How The Well Got Started – The Story


Pastors Carl and Leann Albrecht – 

DSC05826 - Version 2

In September of 2007 Carl and I started holding meetings in our home for the sole purpose of making space for the Lord to meet with us. Since we were still travelling extensively at that time, we met sporadically when we were in town. Soon we moved to a friend’s home as we outgrew our living room.

Before long we moved to a store front near Opryland Northeast of Nashville and met there twice month for another 2 years.

As of January, 2013 we felt the Lord was calling us to make The Well a full-time priority and to meet every week. At the same time, He told us it would not look like the typical church paradigm. For this season we were not to meet on Sundays or Wednesday nights but on Tuesday evenings. He always has a plan in mind and this is “why” He instructed us in such a way. So we live in obedience. With growth and the passing of time NOW the Lord has opened up a new territory and time for us. North of the city AND Sunday and Wednesday meetings.

The Well is available for those who are:

1) Looking for a consistent gathering of Christian believers who need a weekly church home.

2) Already established in a home church but want to experience the deeper things of the Spirit through worship, the Word and prayer …..and are available to only come occasionally.

3)  Travelling on weekends and can not consistently be a part of a fellowship of believers due to their work schedules …like musicians and artists.

4) Travelling through Nashville on business or pleasure and need a place to meet with the Lord during the week.

5) Pastors and other leaders who need  a fresh filling or personal inspiration from the Spirit.

We also felt the Lord compel us to move from central Nashville to the north side in Goodlettsville. Miraculously the door opened for us to begin meeting at the Goodlettsville Plaza, just off of 65N. at Rivergate Parkway. Details here: –

Every Wednesday @ 7pm AND Sundays @ 10:30am.

Every meeting is uniquely different because our only agenda is to have a personal encounter with Jesus.

John 4:13-14   Jesus answered, “Those who drink this water will get thirsty again, 14 but those who drink the water that I will give them will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give them will become in them a spring which will provide them with life-giving water and give them eternal life.”

Everyone is welcome – no age limits – no dress codes. Come hungry and thirsty and you will be filled.

It’s an honor for Carl and I to pastor The Well of Nashville. We look forward to seeing you soon… either in person or on LIVE STREAM.

Many blessings to you all!!

About Leann & Carl


  1. I just want to let you know you’ve been a great encouragement for me recently through The Well of Nashville meetings I’ve found in streaming (from Italy). So your ministry is touching lots of people thanks to internet!!
    I don’t think you remember me but we met once in Italy several yrs ago, I was in a conference in Tuscany where you were the speakers and worship leaders. Being involved in praise and worship ministry since mid 80’s, I listened to your work for the Lord in dozens of Hosanna Music projects, but I didn’t know the Lord had called you also as Pastors. Thank you for your humble heart, I’ve really been blessed by the honesty of your worship and I like the vision of the “Well”, a place to soak in God presence and experience Him with a simple heart! I’ve found “by chance” on Facebook the link to Carl’s recent miracle and his testimony. That service when He was giving glory to God for sparing Him came at the right time, just when I had been to ER as well and was experiencing discouragement concerning my health. Jesus is so good! I really appreciate you and how God is using you as a couple, lots of blessings from Italy!

    • Thanks so much Andrea. So glad you can join us via the internet. We hope to return to Italy someday… in the Lord’s time. Peace, Carl & Leann
