Leadership Spotlight:

Wes & Reyna

Meet Wes and Reyna! These two have been friends for a long time and have been serving here at The Well for several years. We asked them a couple of important and fun questions so that you guys could get to know them a little bit better.

In a few sentences, how did you come to the Lord?

Wes: I was given a book by a middle school teacher of mine called The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel. Reading that made me realize that Christianity had the answers I was looking for, and I decided to look into it more. A few weeks later I dedicated my life to the Lord.

Reyna: I attended a church concert featuring Leeland the summer before my sophomore year of high school. At the end of the service the gospel was presented. I made the decision to go up, and it was then that I came to the Lord.

What’s your favorite food and why?

Wes: Either Thai food or a DQ Blizzard. Why? …Why not.

Reyna: Pizza, because it’s life. I could definitely live off of it if it were healthy.


What person (other than Jesus) who is alive or dead, has had a huge impact in your life, and why?

Wes: My high school football coach, Pete, had a huge impact on my high school experience and he’s largely responsible for the person I became (for better or worse).

Reyna: My uncle because he has been such a great example of living for the Lord. I didn’t grow up in the church, so he has always been someone I have been so encouraged by.


What is your favorite verse of the bible and why?

Wes: Hebrews 12:1-3. It reminds me to fix my eyes onto Jesus and that is how I will run the race of the Christian life well. Kings Kaleidoscope has a great song called “Fix My Eyes” that sums it up pretty well.

Reyna: Psalm 103:8, “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” My favorite verses are those that specifically declare who God is. I am always reminding myself of the characteristics of God and the promises that he is unchanging.

What is your occupation or what are you hoping to do as an occupation one day?

Wes: I currently teach at UCR School of Medicine and after completing my Master’s Degree I’d like to be a full-fledged professor there. Full-time ministry is also a dream job.

Reyna: I am an Infant/toddler teacher. I work with young children in which I foster various areas of their development.


If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one item from home (other than the bible) what would it be, and why?

Wes: A Satellite phone for sure. I would not last long on a desert island so I’d have to get out ASAP.

Reyna: A device to play music. I love listening to music to pass the time.

We hope you have enjoyed getting to know these two a little better. Wes and Reyna meet up with their community group every week on Monday evenings at 7 pm in a home in the Riverside area. Of course, if you are not in a community group sign up now by clicking the button below!
