Gary and Melissa O’Brien

Tell us a little about yourself:

Melissa and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary later this year and we have two children, Alex (26 years old) and Meredith (23 years old). We live in Hendersonville and we have a precious little Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise mix puppy named Nash.

What most excites you about Well House Church? 

So many things- worship, HouseGroups, our partnership with Gateway Elementary, and new friendships!  But what most excites us about Well House Church is that we began this journey out of a sincere desire to “do church” differently. To minister differently. We dreamed of serving this community right where it is and welcoming the people of this community just as they are. We resisted putting any kind of requirements on how you had to act or how you had to look to be welcomed. Not only do we allow people to seek and ask questions, but we encourage it as a part of the growth of our family. We are so very excited to see what and who God puts in front of us in the future as we humbly seek to serve Him by serving others.

What hobbies/activities/events give you life? 

We love to travel and experience people and cultures unlike our own. We enjoy golf, backpacking and University of Tennessee football! We love spending time with both family and friends and going on walks with our dog Nash!
