Dr. Wells has been preaching the Gospel since 1982. He spent 10 years of his life as an assistant pastor and youth pastor. Both of these churches grew to have the largest independent Baptist youth departments in their states. He was a pastor for three and a half years and had one of the fastest growing churches in the state of TN. For the past twelve years he and his family have traveled in the field of evangelism.
Some ministry highlights have been:
