The Team

Our Founder and Executive Director

Lisa Schmidt is wife to Deacon Joel, mom to four, and fan of all things Cyclones, Cubs, and dark roast coffee. Lisa previously worked in city management so The Well has been a Spirit-inspired adventure blending her community development skills with a love for the Church. Lisa enjoys living the liturgical year in her home, praying through praise and worship music, and gathering with family and friends for coffee and conversation. The Schmidts' church home is St. Pius X in Urbandale, Iowa.

The Well leans on local talent to function, and this ministry has grown into something really special by using the gifts and charisms of women right here within the greater Des Moines community. Should you feel called to share your charisms with us, please reach out to Lisa Schmidt, our executive director, or any one of the women you see below. Through mutual discernment and prayer, and aided by the Holy Spirit, we will find a place for your gifts! (Romans 12: 4-8)
