Wellspring for Women, formerly Canaan Land Christian Center for Women, is an outreach of Living Waters Ministries founded by Pastor Ed and Valeta Bush.
The Bushes are originally from Montgomery, Alabama, where they both finished high school and attended Huntingdon College. They are certified Christian counselors through Therapon, a Bible-based counselor training program.
Pastor Bush has been a minister since 1979 and has also received training through Christian Life School of Ministry in Montgomery. The Bush's worked with Canaan Land Ministries in the early 80’s and were inspired to establish a similar ministry for women—now Wellspring For Women.
With encouragement from that ministry and sure direction from God, the Bush's began taking girls and women into their home in 1984 and completed the first home unit in 1985. Since that time hundreds of girls and women have come as students to Wellspring from across the nation as well as several foreign countries. In a number of instances, graduates go on to enroll in additional counseling from the Family Guidance Center to further strengthen the family unit.
There are many success stories as the lives of women are truly transformed from the inside out. Wellspring for Women focuses on a true heart change and not just behavior. A key passage that is evident daily is: “If anyone is in Christ, he [she] is a new creation; old things are passed away, behold all things become new.”
