Meet the Leadership Team of

Wellspring Church

Jason Coache, Lead Pastor

Pastor Jason (hence forth just Jason), is the former youth pastor of Bayside Chapel. During his time there he was asked to consider starting a church in Toms River. Since you are reading this, you can now fill in the blank with what eventually happened! 

Here is the nerdy stuff you may want to know about him, he graduated with his bachelors degree in Biblical Studies from Cairn University. He has a masters degree in Discipleship Ministries from Liberty Theological Seminary and is currently working on a second masters. 

Here is what you really need to know. Play him in any sport and he is going to find a way to win. He loves all his New England sports teams. If you're a hater, its probably just cause you're jealous. Fantasy football. He will crush you. 

He sounds real aggressive, he's not in actuality. He wicked loves his family and his job. Time with his wife is priceless. He loves showing kindness to his community. He's good with the occasional sappy movie (flash back to Save the Last Dance).

What Makes You Laugh?

Carly can be summed up by her addictions; her family, the local church, coffee, and instagram. She thinks Jersey pizza is a cure for most things, really enjoys a good boy band medley and spends way too much time on snapchat.

What Makes You Cry?

Becoming a mom at a young age has given her a heart for young people within the church. It breaks her heart when she sees judgments placed on others based on their appearance and age. She also has a hard time embracing the comeback of velvet clothing. 

Ben Thompson, Guest Experience Lead


What Makes You Laugh?

Funny people. Luckily I have a lot of them around me starting with my wife. My family makes me laugh a lot, we are constantly joking with each other. Blessed with some really good, close friends too! 


What Makes You Cry?

My daughter makes me cry when she plays It Won’t Be Like This for Long by Darius Rucker. I love being a husband and dad to 3 awesome kids so when big life events happen, first day of kindergarten to first day of college, the tears roll. 

Graeme Wilson, Marketing & Communication Lead

What Makes You Laugh?

I love my wife Heather, she brings so much joy to my life and when she does something crazy, I can't help but laugh. Oh, the Office is pretty great too!

What Makes You Cry?

Growing up with family members with mental disabilities (autism, epilepsy), my heart breaks when I see someone taken advantage of because of it. I will always fight and love on those who need it most.

Jillian Apa Goodhew, Well Kids Lead

What Makes You Laugh?

I love really corny jokes. The more groan worthy the joke, the better! If there is a pun, then I'll likely even add it too my inventory of bad jokes. All puns are funny. I eat Laughy Taffy just for the jokes.

What Makes You Cry?

I'm an avid reader and have cried far too often over people that never existed and events that never happened. I once had a flight attendant check that I was OK while I was reading Marley and Me. I am more selective about what I read on planes now.

Krista Raj, Care Lead

What Makes You Laugh?

My husband, Josh makes me laugh even when I want to cry. My family is the best. It's always a good time when we are together and laughter will always happen.

What Makes You Cry?

Injustice. I'm a social worker at heart (and it says it on my college degree) so any form of social injustice hurts me deeply. Also, the fox and the hound has been known to cause me to cry, A LOT...
