Sacred Well Congregation International was founded in 1994 as a Universalist, independent, non-evangelical Wiccan Church, organized for the purpose of conducting and promoting religious study, worship and ordination of clergy in Wicca while also embracing early on other alternative Spiritual Paths. Since then, while retaining our original focus, our membership and services have grown more inclusive to provide open, public venues, fellowship and training for the practice of Natured Centered religions. We promote community benevolence efforts, spiritual counseling, and religious educational programs, and provide extensive spiritual and administrative support to service members, their families and military communities. SWCI now sponsors hospital Chaplains, military Distinctive Religious Groups, and is a recognized Ecclesiastical Endorsing Organization with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Board of Chaplaincy Certification, Inc. (BCCI). SWCI provides denominational sponsorship to those groups and faith group leaders whose congregants and officials require it to sponsor their practice. Finally, in conjunction with multiple educational institutions, and as a member of BCCI, SWCI provides an intern program resulting in ordination of professional clergy for a myriad of Nature Centered Spiritualities.
