Art Wells serves with IFI’s Cleveland staff. Art and Kristen make their home in Cleveland Heights, Ohio with their 2 children. In 2005, Art began volunteering with IFI’s ministry at The Ohio State University and joined IFI staff in 2009. In 2012, the Wellses moved to Cleveland, Ohio to serve internationals on the campuses in Greater Cleveland with International Friends, a movement which consolidated with IFI in January 2014.
Art enjoys serving international students in their practical needs and helping them discover God’s truth for the first time. He has been meeting students on campus to discuss Jesus and leading Bible studies since he was a university student. Art loves to equip international believers through one-to-one mentorship and in small groups.
Inviting local Christians to a deeper involvement in international student ministry has been a major emphasis in Art’s first years in Cleveland. Art is encouraged by the multiplication of Cleveland staff and volunteer leaders on the campus ministry team and the student lives that are being changed through their work. The recent focus of his personal ministry has been at the Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University campuses.
