Pastor Wells has been blessed by God to use all of his talents in the service of the Lord, compiling an impressive list of accomplishments to the glory of God’s Kingdom.  In 1991, Wells was approached by Mayor Maynard Jackson of Atlanta, GA to select talented vocalists in the Atlanta area, merge their voices and birth a choir to represent the City of Atlanta at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Montreux, Switzerland. Pastor Wells named the resulting ensemble, “The Atlanta SuperChoir.” Their extraordinary performance at Montreux, Switzerland received rave reviews from Europe’s music fans and critics alike.
