Youth Ministries

youth group hero

Youth ministries at Westside exist to partner with parents to inspire our teens to have a passion for God and desire to impact this world for Him.

Led by Youth Pastor, Ian Williams and excellent leadership teams, youth gatherings are held on Sundays during the school year. "The Power" for junior-highers meets 3:00-5:00 pm while "Bridges" for senior-high youth meets 6:00-8:00 pm See the calendar.

Bible teaching and fun activities encourage teens to build strong and wholesome friendships, develop their own personal walk with God and share Jesus Christ with non-Christian friends. Westside provides other opportunities for teens to get connected, including retreats, youth conferences and concerts.

We make every effort to provide a safe and secure environment for our youth. Because of the widespread problem of child abuse in our society, we have implemented a Child Abuse Risk Reduction (CARR) policy in all of our youth and children's programs.
