Westside Youth is place where we nurture spiritual growth, community, and equip our teens to be missional in their own environments. Being a disciple of Jesus is still relevant. Following Jesus is less about trying to be a good person (which is never bad) and more about being transformed by Jesus – his life and message. That’s freeing and exciting.

When His light shines in and through our youth they will begin to carry His love and life into their schools, with their friends and families, becoming a witness to others. Jesus reminds us in Matthew 5:14-16 that his followers are a beacon of light for the world to see. This isn’t always easy, especially in our cultural context, but we have this promise from Jesus that he will be with us and guide us through it (John 16:33b).

Our hope is to see our teens experience Jesus and find freedom in His truth, grace, and love. Come check-it out for yourself and invite your friends.

Supporting Youth Ministry

The resources we pour into Youth ministry are part of our larger budget at Westside. We use funds for new equipment, snacks, activities, content, leadership development, and so on. Our facility provides room for our youth ministry to grow. Westside wants to keep fuelling ministry to the next generation. If you are a regular donor at Westside, thank you so much! A portion of your giving fuels the next generation.

Please keep praying for our youth ministry, specifically for a sense of belonging and of course for the Holy Spirit to draw our students to the lordship of Jesus. Pray for energy and discernment for our youth team.
