Light In The Darkness

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, and then become a witness of 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:

In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16:33b

His promises are true, and he stands with us to to be light in the world. 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 invites some friends.


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 etc. Our facility gives us 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.


Westside Youth meets weekly in person every Friday evening at 7 p.m.
