Ministry Teams

“I serve because Jesus has served me, and as we serve we become more like him. He works out our sanctification in us as we follow in his example. I’m on the Video Team because I feel that God has called me to film production and I really strongly believe that God calls us to give what we have. This is something I have, so I feel like it’s something I can give.”
Jonathan Bryden - Video Production Team

SERVING AT WESTSIDE

At Westside, we have incredible teams of people who serve on ministry teams, with the heart to make Jesus known and to serve each other through the offering of their gifts, time and talents. Ministry Teams are a great way to get involved, meet others within our church body and serve together at Westside.

"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen." 1 Peter 4:10-11

If you'd like to get involved, take a look at the team descriptions below and fill out the form for whichever area you'd like to serve in! Whatever your individual gifts, passions and talents are, you can use them to serve alongside others in the body of Christ.
