At Westside, we have incredible teams of people who serve our church body. They have a heart to know Jesus and 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.
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.
"So with yourselves, since you are eager for manifestations of the Spirit, strive to excel in building up the church." 1 Corinthians 14:12
Serving Application Form
