For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

Westside Fellowship has numerous ministries, some which focus on serving the families of the church, while others are designed specifically to reach out to the community and meet the needs of the people right where they are.
As a part of an effort to worship Christ, walk with Christ and work for Christ, we believe that all members are called to serve God by serving others.  We work diligently to equip and train you to carry out the ministry that God has shaped you for.  Contact us for more information about how to discover your SHAPE for ministry by looking at your 1)  Spiritual Gifts, 2)  Heart, 3)  Abilities, 4)  Personality, and 5)  Experiences.
