Westside Christian Church is committed to reaching our community and the world with the message of God’s redemption through the proclamation (word) of the Good News of Jesus Christ and the tangible provision (works) of those that have need.
Because of that passion, Westside is committed to partner with, through regular support (financially, as well as personally), of local and global ministries that have that same passion. The following are ministries that we are privileged to support and serve with both locally and across the globe.
Wednesday At The Mission
