Youth Ministries at Westwood are all about bringing youth to a place of encountering the reality and awesomeness of God and committing themselves to a personal relationship with Jesus. It is a place for youth to shed their old lives and to press on toward perfection in Christ in a solid community that is built upon scripture. It’s about youth, but it’s more than that, it’s about youth catching the grander vision of the gospel and being challenged to live lives that shake the world.
