Discipleship at Westside
Westside's Mission and Purpose is to make disciples by helping people know, follow, and serve Jesus here and around the world. This means that everything we do is centered on the gospel and the command to make disciples (Matt. 28:19). A disciple is a learner and follower of Jesus, formed to display Jesus and replicate themselves. Our goal to help people know, follow, and serve Jesus is to make, mature, and multiply disciples of Jesus. At Westside, we are committed to walking with God's people in growth, care and equipping them for ministry work. Discipleship can happen in many different ways, and we provide many aspects of our ministries to encourage deeper growth along your journey.
At Westside, small groups aim to help one another be DOERS of God's Word and not just HEARERS only. Without community, it can be very easy to come to church, sing some songs, listen to a sermon, and then leave without it having any impact on our lives. The hope for small groups is to change this by bringing people together to discuss the previous Sunday's sermon and help one another apply it to their lives. So, in short, small groups are sermon-based and application-based groups.
If you are interested in leading a Small Group, contact Pastor Luke Henry.

A Discipleship Group, or a “D-Group,” is a gender-specific, closed group of 3-5 believers who meet together weekly for the purpose of accelerated spiritual transformation. Groups meet for 12-18 months with the expectation that participants will start their own group. They meet on a weekly basis to help each other grow and mature spiritually and to hold each other accountable. Some weekly habits are bible reading, scripture memorization, journaling, prayer, and accountability. Through our D-Groups, we are creating an intimate setting of intentional discipleship that puts high emphasis on accountability, commitment, responsibility, and expectation. Each believer who goes through a D-Group will experience personal accountability, mutual edification, and spiritual enrichment. If you want to be in a D-Group, your first step is joining a Sunday School Class or Small Group. If you would like more information, please get in touch with Pastor Luke Henry.
Something for everyone.
