“I learned a ton about community at WCHS. Then during my college years I became even more aware of how important it is to be part of a smaller community of people who hold you accountable. This is especially true in a culture that has become more and more segregated and individualized, especially among those who are introverted. Jesus said, ‘People will know me because of our love for one another.’ At Westside I was able to be a part of a community of believers who loved God and loved one another.”
“I am also thankful for Westside staff members who invested in me and showed they cared for me as a person – well beyond the time in class. Their mentoring really helped me become a man who loves and lives for Jesus.”
