At West Hills, our people drive our ministry. We believe God desperately wants to use the Church to redeem our broken world, but He doesn’t need more Christians on the sidelines. We’ll put you in the game.
“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
As Paul says here, we give because we know it brings God joy. As he says later in the passage, we give because we believe that in so doing, God will “increase our harvest,” that we may be “enriched in every way to be generous in every way” (Corinthians 9: 10-11). But most importantly, we give because we recognize how much we’ve been given by our Father – the giver of every “good and perfect gift” (James 1:17) – especially salvation through the gift of His son Jesus, and we know that the only response to such overwhelming kindness and generosity is gratitude and openhandedness.

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” (1 Peter 4:10)
When Jesus commissioned the apostles, he sent them to “all Judea and Samaria,” and ultimately “to the end of the earth,” but significantly, the mission starts right where they are already planted “in Jerusalem” (Acts 1:8). Similarly, at West Hills we believe that before we can be a blessing to “all peoples on earth” (Acts 3:25), we have to faithfully serve one another right here at home. Fortunately, we’ve got LOTS of ways for you to do that! In addition to volunteering with the various ministries already mentioned on this site, West Hillians serve each week in dozens of other ways, from the Welcome team to the Worship team, the Fellowship team to the Finance team. No matter what your passion in ministry, we’ll find a place for you to serve!
C.I.A. (“Christians in Action”)
“Extending the ministry of the gospel by being the hands and feet of Jesus to people in need in the surrounding community.”
Jesus commanded, “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). C.I.A. exists to shine light into darkness by showing love and bringing hope to those in need and by doing so, point them to Christ. We mobilize monthly to reach out in tangible ways and serve our community, and we would love to have you join us!
“That Christ may be glorified throughout the world by His people’s obedience to the Great Commission.”
West Hills is blessed to support and serve alongside over a dozen church planters and missionaries both domestically and worldwide, partnering with them in our collective calling to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). Specifically, we challenge every believer at West Hills with our “5 E’s” of missions: 1) EDUCATE with Biblical teaching on global missions, 2) EQUIP with an enlarged vision for global missions, 3) ENLIST support for our missionaries through prayer, 4) ENCOURAGE financial support, and 5) ENGAGE personally with our own unique opportunities to go, witness, and serve.
For more information about ANY of our opportunities to serve, or if you know of a need we might be able to help meet, please contact our church office.
