RED MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY - We are looking for those who have a passion for our young people, and who would be interested in being volunteer sponsors for RED Student Ministry.  Please contact Tyson Simon for more information, and to schedule a time when you can visit our Student Ministry program to see what being a sponsor entails, to get a better picture of what Student Ministry looks like at Westwood, and to see if this might be the place God is calling you to serve.
