Fall Kickoff!

This is an exciting time at Westwood! Fall Kickoff begins the start of a new season of Student Ministries for our high school and middle schoolers, opportunities to get involved with a small group, a chance to serve at one of our campuses along with our Here, Near, and Far partnerships, and events to grow in our faith. To see all the opportunities available this fall season, explore the sections below!
  • Next Gen

    We are passionate about creating an environment where kids and students can have fun while growing in their discovery of Jesus and His love for them!

    Kids Ministry

    Our Kids Min volunteers have huge hearts that care for families and pour into the next generation. Whether you want to welcome new families, play with a preschooler, or lead a group of school-aged kids, we’d love to have you join our inspiring, talented team!

    Get Involved!


    Student Ministry

    In Student Ministry, we love seeing our middle and high school students get into community and walk through life with Jesus. We get together to worship, have fun, and engage in conversation in large and small groups on Wednesday nights at Westwood and we would love to welcome your student!

    Middle School Wednesday Nights – Chanhassen

    High School Wednesday Nights – Chanhassen

    Middle School Wednesday Nights – Bush Lake

    High School Wednesday Nights – Bush Lake

    Student Ministry Wednesday Nights – Westonka


    It’s been shown that to grow a vibrant and lasting relationship with Jesus, every student needs a handful of intentional mentors that invest in their life. If you love students and want to grow your faith while impacting others, there is no better place to serve than student ministry!

    Get Involved!

  • Groups

    We believe that God created all people to live in community with one another. In community we experience grace, receive encouragement, and can find the support we all need to thrive through life’s challenges. At Westwood we do that in groups. We have a number of opportunities for you to find community in a group here at Westwood this fall. Check out our available groups!

  • Serve

    God could have made us all the same, but He didn’t. He gave us each unique talents, resources, and life experiences. When we share those with others, we grow deeper in our relationship with Him. We want to invite you to take a next step at Westwood and join a serve team! Let us know you’re ready to learn more or join a team at any of our campuses below.

    (NEAR) The Hub:

    The ministry Hub, located in the Bush Lake Campus is not only home to three churches, it is also a launching ground for new churches, a training ground for local ministry leaders and a support space for effective local ministry outreach. We are looking for people who want to lend their unique expertise to help new churches with things like, leadership development, website creation, incorporation, children’s ministry and more. To get involved, click below.Get Involved!


    (FAR) Prayer Opportunities:

    Westwood hosts two regular opportunities to join in prayer for the most current needs of our Far Partners.  One takes place every Wednesday morning at 7:00am and the other happens monthly on the second Wednesday of the month at 12pm.  Both prayer times last approximately one hour. To get connected, please contact Chaz Nichols.


    (FAR) Stay and Pray:

    For every ministry team that Westwood sends to serve our Far Partners, we also have a Stay-and-Pray team that commits to praying for the travelers, ministry and ministry partners.  When you sign up, you will receive regular emails with updates from the team and how to pray for them as they travel.  There will be several trips coming up this fall with Stay-and-Pray teams that we invite you in to:
