Who We Are -

A group of staff, adult volunteer leaders, college leaders & even some high school students who involve and invest themselves in the lives of high school and middle school students.  We are followers of Jesus who want to live out the love of Jesus with each other and our student-friends. If you would like to contact us directly you can reach...

What We Do - It all fits under the umbrella of WY-FI (Westminster Youth Fellowship Initiative)

Three words control, focus and direct all we do - Identify, Purpose, Relationships.  We believe that in Jesus we find out who we really are, what we were designed to experience in life and how to live in good true and right relationships with others.

We seek to follow the model of Jesus' ministry by going where our student friends are before inviting them to come where we are. We hope to introduce them to Jesus, challenge them to follow Him, and walk with them along the way.  Building friendships is of primary importance because we believe Jesus died & rose again to make us friends with God.

Our programs and activities are driven by our relationships - they are designed to present the Good News of God's Grace and to help us and our student friends grow in that grace.  They include our outreach efforts of Young Life & Wyld Life; our discipleship components of WY-FI Sunday Mornings and Campaigner Bible Study Breakfast; and our service opportunities with the Soup Kitchen, Good Fellows, and Work Crews. 

 

WY-FI Sunday Mornings 

 We gather with our middle school and high school friends in the Emory Road House from 11:00am - 12:00pm at 105 Emory Road for food, fellowship, and bible study. Our 6th graders participate in "Quest" (our communicants class) downstairs while the 7th through 12th graders study different passages of Scripture related to the issues they face. We meet in a large group and then break up into gender specific small groups for discussion. Our youth staff and several volunteer leaders lead this time.

 

YOUNG LIFE
Young Life is part of the way we fulfill the Great Commission in the high school community and with our own youth. A 50+ year, international ministry outreach, Young Life reaches out to spiritually disinterested high school students who are disinterested in the Church. Westminster employs this ministry as its vehicle for youth ministry in the church and community. Leaders go where "kids" are to "earn the right to be heard" by them. Young Life "club" meets Monday nights (during the school year) at the Emory Road House from 8:00-9:00pm for an hour of singing, fun, games, and a clear presentation of the good news of Jesus Christ. We also take a trip to Frontier Ranch in Colorado every summer and weekend retreat to Windy Gap, North Carolina in the fall.                                 

 

WYLDLIFE
Very appropriately named, this is Young Life for junior high students. WyldLife "club" is a "wyld" hour of games, skits, and off-the-wall humor with a relevant and clear communication of the gospel message. This happens every Wednesday night (during the school year) at the Emory Road House from 6:15-7:00pm. We venture on a weeklong trip to Southwind, a WyldLife camp in Oklawaha, Florida during the summer and a weekend at Carolina Point in North Carolina in the spring. 

Campaigners Bible Study for High School - A time for our high school friends to dig deeper together into relationship with Jesus. We spend time in Scripture and discussion focusing on how to apply the truth of God's love to our search for Identity, Purpose & Relationships. We meet every other Wednesday evening this fall beginning on September 4th from 8:00-9:00pm at the Emory Road House.
