At West Hills, Global Mission is an extension of the work that Jesus gave us as a local community of believers to do. We are a people who are about seeing the gospel go forth to those who are lost and showing the mercy of God to people everywhere, be they down the street, in our city or across the globe. The people we have sent out are not just hired hands, they are important parts of our church community who happen to live in other places to carry out the work God has given our church to do.
Interested in finding out more about how to get involved in Global Mission at West Hills? Curious about what God might have you do? Contact Pastor Brad for more information.
