A Look Inside Westwinds

A church for the misfits and miscreants, rabble and rebels. We’re an orthodox (meaning: not crazy, not cultists) church with an unorthodox (meaning: high energy, non-traditional) approach, on mission to shadow God, build the church, and heal the world.

A church in which everybody gets to play and a mission to which everyone can belong.
