Nearly 750,000 people reside in Central Illinois, yet the vast majority do not follow Jesus closely. Recent studies suggest that, despite our Bible-belt location, Central Illinois needs more vibrant churches. We can bring the help and hope of Jesus to our region if we’re willing to fearlessly make room for and seek EVERYONE.
With God’s help, our goal is for West Side to impact 10,000 people a week.
It will take every Westsider living on-mission every day to make this vision a reality. First, we’ll attempt to double our impact on our current campus by adding new kids space, a larger worship center and additional concourse areas designed for connection and growth. From there, we will seek to reproduce West Side’s DNA by extending our impact via new campuses in our region. We won’t stop until every person within our reach has the opportunity to know Jesus and connect with a healthy, inspiring church community.
