Leader Launch


Are you a leader… in your home… in your workplace… in your community… at church? Leader Launch is a Friday evening and Saturday retreat designed to equip Westsiders (and their friends) with the tools needed to lead well, every day, everywhere. Join members of the West Side Staff as we explore important leadership principles from a Christian perspective.

“If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously.” – Romans 12:8

We’ll explore themes including:

  • Creating a Positive Leadership Culture
  • Becoming a Servant Leader
  • Choosing Trust Versus Suspicion
  • Leading Crucial Conversations
  • Developing Emotionally Healthy Self-Leadership
  • The Third Option: Promoting Genuine Peace in Diverse Communities
  • Managing Leadership Anxiety 

West Side believes in equipping and sending out leaders who are eager to grow and serve. Will you join us?
