Westside College

Known | Encouraged | Cared For

Westside has a long-standing tradition of serving college students for 50+ years. Some of us are from right here in Gainesville and others are from as far away as Asia! Together we are trying to live out (and figure out) what following Jesus looks like as college-age adults. Our mission is to join everyday people on the journey to life's greatest potential in Christ by engaging campus.

Connect in A Life Group

Our desire at Westside is for everyone to get plugged into a Life Group. Life Groups are small groups of people who gather together weekly to grow closer to each other and to Jesus. We feel strongly about Life Groups because we take seriously Jesus' command to "make disciples." Our groups are designed in such a way that community is built as you grow deeper in your understanding of God. This community is important because God uses other people to encourage us, challenge us, and care for us.
