It’s our mission to nurture a love of Jesus Christ in the young teenagers that attend Westland Sundays, Wednesdays, and Events. Today’s youth struggle in new ways that have never been a problem in the past. Westland leaders work hard to relate to the young students here. As Christians, we must accept others and their faults to show them the type of love that Jesus has for us all. If you are patient, fun and young at heart, you may want to reach out for opportunities to serve in our youth ministries.


TJ Richards

T.J. has a God-sized calling on his life to reach students and open their eyes to the lost all around us, and to gather them together to go on mission.   He wants every student to be bold in sharing their faith and train them how to be sharers of the Gospel everywhere we go.  T.J. is a graduate of University of Houston.  Together with his wife Christi, they have 2 children.  This family loves serving at Westland together and bringing others alongside of them.  T.J. & Christi also help lead the Sunday night Bible Fellowship, Children of the 80’s, and desire to meet other new & young families who want to have families that walk with Jesus in life.


First Monday for High School Students is a catered event with large scale games and just a general great time. We’ve got Christian Hip Hop and party floats, treats and pizza. This is a great opportunity for High Schoolers to come and have a place to bring their friends to play basketball, eat pizza and get to know Westland. This is an opportunity to grow the church and bring in new followers of Christ and show them the way, the light, and the truth. Looking forward to seeing you there!


JR. High Schoolers will enjoy this service held on Wednesday nights from 6:30PM to 8:00PM. We have free pizza and games for teenagers to play after receiving a brief encouraging message from Pastor TJ and then go to small bible fellowship groups where they discuss and learn about Jesus Christ. If you have teenage kids and need a bit of time to yourself on Wednesday nights, bring them to Switch. They will have a great time and enjoy having some pizza and games.


Bible Fellowship is mostly for High Schoolers that meet on Mondays from 6:30PM to 8:00PM.
