Westwood has identified five core values. We are on a journey as we integrate these values and areas of focus. We refer to this as a journey because we are not "there yet"—and, truth be told, we've recently begun. These core values have been around longer than any of us, but these are places where we seek to make real, measurable change. 


A church is an ideal place for this work.

  • We can take a long view and provide the resources over time that these areas need.

  • We can engage every decade of our population in this work, with the unique gifts that every person brings.

  • We can ground this work in our deepest convictions as people of faith. Our beliefs both drive and sustain our efforts.


We are called into these spaces to learn and listen, to be allies, witnesses, and advocates, to provide resources and a platform, to name, as the prophets did, a vision for what God wants—to help create a beloved community. At Westwood, we want to live out the idea of Ubuntu: "I am because we are."

Take The Journey With Us

New voices are always welcome on this journey, and encourage you to reach out to be part of the work. At Westwood, we encourage and believe it is our role to live out God's work in the world as part of our Vocation.
