Updates from Westside ministries

Hi Westside Church! Earlier this month we sent out an i heart text asking for your help. A soon to be mom had just left an abusive situation and had nothing for baby boys arrival in June. She had secured housing, but needed a small crib, baby blankets, baby boy clothes, diapers, wipes, infant car seat, diaper bag, and baby swing.

Thank You SO much for helping us provide this brave new mom with everything she needed! Thank you for being a part of this i heart text ministry. We appreciate you! 

I HEART 365

I Heart 365 is our Outreach texting system! Short explanation? We send out needs via text, and you, upon receiving the text, have the ability to respond to those needs that resonate with you or that match a resource that you already have. (bicycles, extra coats, baby supplies, ect.) 

OK! So how does it work exactly? 
1. Trusted agencies, or one of our own Community Group leaders, calls Westside Church and asks if we can help with a specific need for a family or an individual.  
2. We send out a brief text describing the situation and the items needed. 3. Those who would like to respond bring their donations to the Westside Church office. 
4. Westside facilitates delivery of all of the donated items to the family or individual in need.

It’s that simple! And because I Heart 365 is a group of more than 800 people who want to help those struggling in our community,  there is never any obligation to respond to a texted need unless you feel inspired to.  Also, we intentionally only send out two I HEART 365 text needs a month, in order to choose prayerfully and facilitate well. 

To sign up for our I HEART 365 texting line, and start hearing about specific needs and opportunities to help, text ih365 to 313131.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s Foster Family Appreciation Project! There are more than 260 foster families in Central Oregon, and every single one of them received a “Family Fun Box” through our partners at Every Child. We were able to bless thirty of these families with these resources because of your generosity. Here’s a note from our partners at Every Child Central Oregon (ECCO):

Dear Westside Church,

Thank you so much for continuing to show up and give to our local foster families. It was so amazing that you assembled and delivered to 30 families in Bend. These families were so appreciative and blessed by your generosity. Again, thank you for partnering with us and giving your hearts to children and families in our foster system.

Sincerely,

your ECCO team

Thank you for donating the items, counting and sorting the items, shopping for the items still needed, assembling the bags, and delivering them.  This project had 22 volunteers with a total of 50 hours serving.

With this event, we were able to communicate to these families that they are seen and loved and appreciated for the hard work they are doing by taking care of our city’s “orphans”. 

So, job well done, Team!

This week marks the completion of For The City, a 2-year giving and serving campaign. When we launched this campaign in the spring of 2019, we didn’t realize how God would use this campaign to strategically position our church to support and encourage families in our community throughout the unexpected challenges of the past 14 months. Today, we still desire to embody the way of Jesus: to love God and love people. As we intentionally engage in proximity to our city, we will see the life and love of Jesus bring transformation to everyone, everywhere across Central Oregon and beyond.

The Campaign is complete, but the initiatives will continue. To give to the For the City initiatives moving forward, select “Ministry Fund” on our Giving Page.

We’re excited to be involved in supporting Foster Families and Foster Kids here at Westside. There are multiple ways to get involved as a family. Foster Family Appreciation and The Birthday Club, as well as attending information meetings about supporting foster kids or exploring fostering as a family. Your family can help create great birthday memories through The Birthday Club or offer much-needed support and encouragement through Foster Family Appreciation.

Let’s help every child experience family by expanding our own hearts to include children in the foster care system.

You can find information about all these opportunities HERE.

Last year, 11,238 children spent time in foster care throughout the State of Oregon.

66.1% spent time in more than one foster home. Many were split from their siblings. And right now, there are 8 children over 10 right here in Central Oregon awaiting homes. 

We envision a world where family is restored to every child. We see the family being redefined, beyond blood or relation, as people who take care of each other because they see the face of the Creator in the faces of each other. 

Let’s partner together to see and surround children and families, and to support and encourage the city agencies who are courageously advocating for the safety and well-being of children. Let’s bring the Hope of Jesus to our city.

Two Opportunities to Get Involved:

Foster Family Appreciation Project

In the month of May, we want to help Every Child give a Family Fun Box to every foster family in Central Oregon that includes:

  • Family-focused activities and fun items for kids: Arts and crafts, board games, puzzles, baking items, sports balls, educational activities, $25 gift cards.
  • Foster Parent appreciation items: Candles, journals, soap, lotion, blue tooth speakers, tools, $25 gift cards. Anything that shows love and care! 

To join in, bring any of these unused items to the Westside Church office by May 6th (Office Hours are M-TH 9-2).

Birthday Club

Birthdays are more than just a day to receive presents, they help you to feel special and to know that you matter. But many foster children are likely to receive very few or even no gifts on their birthday.

Our Birthday Club fills this gap, purchasing presents for foster kids and others identified as children in need. We have a beautiful opportunity to make a child’s birthday wishes come true while surrounding parents and foster parents with care and support.

Two Live Zoom Events to Learn More:

Discover Meeting: There is something you can do to support vulnerable kids

Attend a live zoom event hosted by Every Child on May 11th to learn how you can be involved in supporting vulnerable kids in care and those who serve them. The meeting starts at 7:00 pm and will finish by 8:30 pm. 

Explore Fostering: What it’s like to foster children in Central Oregon

Every Child is hosting a live zoom event on May 21st from 7:00 pm-8:30 pm for anyone interested in an inside look at foster care. You will learn about the process and hear from foster parents about what it’s really like to foster kids here in Central Oregon.

Thank You so much for helping ensure that every single child experiences family and that no family walks alone! For more information or questions regarding Foster Care in Central Oregon, contact us here.

You may have heard that Westside has moved to a shared leadership model with three co-Senior Pastors. More accurately, Westside is formalizing a shared leadership model that has been in effect to some degree for the past seven years. This decision adds Pastor Evan Earwicker and Pastor Ben Fleming as co-Senior Pastors alongside Pastor Steve Mickel.  

Yes, we now have three Senior Pastors.  

Pastor Steve will continue to function as a “chief among equals” as we build collaborative, team-oriented structures to support the long-term health of Westside Church. Pastor Evan and Pastor Ben have been and will continue to take on expanded responsibilities. The Leadership Team will continue to function with Ben and Evan continuing their roles on that team. Pastor Mike Alexander will continue as Westside’s Executive Pastor.  Pastor Rod Kirk, Pastor Suzanne Mickel and Kimberly Alexander will also continue in their roles on the Leadership Team as Pastor of Operations, Outreach Pastor and Director of Discipleship, respectively. 

For most Westsiders, this change will cause little noticeable difference in how the church functions, since shared leadership has been in process behind the scenes for several years. 

Christ and the New Testament Church modeled shared leadership structures from the outset of the early Church. In Mark 3:13-15, Jesus inaugurated this shared leadership model when he appointed a group of 12 to “preach and have authority” and in Matthew 23, Jesus warned these disciples against taking on lofty titles that would elevate a single leader above the rest (Matthew 23:8-12). In Acts 8, Peter and John ministered in Samaria as a team. Peter would eventually write in 1 Peter 5, that he was a “fellow elder” among many others serving Christ and His church throughout the world. Even Paul shared leadership of the church in Antioch with Barnabas (Acts 11:25-26) and in Acts 14, Paul and Barnabas handed this authority to a group of elders (Acts 14:23). Decisions in the prominent Jerusalem church were not made by a single apostle but shared by a council of elders (Acts 15).  

While singular pastoral leadership is common in churches throughout history, the New Testament does not prescribe, prioritize or describe the placement of an individual, elevated Senior Pastor. The New Testament more commonly displays a shared, collaborative approach to leadership and local church structures that involved a broad mix of leadership gifts for healthy and balance (see 1 Corinthians 12:12-31). Paul made it clear that only one singular figure should lead the Church: “Christ, who is the head” (Colossians 1:18). The model of a singular, elevated church leader (bishop, priest, pastor) does not clearly emerge until the 2nd-4th centuries. 

Frequently Asked Questions 

What will be each Senior Pastor’s role? 

Steve—Lead Pastor, primary weekend speaker / vision-caster, Leadership Team member, leadership development, Foursquare Board member. 
Evan—Creative Arts Pastor, Leadership Team member, expanded weekend speaking, mentorship and shared lead pastor functions with Steve. 
Ben—Generations Pastor, Leadership Team member, expanded weekend speaking, mentorship and shared lead pastor functions with Steve. 

Were others considered alongside Evan and Ben?

Ben and Evan play a unique role on Westside’s Staff. Both are part of the Leadership Team and have been involved in every decision Westside has made over the past several years. They also are currently the only pastors on the Leadership Team who both desire and have the experience to be senior pastors and this leadership model enables them to lead at that level in a team environment.

Are women eligible for senior pastoring at Westside?  

Yes. While Evan and Ben are currently the only pastors serving on the Leadership Team desiring senior leadership, one of Westside’s long-standing staff values has been the continued development and promotion of all staff members (both men and women) to all levels of leadership, teaching, and influence. We’re proud to be part of a denomination (Foursquare) that was founded by a woman and welcomes women to lead at the highest levels in local churches and the denominational level.

What happens if one of the three senior pastors move on in their career/ministry?

It is possible that others would be added to the senior pastor team and if one of the three leaves Westside, it is presumed that others (men and women) would be considered for those roles. If Pastor Steve leaves, Foursquare would appoint another Lead Pastor to lead this team and Westside.

How is the church structured and how are decisions made? 

Westside Church is a member of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel (ICFG), a denomination known as Foursquare. Foursquare uses a modified episcopal form of government and polity (The episcopal form of government is a type of church structure and is not tied to the Episcopal Church).  In short, Westside is a local congregation that is part of the Foursquare denomination that participates in a blend of individual authority and local autonomy with a healthy system of checks & balances provided by the Northwest District Team and Director, a Sectional Director, Westside’s Church Council and a local Lead Pastor. Westside uses a shared leadership, team-centered model for decision making that leverages trust, candor and healthy team structures to collaborate, discuss, wrestle with and make important decisions. Distinct values ensure this shared leadership structure and approach to decision making does not disintegrate into leadership by consensus, committee or vote. 

Will Ben and Evan continue to oversee the Creative Arts and Generations departments? 

Yes. Their departmental oversight and current responsibilities are not going away. 

Are there any other churches doing this? 

Yes. Many organizations including churches have tried variations of shared leadership over the years—some successful, some unsuccessful. When the shared leadership model fails, it is most often due to one or more of the co-leaders ultimately refusing to share decision-making and leadership. Ego and ambition are the kryptonite of shared leadership. This is often why successful shared leadership models are especially rare in the business world. 

We have had lengthy, personal conversations with co-Senior Pastors at two large west coast churches with similar values and DNA to that of Westside. Both churches have been successfully using shared leadership models and co-Senior Pastor for years. One of the churches has three to four co-Senior Pastors at any given time and the other has two co-Senior Pastors. These are full co-Senior Pastors (not associate pastors or campus pastors).

On Wednesday, April 28th at 7pm we are gathering a small group of Westside Community Group leaders to have a round table discussion about the future of community at our church. This is a time where we want to hear from you. This is not a one way discussion. Pastors Steve and David will set the table with some thoughts and questions and then we will talk about what has worked in the past, what hasn’t and where we all sense the Lord is leading Westside. The voice of Home Church and Community Group leaders is extremely important so please register for your spot (either in person or virtual) for this night of discussion.

A simple email to home church leaders addressing supply needs for an outreach trip to Africa ended up bringing in donations totaling around $1500. Brent Earwicker, Global Outreach Coordinator said, “I wanted to report that Westsiders were so generous, purchasing most of the items off the Amazon wishlist: tents, sleeping bags, boat parts, lifejackets, & audio equipment. I was able to carry some of them over in February, and will be taking the rest in May on my next trip.”

Earwicker also said, “It was fun to be inundated with boxes full of useful gear to help propel our African teams forward on Lake Victoria and throughout East Africa. Life and ministry is so tough over there, when we get the chance to resupply their tools & service items it goes a long way!”

It was wonderful to have a way to quickly get the word out to Home Churches! And thank you to everyone who stepped up to the need and gave so generously.

Here’s a shot of the director, Moses Lubega, in a new tent they slept in on Buvuma Island.

Thank you to all the families who came and created Care Packs for the homeless at our Family Outreach Event on Saturday.

It was wonderful to see the creativity and love that went into making cards that were included in all of the Care Packs. The group put together over 400 Care Packs! Half are going to the Warming Shelters, with the other half sent home with these awesome families to hand out to people in need. Way to go, Westside Families!

Our Donation Drive this week for cold weather gear also was a huge success! All supplies collected will be donated to local Warming Shelters serving our community this winter.

Thank you, Westsiders, for your love, care, and generosity to our community!

Josh Cordell, our Westside Family Pastor, reported the following,

“We hosted a beautiful event at Westside Church on Saturday. We had around 30 families come put together care packages for the homeless in our area. Included in the package was a cute card, colored on one side with a handwritten note or encouraging word on the other side.

A seven-year old told me, “It feels good to help people.” Isn’t that the truth!

One family told me that their six-year old, on a recently cold day, had pointed out how she felt bad for homeless people having to deal with the weather. That same day they received the email about this event.”

It was so good to see families serving together. One of the best things was a family with three teenagers all sitting together coloring their cards… and loving it!

Stay tuned for more impacting Family events to come!

So good Pastor Steve. What a narrow distance there is between believing God will fulfill His promises and presuming God will do whatever we ask in the way and timing that we ask for it. He is Sovereign! Sandy

Dont copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know Gods will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. -Romans 12:2
