The Student Ministry of West Haven

The Student Ministry of West Haven Baptist Church exists to see students drawn to Christ, conformed to Christ, and committed to serving Christ.  We seek transformation in the lives of parents, leaders, and students through the power of the gospel and the Holy Spirit.  


upcoming events

    Join us for a fun day at Worlds of Fun! You must sign-up for this event.  Registration forms are available in the "SUMMER 2017 PARENTS/STUDENTS LETTER".  Registration forms are due by May 31st, 2017.


    Tickets are $35.  Students will need to pack a sack-lunch to eat in the parking lot, and money to eat dinner inside the park.  The park does not allow outside food or beverage, so students need to plan accordingly.

When and Where?

We are currently on summer break.  Students are encouraged to attend a weekly bible study on Wednesday nights.  That study will begin on June 7th. More information will be available soon.


During the school year, the West Haven Student Ministry meets on Wednesday nights, from 6:30 to 8:00 PM.  Students are welcome to arrive earlier to hang out and play games in fellowship with one another.  We have foosball, ping pong, video games, a lounge area, a cafe, and many other outlets for students to engage with one another.  Of course, there is always adult supervision.


Our regular student ministry meetings will kick-off again in August.  The exact date is yet to be determined, but will be posted once available.


Our Student Ministry Director is Bill Weatherford. He is assisted by Associate Director Nathan LaFave and a fantastic group of student sponsors.
