“Some want to live within the sound of a church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop, within a yard of hell.” 

-C.T. Studd (1860-1931)

From the Director…

Westside Ministries began humbly 33 years ago in a former parsonage on W.Main St. in Turlock California. Forty children came to have Bible lessons and eat snacks and play games. We have grown exponentially. 600 children come monthly…to play, learn. They discover dance, agriculture and education. And yet with many changes one thing has stayed the same.

The Bible is taught to children with the hope that the seeds that are planted will grow in their lives. These seeds are the change needed in our underserved community. One by one kids experience a ‘new’ way to see themselves and the world.  They have become educators, small business owners, restauranteurs, even a top US Aid official. Because someone saw the need to be the ‘change’ the community needed. Using the power of Jesus Christ.

Be a part!

We are ready for you to engage in the life of a child in need! Plant a seed!

-JoLynn DiGrazia

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and assurance of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

Camp 3:56

Westside Ministries will be hosting our own summer camp in

Pinecrest, Ca June 4-8th 2018.

Camp 3:56 desires to reach kids who need the opportunity to experience life “outside the box”. With equal parts “fun” and biblical teaching, we desire to “reach every camper with every available source”. We believe a week at camp can lead youth and children into closer relationship with Christ as well as positive role models.

There will be two separate programs: Kids Camp and Youth Camp run at the same time at the same facility.

We offer:

Horseback Riding




Wilderness Training

Ropes and Rock Climbing

as well as

Team Sports such as

Kajabe Kan Kan

and more
