The vision of the Westside School of Ministry is to equip the saints for ministry in the local church.

“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:” Ephesians 4:11-12

Core Curriculum


The core of the School of Ministry consists of four foundational courses, each of which includes four eight-week blocks. In the future, our intention is to make these courses available as weekend intensives as well.

Introduction to Biblical Interpretation

Introduction to the New Testament

Introduction to the Old Testament

Introduction to Systematic, Biblical, and Historical Theology

Biblical Languages

Pastor Peter has a passion for encouraging all of God’s people—those who sit in the pew as well as those who stand in the pulpit—to read and study the Scriptures in the original languages for themselves. We offer regular opportunities to learn New Testament Greek and have plans to add Old Testament Hebrew.
