The youth ministry has seen a great deal of change over in Westbury's more than 50 years of existence. At times, its student attendance numbered into the hundreds. Other times, Wednesday night activities were lucky to see twenty students. As Westbury's youth ministry navigated the ebbing and flowing waters of church culture and emerged as the Branch we know today, God's love and faithfulness have been steady, evidenced by the hundreds of teens and families whose lives have been positively impacted by the Branch. Now, the Branch continues to grow and become a thriving community of believers for teenagers and their families.
The Youth Ministry at Westbury Baptist Church seeks to engage our students, and in turn have them engage their communities. A Christian community is one that loves each other and sticks with each other through the good and bad times. It is also one that is rooted in God's word and is willing to encourage, meet needs, admonish and teach those in the community. As our students learn how to do this they are better equipped to engage the many communities they are involved in. These communities include their church, homes, schools, choirs, bands, clubs and sports teams.
