Pastoral Appointment

One-on-one scheduled meetings


A pastoral appointment is a scheduled meeting with a member of the pastoral staff to team to talk through an issue or particular spiritual concern. The one-time appointment normally includes a time of listening and prayer with assessment and referral to other resources for continued healing, growth and support.

Because Westwood Church does not provide ongoing counseling, we will refer individuals and couples to therapists to develop ongoing therapeutic relationships. We may also recommend other resources within the community which can provide better services for ongoing places of support and care. However, at times it may be helpful to continue together for a set period of time. This would be determined by the Pastor at the time of your appointment.

If you come to Westwood Church during regular hours, and do not have an appointment scheduled, we cannot guarantee that a pastor will be available to meet with you. If the situation is not urgent, we may offer to schedule an appointment at a later date. If there is a need for immediate pastoral attention, the pastoral staff or ministry team member who is next available will meet with you for a short appointment (30 mins max) and, if necessary, help you find other resources. We highly encourage you to use the button below to make an appointment.

Invest

Marriage

Strong marriages are the foundation to any home, church, and community. At Westwood, we want to do everything in our power to help foster and support healthy marriages. We desire to meet couples where they are at by providing different levels of care in different areas to address those needs.

Premarital Counseling

Engaged? We’ll help you prepare for strong, lasting marriages based on biblical principles. One of the best ways to build a healthy marriage foundation is to help you fully prepare for marriage before the journey even begins.

Re | Engage Marriage Ministry

Re | engage is a small-groups based ministry. Unlike traditional counseling or mentoring where couples meet with an individual or one other couple, we believe life (and marriage) transformation best occurs in the context of relationships with others. A new session began Jan 20, 2020.

Marriage Events

Westwood intentionally invests in healthy marriages by hosting one-day marriage workshops. We bring in experienced, biblically-solid marriage professionals to facilitate a day of instruction, sharing, and humorous stories to help couples improve their communication, increase their intimacy, and work towards common goals. Workshops are open to all ages and stages of marriage.

Marriage Guidance

A Westwood pastor is available to meet with married couples on a short-term basis to provide a place to examine the condition of their marriage and, if necessary, discuss options for beginning the process of restoring the marriage through outside counseling resources. Call for a one-time pastoral appointment.

Financial Ministry

Our hope is to help people to become financially free to serve God’s purpose for their life.

No matter where you are in your relationship with money, we have a resource that can help you grow into the money-manager that God wants you to be. Designed to encourage you in your next stewardship steps, we offer financial classes, seminars, and individual coaching. We address topics like budgeting, saving, debt, investing, giving, relating about money, and other financial topics.

Financial Freedom Class

Join Westwood Attender and Financial Planner, Jason Hallonquist to learn the basics of financial success in your home.
