  • David Shore  - Lead Pastor 

    Pastor Shore has been in ministry since 1980. His education includes a BA in Biblical Literature and a Master's in pastoral counseling. He seeks not only to effectively pastor Westside, but to reach out to the community, evangelizing the lost and disciplining believers.


  • Kathy Polk - Discipleship Pastor

    Pastor Kathy has been serving in ministry since 2001.  She has a passion for discipleship and works with followers of Christ of all ages. She holds a BA in Psychology and a Master’s in Organizational Leadership from TNU. Kathy believes there is no greater work than discipleship. As a disciple maker, we must first be discipled by Christ, who then multiplies what He does in and through us, to grow His Kingdom. It is a privilege to pour into others, and be poured into by others. When all of God’s people are growing in Christ, the body is functioning to its fullest potential. Pastor Kathy’s objective is to work toward that goal. Her life verse inspires her journey: Philippians 4:13I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”
