What Western Hills Is Like
Western Hills is a loving and supportive church of 375 members with a youth ministry of around 40 students.
Western Hills has three ministers currently: Kyle Bowen, the Youth Minister, has been in ministry for nearly five years and has been at Western Hills for a year, Scott Meyer, the Senior Minister, has been in ministry for over twenty years and has been at Western Hills for fifteen years, and Scott Seela, the Children’s Minister, has been in ministry for over twenty five years and has been at Western Hills for thirteen years. (Fun Fact: Both Scott’s were interns for Robert Oglesby).
Western Hills is located in Temple, Tx which is a town of around 80,000 people located an hour north of Austin and 2 hours south of Dallas on I-35.
We are theologically moderate as a church, although our youth ministry is fully-inclusive towards women. We are passionate about equipping our members to live life with Jesus, in Community, and on Mission. This focus has recently led us to plan a combined worship service with an African American church in Temple and other strategic efforts to reach out into our community.
