Ethos Academy

West Side Bible Church is proud to partner with an independent, public charter school. Ethos Academy is part of the TeamCFA, a network of free, public charter schools, built on the values of hard work, good citizenship, and teamwork.

Ethos Academy’s ultimate goal is to graduate thoughtful, articulate youth who are prepared to become productive, accountable, and engaged citizens. By partnering with smaller, community and faith based organizations, they can not only provide a quality education, but do so in a small, stable, family-oriented environment. For more information on enrolling your children in Ethos Academy, contact them at 623-262-1201, or visit their website at

20151009_123018On Friday, October 9th West Side Bible Church held a welcome luncheon fethos groupor the staff of Ethos Academy.

Although the school had already been open for several weeks, it wasn’t until now that their schedule had slowed down enough for everyone to catch their breath, and had time for a welcome party. Most of the  Ethos staff and several of members of West Side were able to attend, visit, and get acquainted.

Pastor Hofmann gave a short introduction and welcome before the lunch, and the fellowship continued for about an hour. The staff had had to finish the day with teacher training, and looked forward to the coming fall break for the next week.

It was a great opportunity to get to know one another, and express our gratefulness to Ethos for the fantastic job they are doing in providing a loving, family oriented education opportunity to the public.

Glenhaven Youth Ranch

glenhavenyouthranch2[1]For nearly twenty years, Glenhaven has provided long-term, Christian residential placement for young men at risk. It is a place of peace and beauty, isolated from many of the adverse outside influences of the world. As the cattle quietly graze in the pastures, the homes and school are a hub of activity and learning. It is in these settings that young men come to terms with the struggles that each have inside of themselves.

American Freedom Assembly

We help young people understand that the solution must come from within. Only through their good decisions on a day by day basis will they be able to take control of their lives.

Reports of violence, illiteracy, teenage pregnancy and drugs sound the alarm that everything is NOT OK with our most valuable legacy – the youth of America. If you are looking for the answer to get back on track whether a young person, parent, teacher, counselor, principal or administrator we have found the solution. We will share this solution with your area high school through our American Freedom Assembly programs.

Basic Training Bible Ministries

Gene-NanThe purpose of this ministry is to presentisagogical, categorical and exegetical Bible teaching, and to facilitate the distribution of this material through face-to-face teaching, audio cassette tapes, and books and materials required in the teaching of the Word of God as outlined in basic Bible doctrine.

The thrust of this ministry is to make sound doctrine available to believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, to the end that each believer might become spiritually self-sustaining; i.e., “until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature believer, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness, in deceitful scheming.” (Ephesians 4:13-14)
