Director's Note


“It is our desire that children experience the gospel of Christ from the time they enter our ministry.”


It is our desire that children experience the gospel of Christ from the time they enter our ministry, whether through the loving care of our staff and volunteers, the message of gospel-centered teaching, or the community and worship with other children.

We want your children to be excited to enter the doors of the W83 Ministry Center to learn more of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In all that we do, we want to impart the gospel to your children, to “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord.”


Please check out the pages on our website using the sidebar on the right. If you have questions or if there is anything we can do to serve you and your family, please contact one of our staff or email [email protected].




With joy and gratitude,

Our theme


The gospel

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).


A city

“Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper” (Jeremiah 29:7).


For generations

“We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. So the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but keep his commands” (Psalm 78:4, 6-7).


Our purpose


Children will experience the gospel of Jesus Christ, and serve and renew the city through the knowledge and application of the gospel.

We work toward this goal by

  • teaching children how to pray and worship
  • immersing children in Scripture
  • encouraging families to serve their city
  • demonstrating God's love through compassionate care

In addition, we seek to encourage and support families in their commitment to stay and engage the city by facilitating, discipling and offering practical support to them as they apply Redeemer’s values and beliefs to their families.
