What is Springfest?

Springfest is a weekend youth conference for junior high and high school students from across California. We come together to worship God, encourage one another and serve in our local community.

Activities Include…

Worship, games, free time, service projects, meals, breakout classes and experience-based prayer times.

Community Service

Two years ago, we began setting aside time during Springfest to give back to our community through service projects that support local nonprofits and ministries that do incredible work in Kern County throughout the year.

Over the past two years, we’ve sent over 250 students and chaperones to volunteer at several local organizations such as:

  • The Mission at Kern County
  • Bakersfield Homeless Center
  • Teen Challenge
  • Covenant Community Services
  • Society for Disabled Children
  • Ronald McDonald House
  • The HOPE Center

Our students and chaperones have absolutely loved serving in our community, and we’re excited to expand this emphasis on community service for Springfest 2018.

Free Housing Available!

Free housing with members of Westside Church of Christ is available for out of town guests on a first-come, first-served basis. Breakfast is included at your home free of charge.

Christian College and Nonprofit Fair

This year at Springfest, you and your family will have the chance to meet with admissions officers from several Christian colleges, college students from faith-based students groups, and local nonprofits during our first-ever Christian College and Nonprofit fair.

These organizations will set up displays inside our church gymnasium on Saturday, April 7 from 9am-1pm so that parents, students, and community members can learn more about the opportunities that have to further their education at a Christian college, give back in their local community and get involved in student groups that promote the love, justice and healing that is found through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

This free event is open to the public, and we highly encourage the families of students who attend Springfest to check it out! Check out Westsidelife.org/Springfest for updates on which organizations will be participating.
