Westside began as a Pentecostal satellite church plant in 1982. In the same year, the Pentecostal Academy opened with 50 students under Reverend Dale and Alberta Cummins. Two years later, the Westside congregation assumed its own identity as a separate body of believers from its parent church, the Prince George Pentecostal Tabernacle, and was renamed Westside Family Fellowship. Concurrently, Westside took on administrative and financial responsibility for the Academy, officially renaming it Westside Academy. Pastors Arlo and Marlo Johnson shared joint leadership of both the church and the academy and played pivotal roles in shaping both over the years.
Over the years, Westside has been steadfast in supporting various ministries. This includes missions in Sri Lanka and Kenya, as well as the establishment and ongoing work of the New Life Centre and the Prince George Healing Rooms. In 1991, Pastor Arlo helped found the Emmaus Place Society, providing assisted living services for seniors.
Westside Family Fellowship remains committed to supporting these ministries and many others, believing in the power of seeking after God's purposes in our lives.
