Bus Ministry

Brady Wheeler, Bus Ministry Director

WHBC is blessed to offer transportation to and from church services.  A group of more than 20 trained bus drivers and monitors make up our transportation team.  These individuals volunteer many hours of their own time every week in order to provide transportation to those wishing to attend our church services.  The mission of the WHBC bus ministry is first and foremost to glorify Jesus Christ, and to provide safe and efficient transportation to and from church services.
