Derrick Arellano and family

Based on the unanimous recommendation of the Music and Worship Search Committee and the Personnel Committee, Derrick Arellano will be presented to the Westwood Baptist Church family in view of a call on Sunday, July 12th. Derrick brings more than a decade of congregational music leadership experience and demonstrates a deep and abiding faith. Derrick will lead us in worship on the morning of July 12th. He will also share his testimony, and sing a duet with his wife, Brooke. Brooke is a music educator and she and Derrick share two children; Anson, who will be a freshman at Texas A&M University; and Alayna, who will be a freshman in high school.

At the close of the service will will hold a special called business meeting with the single issue of voting on the call of Derrick Arellano as our next Associate Pastor for Music and Worship. There will be a ballot vote for those able to worship in-person that morning. In addition, we will offer a drive-by ballot voting option for one hour for all members that joined the worship service through one of our live-stream options. The quorum requirement is 10% of our membership, which is a minimum of 59 caste ballots. The candidate must receive a 75% affirmation of those that participate in the voting process. Our hope is that as many as possible will chose to participate in one of the two voting options.
