Westside Church of Christ  
established in Jacksonville, Florida in 1930 under the teaching of Bro. Marshall Keeble. It has hit its highs and lows during its tenue.  The Westside congregation was the first of many accomplishment black or white among the churches of Christ in Jacksonville.  In 1972 the Westside Family Singers appeared on the weekly  Sunday Morning Gospel Hour alongside the first African American news anchor Ken Knight  In 1972.  The same broadcaster was instrumental in establishing the weekly bible study program "Let the Bible Speak."   Bro. Walter Cox., Jr. passed the program on to our son in the gospel in 1988  Bro. Charlie E. McClendon.  To date Bro. McClendon carries the largest congregation within the city of Jacksonville, the Northside Church of Christ.  Bro McClendon who was added to the body of Christ in 1962 under Bro.
