Ministers & Staff

Josef Bilnoski – Senior Minister

Josef's family

Josef officially joined West U in January 2021 after serving the Lord at Houston’s Impact Church of Christ since 2009. A native of the Houston area, he and his wife of 20 years, Karla, are the proud parents of four boys. Josef is a graduate of the South Houston Bible Institute. “My family and I consider ourselves very blessed to be serving at West U and are excited about what God has planned for this church,” he says.

Stanley Petrisky – Worship Leader and Youth Minister

Stanley has been leading worship services at West U since late 2018 and officially joined our staff as the Youth Minister in the summer of 2020, as well as taking on roles within the church office. Prior to this, Stanley was a teacher of music for youth in Rosenberg; his musical talents are still being used in barbershop quartets in the Port Lavaca area. Stanley’s love of music is matched by his love of puns as a source of humor, as well as his general liking of golf (including disc golf).
