Basics Conference

Basics Conference



Burdens. Criticism. Anxiety. The apostle Paul describes facing all of these as a result of his commitment to Gospel work. Yet, through it all, he is able to testify that he does not lose heart (2 Cor. 4). 

At Basics 2016, we will seek to learn from Paul’s example of ministry.  We will consider his prayers, preaching, and perseverance as a pattern to follow. Join us May 9-11, God willing, as we look to the Bible and enjoy the company of others who understand the particular privileges and challenges of life in ministry

Basics is for men: pastors, missionaries, evangelists, and Christian workers or those training for such roles. To the extent that we value male friendship, support and camaraderie, we do not encourage wives to attend. Our brief but meaningful time is meant to equip, inspire and strengthen us in our demanding work.


May 9-11, 2016.  Check-in is scheduled to start at 12pm on Monday, May 9 and the conference will conclude with lunch on Wednesday, May 11.  A warm invitation is extended to join us for our morning and evening worship services on Sunday, May 8.


The conference will be held at Parkside Church (7100 Pettibone Road, Chagrin Falls, OH 44023).
