  • Reaching Out to those in Prison

    In the book of Matthew Jesus calls us to minister to those in prison. Parkside Church has answered that call by partnering with Crossroad Bible Institute.

    CBI provides biblical training to those incarcerated through volunteers who read and grade coursework for inmates anonymously. This provides an avenue of spiritual growth to men and women who desire it without compromising the safety and identity of the volunteers.

    If you would like to find out more about becoming involved in Parkside's Prison Ministry, click on the "About" tab above or contact Jacque at or 440-708-2109.
