  • Pastoral Residents Class of 2019-2020

    Parkside Church’s Pastoral Resident Class of 2019-2020

    “They keep asking me about games to play,” said Hunter. “What else is there other than Dodge Ball?” Robby and Kolby laughed knowing that they all have to take a turn with one of the most challenging demographics in all of church life - Middle Schoolers.

    For Parkside’s pastoral residents, Hunter Hanson, Robby Lacey, and Kolby Thomas, no detail is too small to consider when discerning the call to pastoral ministry.

    All kidding aside, these three men have embarked on a year-long exploration to learn the day-to-day complexities of life as a pastor. Each resident will spend time shadowing members of Parkside’s pastoral team and will get hands-on experience such as teaching large groups, observing one-on-one counseling sessions, assisting with hospital and benevolence visits, and attending youth events and retreats. Throughout the year, they will get an up close and personal look at church life from the point of view of the pastor.

  • Stepping Out in Faith

    For two young mothers from Mongolia, a once-in-a-lifetime journey to Cleveland, Ohio, meant that their young children would receive life-saving heart surgery in the United States through the Children’s Heart Project, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse.

  • Building Connections Through English and Coffee

    Forty-two hours of travel isn’t the most ideal way to begin a ten-day long missions trip. With three plane rides and a 12-hour layover in another European country in their sights, the team set off. Comprised of various ages, occupations, and stages of life, they were brought together by one common goal: the desire to make Christ known in a country that desperately needed Him.

     The team of young adults were headed to Skopje (SKOP-ee-ya), Macedonia, to teach English to the people there. Only three had experienced teaching a class before, and one of those was a pastor! The anticipation of what was to come brought many worries and questions from the rest. What would teaching the class look like? Would anyone even be willing to meet with them? Would they be able to share the gospel, and how would they do it?
