Basics Conference Volunteers

What began nearly 20 years ago with around 100 pastors is now a conference that brings over 1,500 men from all over the world to Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and Parkside Church. Basics is a three-day conference for pastors and Christian workers with the goal to refresh and encourage men amid the challenges of full-time ministry, and equip them to do the basics of Christian ministry well. After a two-year hiatus, Basics is back this year, May 2-4.

Parkside Hospitality
When asked what draws the men to this specific conference, they list three things: 1. the solid biblical preaching; 2. the camaraderie of other men in ministry; and 3. the hospitality they receive from the Parkside Church family. Whether you’ve prayed, served food, set up rooms, or hosted attendees, your help in years past has made our church a welcoming place to the thousands of pastors who have attended Basics. 

4 Ways to Serve
If you'd like to be involved with Basics 2022, we have a number of options:

  1. Host Pastors in Your Home: Open your home to one or more pastors and provide overnight lodging during the conference.
  2. Serve Meal(s): Set and clear tables, serve food at the buffet stations, and fill drinks. Choose one or more meal shifts.
  3. Commit to Praying: Receive a weekly email prayer guide with specific prayer requests leading up to and throughout the conference.
