Basics is a conference hosted by Parkside Church for men who serve as pastors and Christian workers. The conference aims to encourage and equip pastors to do the basics of Christian ministry well. 

Our Basics conference takes place in May each year. For information about our next conference, or if you are a pastor looking to learn more or register for Basics, please visit the conference website at: >


Volunteers Needed

Every year, Parkside Church members and attenders come together to serve the 1500+ men who attend the Basics Conference. Opportunities to serve vary from praying, to serving food, to opening your home.

Volunteer registration opens in late February/early March and continues until all spots are filled.
