Meet the Pastors!

Pastors are to lead in shepherding. They will oversee the church through preaching, teaching, prayer, and vision. Our pastors serve as a team of both paid and unpaid men. 

  • Jared Alsdorf

    Lay Pastor

    Jared is a man outstanding in his field, literally. He is an agronomist who has a love for corn and skid-steers. When not out getting muddy in a field, he is with his wife Leah and their four kids. He has a love for people and serves as a lay pastor who oversees member care. Jared also teaches a Sunday School class. His love for the Bible is evident in every conversation, as is his love for missions work in Germany. 

    Email Pastor Jared.

  • Scott Bradley

    Lay Pastor

    Dr. Scott grew up in this church and is a graduate of Bethesda Christian Schools, where he fell in love with his wife Joanna. He and Joanna have three kids. Scott is a research chemist and a chemistry teacher at BCS. While Scott really adds to the chemistry of the pastoral team, the other pastors rarely understand what he is talking about when he begins to discuss atoms, neutrons, and calculus equations. He serves as a lay pastor who oversees member care and he enjoys teaching people the doctrines of Scripture. 

    Email Pastor Scott.

  • Kasey Clark

    Discipleship Pastor

    Kasey is a graduate of Crossroads Bible College (now College of Biblical Studies, Indianapolis) and Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte. He and his wife Emily have 2 awesome kids. Kasey loves cheering for all Indianapolis sports teams, though his passion is basketball. When he’s not cheering for the Pacers or Hoosiers, he’s probably itching to play some pick-up ball. Along with basketball, he loves coffee, sneakers, and books. And his family loves having people over for games, fires, and food.

He and his wife Emily have three daughters. Prior to joining the pastoral staff at Parkside, he taught high school Bible for 5 years.

  • Len Overton

    Len has been a member of the church for over 60 years having served with his late wife, Margo, in various ministries during that time. Currently, he teaches an adult Sunday School class in addition to member care ministry.
