Global Missions


Global Missions

Being on mission for Christ has long been a part of the DNA of our church’s life. Having begun our support of missionaries in 1884, we continue today with our support of 33 active missionaries, 7 of whom are sent out from Parkside. It is our goal to focus our energy and resources on specific geographic priorities to see the Gospel spread through local churches. While we support missionaries in many countries, we feel burdened to particularly focus on The United States, Germany, Brazil, and India. It is our priority to see active participation from Parkside in these areas. One of the greatest opportunities for participation is through our Send Me Journeys. These journeys give the people of Parkside a chance to get their feet on the ground and see what God is doing in the world. For more information about these journeys or any of our missions involvement, please contact Pastor Jared.
