Optional Breakout Sessions
Making the most of your counseling sessions

When pastors and leaders meet with individuals and couples for counseling, it can often seem overwhelming. What are some of the guiding principles and objectives for pastors and elders as they meet with those under their care? When is it good to refer to someone else for care and counsel? How can pastors practically equip their members for counseling ministry? Jonathan is the pastor of counseling at Parkside.

Addiction: Illness? Disease? Choice? Sin?

Understanding addiction Biblically and how that understanding then shapes our evangelism. Terry is Director of Hope for Glasgow, a ministry born out of The Tron Church that seeks to bring hope to those who are addicted and marginalized to help them rebuild their lives through the hope of the Gospel.

Room: B020-21

What we know (and thought we knew) about church planting

Church planting. Sounds simple enough. Add people, money, a wing and a prayer and presto!, start a church. Not so fast…come and learn with two Parkside church planters about what is making sense and what they’re trying to make sense of in church planting.

Room: A208-210

Scott Kennedy & Matt McAlvey
What we are learning about music ministry

Corporate musical worship is a foundational aspect of Sundays at Parkside. While we by no means have it all figured out, we continue to grow and work together to improve. Join two members of our music team to hear about how we plan services, work across roles, choose songs, rehearse, and think about other artistic, spiritual, and practical elements of music ministry. We look forward to taking your questions and discovering what is working in your churches.
