Basics is a conference for men who serve as pastors and Christian workers.

A mix of Bible teaching, breakout sessions, and meals, our conference aims to encourage and equip pastors to do the basics of Christian ministry well (most of the time). Given the unique responsibilities and challenges of life in ministry, we also hope that God might use the conference to refresh pastors and send them back to their home churches renewed for further Gospel work.

Event Details

The conference is held at Parkside Church (7100 Pettibone Rd.) in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Check-in is scheduled to start at 12pm on May 4.


Basics is for men: it is designed for pastors, but is open to missionaries, evangelists, elders, and other Christian workers or those training for such roles. To the extent that we value male friendship, support and camaraderie, we do not encourage wives to attend.
