We believe that our mission (Loving God and loving others in our church, in our community and in our world.) is not just something we do as a result of growing in our relationship with God, but it is also spurs on growth through practice. Thus, using our spiritual gifts and
sharing our faith are key elements to growing in our Christian lives.
It is our hope that everyone who calls Parkview home would serve in at least one area of ministry to grow in relationship with Jesus and connect with other people in our church and community. Below are descriptions of each of the areas of ministry that you can serve in. Let us know how you would like to get involved. Whatever
interests and strengths you have, you can use them to contribute to what’s happening here at Parkview and in our community.
