Parkside Church is a growing, vibrant church of 450 that is looking to take our church to the next level of ministry. We are loosely affiliated with the Conservative Baptists and Converge (formerly BGC). With our new facilities (built 5 years ago) and our newly developed land ( under construction), we are poised to reach into our community and help those who are far from God take their next steps toward him. Therefore, we are now actively looking for a pastoral leader who will join our exciting team and EQUIP families and CONNECT our church like never before.

A quiet, safe place in northern Arizona to raise your children, with a small town atmosphere, a friendly relaxed, no-pressure way of life where practically everyone knows each other. Additionally, we have wide-open spaces, the Verde river, a mild 4-season climate and panoramic views from the vistas above our valley.

To create an IRRESISTIBLE church that PASSIONATELY pursues LIFECHANGE!


We gather together weekly to CELEBRATE God’s active involvement in our lives and in our church family; thanking Him for His undeserving grace and mercy!

CONNECT Together
We exist to CONNECT and live in close-knit, loving community which builds the body of Christ by encouraging the sharing of life, helping to meet the needs within each one of us, and stimulating personal growth.

GIVE Generously
Our life in Christ is only fully realized as we learn to reflect the generosity of God by leveraging all of our resources to minister to other people, advance His Kingdom, and turn the world upside down.

GO Influence
We love people enough to reach out to those who have no relationship with Jesus by INVESTING in their lives and INVITING them to attend Parkside so that they will hear and understand what it means to be a Christ follower.
