OUR Local MISSION PARTNERS

BACK2BACK Ministries

Back2Back Cincinnati exists to love and care for orphans and impoverished children, by meeting their physical, spiritual, educational, social, and emotional needs so that they might overcome their life circumstances and break free from the cycle of generational poverty. Back2Back partners with other organizations in the city to provide tutoring, mentoring, coaching, and other programming for children and teens. Back2Back also partners with organizations to provide trauma informed care training for staff and volunteers.

CIY (CHRIST IN YOUTH)

CIY’s mission is to call youth to Christ and into a life of Kingdom work through His Church. They do this by providing events that lead to conversations that lead to transformed lives that lead to committed lives of service. CIY hosts various retreats, events, and outreach opportunities each year that help our youth to meet Jesus Christ and to learn how to develop lives of faith and service.

CHRISTIAN VILLAGE COMMUNITIES

CVC’s mission is to guide older adults to joyful and purposeful life experiences in a faith-filled community. At Parkside we value all our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, regardless of their ages and circumstances, and so we believe it is our responsibility to assist those who are older and have moved into a new stage of life. CVC fulfills an important role in helping our retirees with their physical and spiritual needs.

TRANSFORMING JAIL MINISTRIES

Parkside partners with Transforming Jail Ministries to take God’s message of hope to those incarcerated in our local jails. TJM follows God’s lead by being present, planting seeds, and fully expecting that it’s the small things, delivered with great love, that will make the difference. Volunteers from Parkside work with TJM to conduct worship services in our local correctional facilities.

LIFE FORWARD PREGNANCY CARE OF CINCINNATI

Life Forward helps women and their families make life-affirming decisions through God’s love. They provide consultations, pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, referrals to community services, and education and support at three locations around Cincinnati. Parkside has been a long-time supporter and partner with this important ministry to mothers and their families.

NATIONAL NETWORK OF YOUTH MINISTRIES

We partner with NNYM, who works to unite and equip Christ-followers in various communities throughout the nation through youth leader networks in order to share the gospel and advance Christ’s ministry to every teenager. Their vision is to create more and more networks of youth leaders in every community who can become more effective in helping teenagers become lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.

THE LORD'S GYM MINISTRIES

The Lord’s Gym desires to see transformed lives reproducing more transformed lives. They do this by providing a host of services and programs to the urban areas of Greater Cincinnati such as daily Bible studies, food and clothing to the needy, and counseling and other services to those who are caught up in unhealthy lifestyle choices. In addition, they seek to help rescue those trapped in human trafficking, getting them off the streets and into a relationship with Jesus Christ.

WOODLAND LAKES CHRISTIAN CAMP & RETREAT CENTER

Parkside has been sending our youth to the Woodland Lakes Christian Camp and Retreat Center for many years. The camp has been used by God to help area churches reach their youth and families with the good news about salvation as well as providing a wonderful place for people to become better connected to God and to others. Parkside is blessed to have such a great resource so close and we are honored to be able to support the camp financially as well.
