Engaging in the Love of Jesus
Parkside is a family of faith committed to intentionally transforming our community and world with the love of Jesus.
Parkside Church is here to help you engage in the love of Jesus! If you aren't used to church, that might sound a little strange. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that he came to earth as a man, was crucified and rose again three days later. That is pretty significant: it proved He is God, showed that death can be defeated, and that God loves us.
Jesus offered eternal life to everyone who believes in him. When he rose from the dead, we got solid proof that he can make good on that offer. Even more, Jesus said eternal life really starts right away in the quality of life he gives us. This doesn't mean Christians have good luck, or get tons of money or anything like that. Instead, it means that he fulfills the greatest longing of our heart: To know God and live in His love.
In 2020, Richard and Heather joined the team here at Parkside and are excited to see how God will continue to transform the community of Camp Verde and the world.
He is passionate about teaching the Word of God in context and seeing how it merges with our current culture. He loves seeing people connect to Jesus and with the amazing body of believers at Parkside. When he is not at Parkside, he is found spending time with his wife, hiking, running, or riding a bike.
