SUNDAYS IN-PERSON and Online: 9 & 11AM

Watch Parkview online at 9AM and 11AM

Meet our Local and Global Partners

Parkview has a history of coming alongside individuals and organizations who feel God’s call to reach people with the Gospel.

Throughout Scripture, we see how God’s heart has always been for all the nations to respond to His grace–every tribe, every tongue, every culture. 

It is a privilege and blessing to send ministry partners who engage in ministry around the world, bringing the Good News of Jesus to their communities.

In addition to championing the  diversity of God’s Kingdom in our local congregation in Glen Ellyn, we are fortunate to partner with people and organizations all around the world that are making disciples in the name of Jesus.

Because we understand God has gifted everyone differently and placed unique passions in each of us to serve God, Parkview celebrates those differences while holding to these same principles for each partner:

Core Values of Ministry Partners

We love people and organizations that do great humanitarian work, but our call as a church is unique in that we have access to the true hope of the world! This principle certainly plays out differently in each ministry context, but at the end of the day we want to partner with people who are telling people about Jesus, in addition to meeting tangible needs. 

We believe a true partnership goes beyond financial support. We do our best to create real relationships with our partners in which we learn from each other, pray for each other, strategize together, and meet each other’s needs.

We love partnering with people who are deeply ingrained in local communities and immersed in the culture they serve. 

We believe in empowering and working through local people to bring about holistic and sustainable change in communities.

Greetings,
 
On August 26, 2021, IL Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an Executive Order mandating that masks be worn at all indoor gatherings. Although churches are exempt from the Executive Order, out of respect for governing authorities, Parkview has continued to ask staff, leaders, volunteers, and those attending Sunday gatherings to wear a mask while indoors. We are grateful for our people’s understanding and willingness to do so. The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings. In anticipation of that, on Sunday, February 27th Parkview will return to a “mask optional” policy.

While the mask policy has once again shifted, our commitment to your health and wellbeing has not. We remain dedicated to thoroughly cleaning our public spaces before and after our gatherings. Masks and hand sanitizer are still readily available to those who want them.

Navigating these difficult days has not always been clear or easy. Whatever your perspective on current realities, as fellow Christians, let us allow kindness, grace and compassion characterize our interaction and relationships. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “Let us be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

I look forward to being with you on Sundays.
 
Grace and Peace,
