Missional Partners

Park Street partners with a group of organizations throughout the year as we understand that our church is just a piece of a much larger story of what Jesus is doing in the world.

These partnerships are more than just one-time donations to an organization, but ongoing relationships where we seek each other's mutual good and success.

Our partners are overseen by our Missional Partners Team consisting of volunteers, staff members, and leadership board representation. Current team members include: Val Hall, Laura Kollar, Dick Winfield, Glenn Black, Doug Cooper, Karen Weidenhamer, and Gordon Swain.

Partnerships are multi-year commitments for Park Street, with some of these relationships dating back many decades.

Do you know of an organization with whom we may consider a partnership? We'd love to hear about your connections and what Jesus is doing in your life. Reach out to office@parkstreetbrethren.org and we will get you more information about this ministry.

PSBC's current missional partners are:

 

Isaiah Project

Partnering with Ashland University and the Office of Christian Ministry, Park Street has helped offset the cost of mission trips for hundreds of students to be able to experience first hand the kingdom around the world. The largest barrier to students experiencing one of these trips is finances and our support helps keep these trips extremely affordable for students to allow Jesus to work through them.

 

Nimi on the Fly

Based out of Canton, OH, Nimi on the Fly is a collaborative ministry that has connected individuals with neighborhood kids as they learn the art and sport of fly fishing...right in their back yard. For many kids who are left to pass time on their own in the community, this opportunity to interact with adults and learn a new sustainable sport has had a huge impact. Through our partnership, we've helped restock a river with fish, purchase equipment, and provide classes for volunteers and students to learn together.

 

 

Coffee Growing Community

An unforeseen partnership with a village in Mexico led Park Street members into a now decade-long relationship with the people of Chicontla, Mexico - as we work together to preserve the history of the region while helping them provide sustainable farming, schooling, and living. Park Street has partnered with Coffee Growing Community to build a school and community center, replant thousands of coffee plants, and plant new vanilla and cinnamon plants. Individuals, groups, and even our youth, have taken regular trips to Mexico to nurture this relationship and love this community.

 

Riverside Christian School

Located in Lost Creek, KY, Riverside Christian School is a private school that has been operated in partnership with the Brethren Church for many years. Park Street has been blessed to send several teachers and administrators to help run the school, loving the students and community. We regularly provide financial assistance, technology upgrades, and encouragement to this ministry. 

 

 

Isaiah House

Coming out of Isaiah Project trips, a new ministry was birthed years ago in South Africa that seeks to love youth, take care of women, and share the truth, love and peace of Jesus. Park Street has supported this ministry by helping offset the cost of local youth leaders and most recently helped build a community center for groups to gather, educate, and teach craft skills to those seeking labor jobs.
