Who We Are

The conference facility was designed with you and your group in mind, whether it be children, youth or adults, with the intention of being accessible, available, and affordable the year round.


Meeting Areas


Parchment Valley Conference Center is situated on over 1200 acres of prime Ohio Valley farmland. At the time it was purchased in 1965, this was the Hyre Dairy Farm of which our administration and dining facility (The William G. Farmar Administration Building) is the only remaining structure and is now lovingly called, "The Barn".


The Greenlee Activities Center provides meeting and activity space for children and youth groups. This building, located next to “The Barn”, is a multi-functional facility including a gym and meeting rooms.
Behind Greenlee is the seasonal pool, open during the warm season to guests.



Santrock Education Center provides adult meeting space featuring some of the latest technologies. Santrock has a lovely sitting room foyer and 2 meeting rooms that can be converted into 4 smaller ones. The rooms are complete with Audio and Visual Equipment.



Hill Hall is available for large group settings. Our largest meeting hall, it can be used for banquets, meetings, large services, etc. There is a built in fireplace and is wired for Audio and Visual use.





Our Dorms were designed for use by children and youth. There are 12 rooms of 10 beds, wooden interior, and one bathroom per room. Downstairs to the Dorms is the bunkhouse: 2 rooms of 16 beds with shared bathroom and shower room.


Our lodges were originally designed to accommodate the needs of adults and recently renovated to reflect the expectations of today's adult. We have 4 lodges each with multiple rooms of double beds, one room of 5 beds (2 bunks), and a bathroom for each room. 2 rooms are handicap accessible, and each lodge has a main sitting room.
