The demands of ministry can be grueling. Invest the time in yourself to sharpen your tools as a ministry leader. A day of strengthening as ministry peer groups come together to gain fresh perspectives from fellow ministry leaders.

Sharper Ministry Conference • Be Renewed, Be Equipped!

Staying honed and always ready to be used by God can be difficult as the challenges of the day pull you in multiple directions. The dullness takes its toll – forcing us to work harder to maintain the same level of effectiveness as we minister to our congregation and our staff.
