Pastors, staff and ministry leaders gathered to sharpen their ministry skills at Sharper! conferences throughout the Sunshine State today.

Attendees heard from great speakers like pastor Ted Traylor of Olive Baptist Church, Tommy Green, executive director-treasurer of the Florida Baptist Convention, pastor Herb Reavis, Jr. of North Jacksonville Baptist Church and pastor Willy Rice of Calvary Church among many others.

Social media platforms were ablaze with tweets, quotes and photos of what was happening.

Here are the highlights:

The Freedom Church team in Vero Beach shared a meal and posted about their excitement pre-Sharper!

At Olive Baptist Church, Ted Traylor delivered words of encouragement to pastors and lay leaders.

At Thomasville Road Baptist Church, Curtis Clark delivered encouragement and wisdom to the group.

There was an abundance of quotable moments…

…and Instagram-worthy shots!

As the day wound down and everyone headed home, excitement was still high!


Thanks to all who came and we look forward to seeing everyone else on March 1st!
