What is Sharper!

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. 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.
