Sharpening Iron

No ministry or individual should stand alone. In order to become better, there is a mutual benefit in helping others via training, mentorship and servant leadership. This year’s conference will offer tools and techniques to help leaders or aspiring leaders become even sharper in the areas of ministry and business.


This year we’re offering over 30 workshops covering a range of topics: digital, church operations, discipleship, congregational care and much more. As a participant, you’ll have the option to move beyond the tracks and select whatever workshop piques your interest.  This is your opportunity to ask questions directly to the FBCG subject matter experts.
