Day 1 and 2 Target

Day 3 and 4 Target

Christian leaders are looking for the best tools and practices to help them lead from their strengths and empower others to do the same. The problem is, until now, leaders have not had a simple way to capture these unique strengths in a meaningful way and apply them.

 

A lifetime of experiences and study have brought Ministry Insights to the forefront of the growing strengths movement.

 

This conference will equip you with a biblical foundation, as well as the latest tools and updates, needed to guide people through the transformational messages of God's divine design for differences.

 

The beautiful Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, will play host to our National Conference. Enjoy the seclusion of a private resort as you hear from today's experts and hone your skills on the transformational strengths and differences message.

 

Ministry Insights has designed this unique conference for you. You will be in an intimate setting for two to four days with best selling authors Rodney Cox (Founder Ministry Insights), Don Ankenbrandt (Founder Alliance Ministries), Russ Olmon (Founder Ministry Advantage) and Frank Johnson (Chick-fil-A) learning the latest updates and effective techniques for this life changing message.

 

Discover new content, such as The Irrefutable Law of Differences, which moves every relationship toward isolation or intimacy. This one of many new tools that will help you teach God's plan for differences like never before. Take home a proven process for matching candidates to jobs that insures hiring individuals who have natural strength to do the job.
