Christian leaders are looking for the best tools and practices to help them lead from their strengths and empower others to do the same. Until now, leaders have not had a simple way to capture and release these unique strengths. Once these strengths have been identified, leaders then have a way to recalibrate their priorities setting themselves up for a fuller and more impactful life.

 

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 concepts needed to guide you, and those you lead, through the transformational messages of God's divine design for differences.

 

The beautiful Desert Foothills Lutheran Church will play host to our National Conference this year. Enjoy the seclusion of a private setting as you hear from today's experts and hone your skills on the transformational strengths and differences message.

 

Ministry Insights and Five Capitals has designed this unique conference for you. You will be in an intimate setting for four days with best selling authors Rodney Cox (Founder Ministry Insights) and Brandon Schaefer (Founder Five Capitals) learning the latest updates and effective techniques for this life changing message.

 

Bring your family and extend your trip into a vacation that will build memories and grow your most important relationships. Scottsdale is right in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. We're only minutes from hiking and bike riding; only 1.5 Hours from Sedona, and four hours from the Grand Canyon.
