Handing Over the Keys
Impact Summit is an annual conference at Sugar Grove Church designed to equip Christ followers for impacting others for God’s Kingdom through their everyday relationships. This conference involves encouragement and teaching from high capacity ministry & community leaders, as well as practical training for incorporating ministry into your everyday life.
It’s a great opportunity for the average Christ follower or your church ministry team/volunteers to experience the training of a large conference without the hefty price-tag or week-long investment.
This year theme, “Passing along the keys for leadership,” will focus on increasing your effectiveness by passing along roles & responsibilities to empower others.
