The distractions and challenges of the day can cause us to lose our focus and forget our purpose. But together we can encourage each other, gain insights, and learn fresh perspectives.

Be renewed, be equipped, be challenged to remain Sharper!

Mission Hill Church wants to INVEST in YOU on Feb 27 during a 1-Day Conference, focused on real, practical ministry opportunities found in every church setting. We want to INVEST in you so that you will be better equipped to INVEST in others. In addition to Paul Purvis, Lead Pastor of Mission Hill Church, this 1 day conference will include Dr. Jay Strack, President and Founder of Student Leadership University, local Tampa Bay Pastors Willy Rice & Evan Burrows, and many more! There will be times of musical worship led by the Mission Hill Church Worship Band, as well as a special Carrabba’s lunch presentation by Open Doors Ministries.

Everyone who registers will receive a bag with supplies for the day, a t-shirt, a devotional, and an entry into the giveaway drawings. The giveaways include a Timothy + Barnabas Conference, Apple MacBook, Apple AirPods, Warren Wiersbe 6-Volume Bible Exposition Commentary Set, and restaurant gift cards!

Allow us to INVEST in you, so you can INVEST in others!
