Leadership Summit 2022

The River Conference’s Leadership Summit 2022

This year’s Summit focused on Fueling the Fire. The Keynote speaker was Anthony Headley. Tony is a Psychologist, Professor at Asbury Theological Seminary, Author, and Speaker. We were excited to have him join us.

With the stresses of ministry, compounded by the last couple of years, we realized that pastors and church leaders have been stretched to their limits. Leadership Summit 2022 provided practical solutions to help keep the Holy Spirit alive and well in you and your ministry.
