As Iron Sharpens Iron
In an ever-changing environment today’s leaders must commit to excellence in our various leadership roles, sharpening their skills as leaders. Proverbs 27:17 tells us, “As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend.”
“As Iron Sharpens Iron” (AISI), the BCM/D’s new leadership series, premiered in October. The Leadership Event with Mike Huckabee attracted 350 ministry and lay leaders from across Maryland and Delaware. The conference featured three keynote speakers, who spoke on the major principles of leadership, specifically ethics, integrity, and character.
Mike Huckabee: Former Arkansas Governor and host of “Huckabee” on the Fox News Channel
Rod Hairston: Chaplain for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens
Andy Westmoreland: President of Samford University
We Had Questions, They Had Answers
During the question and answer period after each speaker’s presentation, attendees asked tough, real-life questions on leadership, and our keynoters gave honest, down-to-earth answers.
Between speakers, The Church at Severn Run praise team provided invigorating praise and worship. Gov. Mike Huckabee even joined in, rockin’ the bass during several worship songs.
Participants also received a pre-autographed copy of Gov. Mike Huckabee’s soon-to-be released book, “A Simple Christmas.” Huckabee personalized each book (or whatever else was on hand for him to sign) and posed for pictures with everyone who asked.
What Everyone is Saying…
So far the feedback has been phenomenal. Participants are emailing, Twittering, Facebooking, and calling us because they want to know about the next AISI event. Here’s some of the comments we’ve gotten so far…
First class all the way guys. Excellent conference!
I thought it was a great event and I enjoyed all the speakers. As a Women’s Missionary Union leader I found it helpful and uplifting. Keep them coming!
It was excellent!
You can even listen to what conference attendee Barbara Williams had to say: Listen now!
