The Southwest Ohio Leaders Conference is a one-day conference that exists to equip pastors and leaders within the church to overcome the unique obstacles and challenges of ministry leadership in the 21st century.  Join us as we worship together in unity, hear from kingdom-minded leaders from around the country, and collaborate with local pastors and ministry leaders familiar with the unique nuances of ministry in Southwest Ohio.

Leader’s Don’t Lead Alone.

Leaders often lament that it’s lonely at the top — but is it supposed to be?

Long before modern research unveiled the detrimental effects of loneliness, the Proverbs warned of the perils of leadership isolation. Pride is the constant companion of a leader in isolation, while wisdom is found in an abundance of counselors.  In our conflict-ridden, tech-enabled world, the temptation to lead alone is ever-present, but we were called to lead together. More than that, we’re called to raise up the next generation of Kingdom leaders, equipping them for the work of ministry with the gospel of Jesus.

Join us on September 8th, 2022 from 9 AM – 4 PM, as we hear from nationally known speakers who will equip and encourage you and your team as faithful leaders in the church. We would encourage you to bring your ministry leaders (Student leaders, Children’s leaders, Worship leaders, future leaders, and other key leaders) with you as you work to raise up ministry leaders within your church!
