2019 Support Raising Leaders Conference

October 15-18, 2019

Scottsdale Plaza Resort

7200 N. Scottsdale Road

Scottsdale, AZ 85253

For the glory of God, we are mobilizing people and resources to fulfill His Great Commission. Together, we are championing biblical and relational support raising. Together, we are mobilizing more prayer, more partners, and more praise for our Savior.

Every time a ministry worker invites a brother or sister in Christ to partner with them, they bring the collaboration, co-dependency, and fellowship that God desires. Every Christian in every country of the world deserves the privilege of being invited to invest in the ministry efforts of those being called to serve from their community.
