Ministry Lies That Hurt You and Your Family

What

The

TFP24 Couples Conference?

Ministry is full of challenges. But those challenges often come from lies that we believe about the role, about who we should be, or how we should appear to others.

Join special guests Paul Tripp, Ted Cunningham, and Focus on the Family’s very own Greg Smalley as we address ministry lies that hurt you and your families.

If you are a pastor, join us with your spouse as we seek to encourage pastoral couples with the truth of God‘s word, so you can be refreshed to minister anew.
