Iron Sharpens Iron (ISI)

The Iron Sharpens Iron (ISI) conference is an annual flagship event organized specifically for pastors, leaders, entrepreneurs and anyone interested in developing leadership skills in leading, managing and supporting an organization towards the achievement of its vision.  The main annual event is typically held in Atlanta GA, USA during the month of July.  However, the ISI conference is held in various locations and countries as logistics allow.


God has given Dr. Frank a mandate to bolster the hearts of the men and women who feed His flock and we believe that nobody understands the pressures of leadership like fellow leaders. We see ISI as a haven of renewal for leaders in the world, where we can come together to experience God’s life-changing power and share insights with like-minded people of God.

If you have been to any of our past conferences or spoken to someone who has, you already know that you can expect an authentic atmosphere of fellowship, cutting edge teaching and spiritual empowerment through prayer and worship.

conference is the flagship event held in various parts of the world to elicit thought and best practice in leadership. 

When we look back over the testimonies of hope and passion restored in the lives of those who have attended past ISI conferences, it motivates us to earnestly seek God to do even more in the lives of those who will be joining us this year. In an age filled with an abundance of church programs and conferences, it is our earnest desire that God will continue to use ISI as a vehicle to minister innovative yet practical wisdom while equipping leaders from all around the world  to make a positive impact in today’s challenging cross-generational environments.
