Our team at Heart Share understands the importance of Christian non-profits. We continue to see non-profits struggle that can not tell their story well. That, in turn, results in lost revenue, revenue that could further ministry. 

There may be other conferences/summits/events that you can attend, but this get-a-way will be small, intimate, intentional time and will also leave time for personal renewal and reflection. We believe investing in you will pay eternal dividends for you, your staff, your partners, and your community that is well worth our partnership. It will also allow time for conversation with peers that will encourage and inspire you as we share ideas and dreams together.
