I want to thank you guys for a great Iron Sharpens Iron conference that I attended in Portsmouth this past April. It was my fourth in a row and I was not disappointed. Keep up the good work!! 

~ Bob Giroux 

Thanks so much for a great conference on Saturday. Thanks also for the special encouragement you gave us in recognizing our church. The guys were walking tall into church on Sunday morning as they answered their wives’ question about what the trophy on the welcome desk was for. Thanks for your tremendous ministry which is blessing our guys (and me!) in so many ways. Keep it up! Go team!

I was invited to the Hartford Iron Sharpens Iron by my neighbor and I was amazed.  I was not used to this type of praise and open worship.  Even though somewhat a stranger to this group I came with and to the Iron Sharpens Iron ministry, I felt led and easy about selecting and attending a session that addressed my age group and needs.  I was hungry for a message and transformation, and here I was fed.
