Iron on Iron 2019: Guest Speakers
Every year, we’re excited to invite experienced guest speakers from our various ministry partners. Our purpose and prayer for Iron on Iron is to equip student pastors to jump into a new season of ministry with the tools, Scriptural training, and practical experience needed to be faithful in this generation.
