“The Sharpening” e-newsletter
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17)
We are glad that you have taken a moment to read the Best of the Sharpening, a quarterly newsletter by and for ministers working with adults 55 plus. Let me share with you a bit more about the organization. Metro 55+ is a group of full-time ministers, serving in larger Southern Baptist Churches across the convention, that have the privilege of leading ministries to, thru, and with adults 55 and up. Each year, members benefit from an annual spring conference where networking, equipping, and encouragement take place. This conference provides a great opportunity to learn from one another and gain valuable ministry insights. In addition to the annual meeting, group members benefit from quarterly Zoom meetings where ministry hot topics are discussed and through the quarterly newsletter “The Sharpening.” You will find more information about the membership requirements (below).
