Join Thousands of Leaders from Across the Country
The fourth annual America’s Best Hope conference is co-produced by EDGE Mentoring and Truth at Work. This leadership event will feature inspiring industry CEOs, relevant entertainment figures and thought leaders from around the country.
This event is all about cultivating godly leaders in the marketplace – men and women hungry to grow and lead spiritually, professionally and personally – and who are ready to make a difference in the world. The power house lineup of conference speakers will address seven qualities of godly leadership- Christ Centered, Character, Commitment, Courage, Competency, Catalyst, and Compassion.
Join us in equipping a generation of godly leaders in transforming the marketplace. The significance of these messages will have a ripple effect across the country to thousands of current and future leaders. With limited seating, we anticipate this year’s conference WILL sell out!
A catalytic event designed to launch a national mentoring movement to equip a generation of godly leaders in the marketplace.
Featuring a line-up of high impact and high profile speakers, from a wide variety of backgrounds (business, church, education, sports, etc.), this event will draw leaders from a variety of fields. Those leaders will come together to be challenged, catalyzed, and equipped to mentor emerging leaders toward spiritual, personal and professional growth.
Men and women of God in the marketplace have an enormous platform to influence their peers and colleagues toward a Gospel-centered life. Following the words of II Timothy 2:2, “and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
We believe America’s Best Hope is a nation of godly leaders building and equipping other godly leaders.
1. Gather over 2,000 leaders together to be challenged, catalyzed and equipped.
2. Provide the needed tools and resources for the holistic mentoring to occur.
3. Serve as a catalytic event to scale Truth At Work’s EDGE Mentoring program

EDGE Mentoring is a virtual mentoring network that brings together 4 to 6 high capacity, young, and emerging leaders who have a hunger to grow personally, professionally and spiritually.

Each EDGE group has a curriculum guide and model to help them grow personally, professionally, and spiritually.
During the virtual meetings, participants process relevant issues in their personal, professional, and spiritual lives. A wide variety of resources and tools are a part of the model including original content, articles, books, and special guest speakers.
