Lead Where You Are

The Global Leadership Summit exists to transform Christian leaders around the world with an injection of vision, skill development, and inspiration for the sake of the local church.

We’re convinced that leadership is critical to church vitality. A church’s effectiveness in pursuing its God-given mission is largely dependent on the character, devotion and skill of its leadership core—which can be formal or informal, staff or volunteer, clergy or laity.

The influence and impact of the church is felt most fully when Christ-centered leaders are at the forefront of establishing and growing well-led local churches and organizations…key reasons why The Global Leadership Summit exists.

The church is at its best, as God’s love and care inevitably spills out into our neighborhoods, towns and cities through acts of love, justice, mercy, service and restoration.

Through The Global Leadership Summit, you have access to a faculty line-up that brings incredible depth and breadth of talent, perspective, and insight. Gain practical, hands-on wisdom as some of the world’s brightest leaders download their experiences and expertise.

The Global Leadership Summit is designed for pastors, business and community leaders, board members, elders, church staff, ministry leaders, volunteer leaders, students, emerging leaders and those who would like to improve their leadership skills.

We are one of 200+ premier host sites in the US for this simulcast from Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago which brings in world-class speakers who I promise will minister to you at whatever season of life you’re in. I truly believe this could be one of their strongest lineup of speakers in the twelve years we’ve held it here–it should be outstanding. I hope you can take a two-day break from your busy schedule and be refreshed at this premiere event.
