Global Leadership Summit

WHY WE DO THE SUMMIT

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 and 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. 

A Little Bit of History...

Founded in 1992, Willow Creek Association (WCA) is a not-for-profit Christian organization that exists to maximize the transformative power of the local church. Our vision is to see every local church reach its full redemptive potential—becoming an unbridled conduit for the transforming power of Jesus Christ. In short, we provide vision, inspiration, connection, tools, training, resources, and venues for church leaders like you to learn from and support one another.

Serving Leaders Worldwide...

We're privileged to serve alongside 7,000 Member Churches representing more than 90 denominations and training leaders in 85 countries. Over the course of a year 15,000 churches engage with our vision, training, and resources.
