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 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.
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
Founded in 1992, Willow Creek Association (WCA) is the organization behind The Global Leadership Summit. We serve pioneering pastors and leaders around the world by curating inspirational leadership, intentional skill development and experiences that help local churches thrive.
SERVING LEADERS WORLDWIDE
We're privileged to serve alongside 7,000 Member Churches representing more than 90 denominations and networks training leaders in 90 countries. Over the course of a year 18,000 churches engage with our vision, training, and resources. Many around the world cannot afford the cost of bringing the Summit to their country. A gift to Willow Creek Association can infuse hope, instill skills and change the destiny of an under-resourced church.
