The Global Leadership Summit is the Premier Event of Willow Creek Association
The Global Leadership Summit is a two-day event that is telecast LIVE from Willow’s campus near Chicago every August to more than 500 locations in North America. Throughout the fall, Summit events take place in an additional 600+ cities, 128 countries—translated into 59 languages.
We’re convinced that leadership is critical to church and organization 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.

Together, we have the privilege of serving and encouraging each other to be the church, the hope of the world. Please continue to pray for the Global Leadership Summit throughout the fall. As we have seen, the lasting impact affects hundreds of thousands of leaders and their communities. We invite you to follow the GLS events here on this site and be encouraged by the stories.
