The Global Leadership Summit reaches Christian leaders in more than 128 countries, including countries where Christianity is only known and practiced by a very small percentage of the population. It’s in these countries, like Thailand, where a resource like the GLS is being used as the primary tool to build momentum, strengthening and encouraging church leaders to bring the Gospel to the nation.
Anuparp Wichitnantana, pastor and country coordinator for the GLS in Thailand, has a vision so grand, it may change his entire country. Attending the GLS not only sparked this vision, but gives him and his colleagues the training they need to make it a reality.
“Thailand is a Buddhist country, and less than one percent of the population are Christians,” Anuparp explains.
“My vision is to see 10 percent of the population become Christian and to know the Lord in the next 10 years.”
Anuparp sees the GLS as the primary tool used to see this vision become a reality by uniting more than 600 key leaders and Christian influencers across the country who strategize together to see this vision grow. “Through the GLS, we have time to gather together to talk, plan, strategize and cast a vision about the nation,” says Anuparp. “We see unity, and people feel like we can do it. The GLS really opened up this platform. And God is using the GLS to change the nation!”
When leaders get better, everyone wins.
“God always whispers to me when I attend the Summit,” says Anuparp. “I always come away with powerful, practical and life changing ideas and concepts. For example – Everyone wins when leaders gets better.
“I like this statement, because it really impacts my personal life. As a leader, I need to keep developing myself and helping others grow in their own leadership. If I grow, I can help others grow. If the leaders get better, the whole church will get better.
“The GLS opened up opportunities for me to coach and mentor personally many leaders in other organizations and churches. God is using me to lead the national leadership development track in Thailand, and has given me the platform and tools to help pastors and leaders across the country.”
Thank you for supporting the GLS in Thailand
“On behalf of the Thai people, pastors and leaders, we would like to thank you so much for supporting the GLS so that we can have the GLS in Thailand. We need the Gospel, and we need a lot of help, especially in terms of leadership development.
“Most of our people do not speak English, so we have very limited Christian leadership resources. But the GLS has been translated into Thai and now we have the chance to help many pastors and leaders in our country. So if we can help Christian leaders get better, the church will win, and the Thai people will win with the Gospel.
“Thanks so much for helping us. Please continue to support the GLS in Thailand.”
