One of the outcomes of The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) is the unique way it brings key leaders from the community together to solve local issues and foster transformation. Not only does this happen locally within cities where the GLS is held, but we also see this happen on a national level.
The more local key leaders can collaborate, the more successful transformation initiatives become.
One of our strategies for growing the GLS internationally is to hold regional meetings around the world, gathering GLS champions and leaders from various countries within a region to strategize on the marketing, growth and programming initiatives of the GLS. These meetings result in greater unity and vision around a common goal—to grow the GLS in order to help Christians grow their leadership to maximize Kingdom impact.
As we head into the 2018 Summit season, we’ve held these meetings in Europe, parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America as well.
To give you a small taste of what those meetings are like, here is a short clip of Samuel Karthak from Kathmandu, Nepal, sharing how a gathering of more than 80 churches united at a single Summit site location impacted the local police.
[…] We were there [at the Summit site location] a day earlier to prepare. While we were at the small city center in the marketplace, we met two policemen. […] When they saw the new faces, they came and asked us why we were there. We told them that we are having a GLS and we asked them to come tomorrow [to the event]. [They came] and they were there while we were having the GLS session. They were asking for all the information. They were so surprised that more than 80 churches came together. […] They said, ‘How come they come in one place? Because this has never happened before.’ […] The GLS can bring unity in God’s kingdom!
If you pray, partner or financially support the GLS globally, you are a part of uniting leaders who are bringing transformation to their communities! Thank you!
