In this video, Bill Hybels, Gary Schwammlein and Tom De Vries talk about why The Global Leadership Summit exists.
In my meetings with Christian leaders around the world, I have seen the difference your support is having by increasing access to The Global Leadership Summit. Because of you, we are on track to impact more than 400,000 leaders in 128 countries this year.
The challenges in our world are great–natural disasters, corruption, injustice, poverty, spiritual indifference, and more. These are ongoing battles, and our world desperately needs courageous leaders to respond and declare a better way. Every Christ-follower, no matter who they are or where they serve, needs to expand their influence.
Leadership Changes Everything
You and I know the power of fired-up, Christ-centered leaders. Through the GLS, we have a solution to one of our world’s greatest needs – Christ-centered leadership. Since the GLS is trending to encourage and equip 500,000 leaders annually by 2020, we need your continued support and prayer. This year, above and beyond our annual budget, three areas of future growth opportunity have come into focus, which we believe are critical to expanding the cause:
- Aim Higher to scale up this leadership model here in the U.S. and impact our country at a time when it needs Godly leadership most, expanding to reach more language groups and under-resourced communities.
- Dig Deeper to build momentum and expand Summit impact with year-round leadership development–leveraging leadership tools for prisons, youth, business, government and education sectors.
- Reach Farther to encourage and equip indigenous leaders to become heroes in their local churches and communities, offering international event subsidies in under-resourced regions, expanding the GLS model within growing regions–translating the event and resources into more languages, as well as supplying equipment and crisis funds.
I believe in this cause to my core. Your continued partnership is a critical part of its success. Leadership changes everything–including you. Are you in?
