In an undisclosed city in Northern Nigeria, where 90 percent of the region is Muslim, a small minority of Christians heard about The Global Leadership Summit, and were hungry for the training and encouragement.
This city has not experienced any sort of leadership training in the area for 17 years, but in 2017, we held the first ever Summit event for 105 local leaders.
The local pastor expressed how valuable it was for the local Christian community. For those who were able to attend, the feedback was heartwarming, and reiterates the need to encourage Christian leaders leading and living under difficult circumstances.
Be encouraged by the attendees’ comments:
