What is The Global Leadership Summit?

Summit is a two-day, world-class leadership event.  It's telecast LIVE from Willow Creek's campus (near Chicago) every August.  This event is crafted to infuse vision, skill development and inspiration for the sake of local church transformation.

  • Experienced by more than 170,000 leaders around the world
  • Representing more than 14,000 churches
  • In 92 countries
  • Translated into 42 languages

Effective leaders are the agents of transformation. They call out what's wrong, set goals, launch initiatives, motivate, challenge, and move people to get on the solution side of solving our worst problems. Pastors, teachers, business leaders, law enforcement officials, politicians, musicians, athletes, and others are answering the call and choosing to lead where they are to make a lasting difference.  Leaders are also learners - they must invest in their leadership quotient because their leadership matters.

Far more than an annual training event, The Global Leadership Summit has become a galvanizing event in this worldwide leadership movement. Leaders representing an amazing diversity of race, cultures, ethnicities, languages, and denominations are coming together to give themselves to redeem and restore this broken world.  If you're ready to register - skip down below.
