What happens when 8,000 leaders come together?
By Charles Kelley

Barrington, IL – What happens when 8,000 Christian leaders from 110 nations come together? In short, much needed inspiration, world-class training, productive networking and important future planning.

Each year, Willow Creek’s Global Leadership Summit makes clear that a church’s or ministry’s effectiveness in pursuing its God-given mission is largely dependent on the character, devotion and skill of its leadership. The influence and impact of the church is felt most fully when Christ-centered leaders lead with integrity, skill, purposefulness and passion.

I benefited from truly excellent leadership presentations by Bill Hybels and other top leaders from the worlds of the church, government, business, missions, education and entertainment.

Peteris, Nora and I took notes and reflected on the value of what we learned for ourselves and for what Latvian leaders will need when they come together for the 5th Annual Global Leadership Summit for Latvia in November. We would love to see 1,000 Latvian men and women from many denominations and sectors of society come together to sharpen their skills, deepen their passions and draw closer to their Lord in the process.
