Ever since the year 2000, I have attended the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit most years, and have regretted the years I had to miss this annual conference. I’ve always participated at one of their satellite sites near my residency. These last eleven years in Nashville means that People’s Church in Franklin has been the host site by which I have experienced this wonderful event. The Global Leadership Summit is one of the highlights of my year. This event is like fuel to my leadership passion tank.
This year is no exception, as my wife Beth, CIL Operations Pastor Deborah Jackson, and myself will be filling our minds and hearts with great leadership insights from thought-provoking speakers. These presenters come from both the church and corporate world, which brings quite a nice balance of the Lord’s wisdom.
The event occurs today and tomorrow, and though it originates from Chicago, it will occur literally around the globe through simulcast technology.
Pray that God will use this time for both the CIL team, and the tens of thousands of leaders around the world who will be experiencing this intellectual and spiritual event. As the founder WCA founder Bill Hybel often says, “When a leader gets better, everybody wins.” There are a lot of wins ahead of us!
