Global Leadership Summit
The Christian Employee Resource Group leadership team from my workplace is planning to attend The Global Leadership Summit at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago August 5-6. The two-day conference will feature prominent leaders such as Jack Welch, Jim Collins, and Tony Dungy.
Bill Hybels, founder and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, predicts, “God is going to rock the summit.” He says the interview with Jack Welch is the finest interview the summit has ever offered.” See a special message from Bill here.
From the website: Bill Hybels is the founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois, and the chairman of the board for Willow Creek Association. He convened The Global Leadership Summit in 1995, following a God-given prompting to help raise and develop the spiritual gift of leadership for the local church. Both visionary and passionate about seeing every local church reach its full God-given potential, he speaks around the world on strategic issues related to leadership, evangelism, and church growth. An exceptional communicator, he is a best-selling author of more than 20 books, including the upcoming release, The Power of a Whisper: Hearing God and Having the Guts to Respond.
This year is the fifteenth summit at Willow Creek and seven thousand participants are expected to attend in person. The summit is sold out and we are told there are over three hundred people on the waitlist. The summit will be telecast to hundreds of sites around the world for those that are not able to travel to Chicago.
