Bring the Summit to 100+ Prisons

With Your Gift on #GivingTuesday

On December 3rd, your #GivingTuesday donation will be used to expand The Global Leadership Summit into 100+ prisons in 2020, inspiring hearts and minds to ignite transformation in the lives of those who are incarcerated, their families and their communities.

They are not forgotten. They have value.

We’re so grateful for the way God is inspiring hearts and minds to ignite transformation in communities across the world through The Global Leadership Summit, including places we never thought possible.

Every week since the GLS19 in August, we’ve received letters from those who are incarcerated pouring out their hearts in gratitude, sharing the impact The Global Leadership Summit has made in their life, in some cases merely because the GLS made them feel they are not forgotten–they realize they still have value to bring to the table.

Stopping the cycle of incarceration.

“I now realize that while I will never get the chance to fully make up for the crimes to my victims, their families or my ex-wife and our children, I do have the opportunity to help make sure that it never happens again. I have the opportunity to share my story and influence men to live a pro-social life; to do what is right, regardless of the cost. I’m using this opportunity to step into my role as a leader and stop the cycle of incarceration in other men’s families. I’m going to use the information from the Summit and the passion that was reignited within me to change lives and help these men pass those changes down to their children.” – Zac

Inspired to see my fellow inmates transformed.

“I’m an inmate at JHCC in Lexington, Oklahoma, and I’ve just completed my third year of attending the GLS in this facility. Thank you so very much for offering this to so many around the world. We strive to transform ourselves, to be better, to realize that grander vision for ourselves, for our loved ones and for society. We do not see prison as an end all to our lives. We work every minute of every day to be better than our past, better than our circumstances.” – Bill

Inspired to give my life to Christ.

“How do I say thank you to our Lord and to The Global Leadership Summit other than to just say thank you? I don’t have the financial means to donate to the Summit right now. But from the inspiration of all the speakers and being moved by the Holy Spirit, I give my life completely to Christ. Thank you for your commitment, love and compassion and for not forgetting those of us who are in prison. We have influence here, with our families and in the world when we join it again.” – Sydney

The Summit Inspires Inmates to Give Back

In 2019, Southeast Correctional Center in Missouri hosted a Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack in partnership with La Croix UMC. The Global Leadership Network is so proud to partner with churches like La Croix (the producers of this video) who host the Summit at their church, and have a heartbeat for their local prison.

Your Giving Impact

In 2019, the support of volunteers and donors from the Summit audience allowed the Summit to be broadcast to 82 prisons in 24 states, reaching more than 7,000 incarcerated people! Of those prisons, 19 were maximum security, and 11 were women’s prisons. What if we could expand the Summit into 100+ prisons in 2020?! Will you help us get there this #GivingTuesday?
