Share the Summit at No Charge

Transition homes, homeless shelters and more* now have an exclusive opportunity to offer their clients.

Provide those you serve with fresh, actionable and inspiring leadership training to equip and encourage them on their journey of discovering their God-given purpose and power of their influence.

Leadership to Empower Purpose and Influence

The generous support of The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) audience has made it possible for us to provide FREE online streaming of the GLS to the under-resourced audiences that ministries in the U.S. are serving who would otherwise not have access to world-class leadership training—those living in homeless shelters or transitional homes, at vulnerable youth, or those served at crisis centers, addiction centers and organizations crafted to support individuals trying to pave a new way.

For more than 25 years, the GLS has equipped and encouraged leaders from around the world, gathering more than 400,000 leaders in 124+ countries. In 2015, the Global Leadership Network (GLN) started bringing the GLS into prisons. In 2021, the GLS will be telecast into 100+ prisons, reaching more than 9,000 incarcerated men and women.

The GLN is now expanding its ministry reach by partnering with organizations throughout the U.S. to bring this exclusive and inspiring leadership content at no charge to those in society who would otherwise never have an opportunity to access it.

Why? Because everyone has influence.

The Global Leadership Summit

The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) is a two-day leadership event broadcast to hundreds of host sites and online across the U.S. every August. In the following months, the GLS is then translated, contextualized and hosted at hundreds of locations around the world. During this event, our world-class faculty share their distinct perspectives and expertise, inspiring and equipping people with practical leadership skills that can be applied within their context, empowering positive change globally.

Watch the Event Live From Any Location

Summit View enables groups to experience The Global Leadership Summit from any convenient location. Whether you are gathered in a transitional home living room, a crisis center conference room or a homeless shelter dining area, you can access the GLS experience online via Summit View.

Get On-Demand Access to the Sessions After the Event

  • Watch missed session
  • Re-watch sessions at a time that’s convenient
  • Pause and discuss critical content with others—simply restart when you’re ready to move on

Grace after rejection

Erica Averion Headshot

"For all the people who practice what’s preached and believe in grace after rejection, who believe in restoration after the unthinkable and forgiveness even after the darkest hour—it’s because of you that there are people sitting in chapels in correctional institutions who now feel like they are 'worth something'."

Erica Averion, Advocate for the Incarcerated

Overcoming challenges

"The Summit has been monumental in helping me and our team reach the vision God has placed before us and has helped us overcome so many challenges and obstacles. Every time we are engaged at the Summit, we get re-inspired with a grander vision."

Josh Dotzler, CEO of Abide Network

Transforming our community

"I feel we have an opportunity to transform our community further and show them that each individual, whether they have an address or not, is loved by God and one of His children. Through building trust and true relationships with those we serve, I feel we can accomplish this."

Robert Dalhaus III, Executive Director of C-U at Home

Homelessness declines


"My vision has connected me to great people. We’ve been able to prepare many people for the workforce and help them find jobs. More importantly, we’ve led many people to Christ during the most broken and destitute times of their lives, and I’ve seen the homeless statistics in my area decline not just through the work that we are doing, but through many organizations making a difference collectively."

Se'ka Cheeks, Impact Change Foundation

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is The Global Leadership Summit?

    The Global Leadership Summit is a two-day infusion of fresh ideas, actionable concepts, leadership principles and heartfelt inspiration. We’ve convened a unique group of 15+ world-class faculty who will share their distinct perspectives, inspiring and equipping individuals with practical leadership skills that can be applied right away.

  • Why provide the Summit at no charge to homeless shelters, transitional homes and crisis centers?

    The Global Leadership Network believes everyone has influence, a purpose and God-given talents. For our world to be its best, we all must step into the lives we were called to lead. Unfortunately, due to injustice, prejudice, difficult circumstances or past mistakes, not everyone is given equal opportunity. GLN partners with generous donors to provide an online stream of this event to those who would not otherwise have access to this level of world-class leadership training. Through this event and our shared experience, people experience hope, transformation and inspiration.

  • Who qualifies for this initiative?

    This exclusive offer is made available to specific 501c3s organizations in the U.S. including homeless shelters, transitional home, at risk youth, addiction programs and crisis centers.
