2016 Summit Initiatives Benefiting Students, Government, Military, Police & Business Leaders

The months leading up to the Global Leadership Summit this August are exciting for our staff and volunteers as we prepare to create an incredible experience for some of the most amazing leaders in the world!

Our team in the field have been traveling the country encouraging leaders, promoting the Summit, making connections and expanding the Summit in places where the impact has a multiplying effect in churches, organizations and communities. With a vision to help Christians grow their leadership to maximize Kingdom impact, the Summit benefits leaders in every sector of society, not just church leaders. Imagine the ripple effect on the lives of these students, government, military, police and business leaders. We’re so excited about what God will do through these initiatives!

Investing in the next generation
