Independent Advisory Group Report
As the Board of Directors for Willow Creek Association, we are grateful to the Independent Advisory Group (IAG) for the hard work and effort, the hundreds of hours of labor over the last seven months, and the production of a report from their engagement that has provided conclusions and recommendations that are helpful and clarifying for our organization and our many partners around the world.
With a desire for complete transparency, we received the report earlier today and are now sharing the full report in its entirety.
We recognize the commitment of time and wisdom the IAG has provided. We receive and accept the conclusions and counsel shared with humility, and with a desire to live into the next steps outlined in the report. We regret the pain that has been caused by past mistakes and believe these directives and information can offer a way forward that allows for acknowledgement, amends and healing.
Our plan is to spend the next few days in reflection, processing and prayer on the recommendations included in the report in order to determine appropriate next steps and direction that we will communicate to our staff, partners and broader community.
We realize we can learn from our past and will not be perfect moving forward. We appreciate the very real challenges identified that are facing our organization, and believe they can inform and improve the efforts and impact of the Global Leadership Summit into the future.
Thank you for your continued prayers, for your ongoing support and partnership, and for engaging in this journey with us as we seek to serve and glorify God together.
