Leaders Ask to be Baptized Immediately After the Summit
One of our favorite stories coming out of the Summit last month happened in our own backyard at our main campus in South Barrington, Illinois. It continues to motivate our staff for the journey ahead to see more stories like it multiplied across the globe.
Overwhelmed by their experience with all the speakers on the first day of the Summit, three of those business leaders decided they wanted to give their lives to Jesus.
This year, there were more than 1,500 international leaders on our campus representing 135+ countries. These incredible leaders are working to translate and take The Global Leadership Summit back to their countries this fall.
One of those countries, which we cannot mention publicly for their own security, brought a group of business leaders they work with from different parts of the world. Overwhelmed by their experience with all the speakers on the first day of the Summit, three of those business leaders decided they wanted to give their lives to Jesus. They couldn’t wait to be baptized. So as soon as the last session was over on Friday afternoon, the pastor in their group baptized them in the lake on the Willow campus!
Their group gathered in song and celebration, and passerby’s stood by to join in. It was a joyous occasion. We wish you could have seen it. But luckily, there was someone taking photos!
When you give, you go on a journey with us to see stories like this multiplied across the globe. Thank you for playing a part in people being impacted by the Gospel through the Summit!
