Upcoming GLS Events & Prayer Requests

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 8:30 am CST, our staff gathers together to pray for our partners across the globe.

Please join us in prayer as we lift up the international Summit events happening this weekend. Pray for God’s anointing on every detail and that those who attend would leave feeling equipped, inspired and encouraged to lead the change they long for in their communities.

And if you have a prayer request, please share it with us. We would be honored to pray with you!

Banjul, Gambia

The local church is the hope of the world! This lesson, and many others I’ve learned at the GLS help me not to relent, but to keep dreaming big. The GLS helps me to realize the need for godly leadership in our world and empowers me to continue equipping  leaders. The story about the little engine that could resonates for me. I am convinced that I can make a huge difference in the country and the world at large as Christ strengthens me. The GLS is empowering lives and bettering institutions. It is important for the GLS to continue in The Gambia so that we can see the transformation we yearn for!

We deal with sacrifice. As Christian leaders, we know what it is like to work with few tools. We’ve learned how to be more dependent on God alone. This is our way to carry out the Great Commission, but we really need to be a part of this global community. We can share with each other, and complement each other, because it’s not a local challenge; it’s a global challenge. In our country right now, we are facing the same issues that you are facing. We’re really living in the center of the same spiritual and ethical challenges.

When we present to them that the local church is the hope of the world when it is working right, it really connects with people. I have seen it connect in every corner of India. People realize they have a role. I am privileged to be part of this team so I can inspire and challenge people.
