Inmate Donates Sacrificial Gift to Expand the Summit

When The Global Leadership Summit and Prison Fellowship partnered to broadcast the Summit to prisoners, it was to give men and women who are incarcerated the tools they need to become effective leaders. In 2015, the Summit welcomed 1,500 prisoners in 11 U.S prisons. In 2018, the Summit was live-streamed to incarcerated men and women at more than 60 prisons.

Leadership matters—even in prison.

This letter came to us from Nathaniel, who is incarcerated at Muskegon Correctional Facility in Michigan. He also gave a sacrificial gift of $10 to expand the GLS so more people could experience it globally. We’re grateful for kingdom-minded leaders like Nathaniel!

 

The Global Leadership Summit has been an abundant well, filled with living waters here in Muskegon. I witnessed chains of doubt and mistreatment falling from my fellow prisoners during this amazing event.

Please pray for all the men here, that we use our influence to steer one another in the right direction for God’s glory, honor and praise. 

Again, every dynamic speaker encouraged us at Muskegon Correctional Facility to praise God and sing with puzzling grace until the prison doors open. Christ’s church is the head and not the tail. Jesus is the best example anyone can ever have as a master teacher with sway in the lives of all of his disciples. He showed compassion to every lamb and sheep!

The disciples watched Jesus ascend into heaven and received the three times portion of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. We share and respect the same anointing as the early church!  We are enlisted as soldiers in God’s army.

Please pray for all the men here, that we use our influence to steer one another in the right direction for God’s glory, honor and praise. Pray that all of the women who are reached while incarcerated are blessed by your messages of equal love.

Please pray for my financial seed of $10 that I am sowing into the Summit. I have named my seed “the greater kingdom” seed and am expecting God will bless it!

The world is made rich with grace, redemption and forgiveness. Thank you, GLS. 

God bless the Willow Creek Association.

Grace and peace,

Nathaniel
