GLS 2017 Feedback


The GLS 2017 is underway and making a positive impact on pastors and leaders around the country. Here’s some of the latest feedback:

GLS Blue Mountain

Every year as it gets closer to the summit, I find myself busy and start asking myself if I really have the time and energy to go. And each time God surprises and blesses me with content that is directly applicable to what I am currently going through.

Reassurance is vital in helping me to stay on track. When an initiative occurs to me it is like a red hot fire; to consider ignoring this, I believe, would cause me to die. Please do keep on doing what you are good at. Even elderly women with ideas need to know they are doing the right thing in the community they live in.

Each year the GLS offers new ways to think about how you lead in whatever situation you are in – whether it’s business or church. I found I was challenged this year by what sort of leader people may consider me to be and I really enjoyed how many excellent women speakers there were.

We as a mission team attended in St Mark’s Battersea… [it] was really like a window opening to fresh ways of thinking.

By the end of Bill Hybel’s opening address, I knew that I had justified the outlay for attendance right there! Point after point had me saying ‘yep!’ Every point had direct application to me, either in my own walk with God, my personal influence as a father and grandfather or in the leadership and mentorship of others in my voluntary organisation role.

This Summit drew closer to the heart of Christian Leadership than any other.

Revd Gwyn Owen, Christ The Servant, Stockwood, GLS Chicago 2017

Thank you for this year’s GLS, which I found truly inspirational. I didn’t know what to expect, but I was really challenged and encouraged from the start with new and helpful thinking… I went with a staff member and we got down to some real searching stuff and had a really fruitful and helpful two days.

Martyn Colley, Allington Baptist Church, GLS London Battersea 2017

I go away challenged, uplifted and inspired.
