Host the Global Leadership Summit – A Resource for Growth and Outreach
The goal of the GLS is to inspire, encourage and equip Christians to grow in their leadership for maximum impact in their communities and spheres of influence.
- Develop and inspire your team, staff and volunteers
- Encourage a leadership culture and establish a common vision
- Enable networking opportunities with leaders from your local community
The GLS can also be used by churches as a tool for outreach – to serve businesses, schools/teachers, medics, non-profits, local authorities and more.
The GLS objective is to provide the following:
God Honouring Excellence
- Delivered through a partnership agreement between WCA and the Host Church based on a consistent historical orthodox view of biblical Christianity
- Leadership focused in its content
- Application focused in its programme and follow-up
- Fearless about stretching people beyond their comfort zone
- Serious about diversity, social and justice issues
- In cooperation with existing local partners
- Develop new networking opportunities
- Inspire in-house leadership and volunteerism
- Commit to raising the value of world class leadership development
GLN has developed a generic model for the successful delivery of the GLS and there are some considerations which require evaluation before committing to becoming a GLS Host Church. We emphasise to all interested parties that it is a volunteer-intensive endeavour but it has the power to help unite and strengthen your church community and is a wonderful gift to your local area. To execute a successful GLS, there is a number of requirements to consider, as follows:
