“I always love attending the GLS, it gives me plenty to think about and work on. This year was particularly good, God spoke through so many of the speakers directly to me. I return home more focused and fired up to live the life that God has designed me for, whatever it takes.”

We’re convinced that leadership is critical to church vitality. A church’s effectiveness in pursuing its God-given mission is largely dependent on the character, devotion and skill of its leadership core—which can be formal or informal, staff or volunteer, clergy or laity.
The influence and impact of the church is felt most fully when Christ-centred leaders are at the forefront of establishing and growing well-led local churches and organisations…key reasons why the GLS exists.
The church is at its best as God’s love and care inevitably spills out into our neighbourhoods, towns and cities through acts of love, justice, mercy, service and restoration.
God Honouring Excellence
- Committed to doing the best with the available staff, volunteers and financial resources
- Ensure high quality delivery of content
- Consistent with a 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 local partners
Since 2005 the GLS has been building into churches and Christians around the world, helping them develop their leadership skills, cheering them on through difficult times and inspiring them to greater heights. None of this would be possible without the partnership and support of local churches and volunteers.

The Mentor Leader
“In an uncanny way, even though we are a million miles away from Willow’s size and experiences, almost every session was extremely helpful – providing insight, challenge, encouragement, fresh ideas, and much needed hope that we really can make a difference where we are. I arrived weary and concerned, and left invigorated and excited at the next few months.”
Richard Cook, St Andrew’s, Goldsworth Park, GLS 2009
“It was a great event and a real encouragement to me.”
Rick Woodward, Bessels Green Baptist Church, GLS Bracknell 2016
“Simply the best leadership event your leaders can attend.”
Mark Madavan, Locks Heath Free Church, GLS Bracknell 2013
“The summit was wonderful. Engaging speakers from first to last and I left feeling inspired, motivated and newly courageous!”
Kelly Betteridge, St Nicolas Nuneaton, GLS Coventry 2013
“I got a lot out of the day that I attended. It was like a shot in the arm and a much needed time of reflection. It was great to step out of the busy day job to receive some excellent input from the speakers and share and reflect in my small group for the day.”
Will Foster, Wolverhampton University, GLS Stafford 2016
