“The speakers were inspirational. Our team left the GLS having been envisioned, encouraged, challenged and empowered and we plan to continue to process all the very practical teaching and insights we received. I left the GLS encouraged and reassured that yes, we can do this.”

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
“I have been coming to the Global Leadership Summit for many years. This year’s summit I found especially inspiring. I had been thinking that 2016 would be my last GLS – but it was so good that I have decided to come back next year.”
Anita Hanwell, Vale Community Church, GLS St Albans 2016
“Once again the standard of input from this ‘must be at each year’ conference was outstanding. I found the presentations, worship and networking providing a high level of encouragement, inspiration and practical advice that will so improve my leadership. It has been an investment I have certainly not regretted.”
Mike Holmes, Coastlands Family Church, GLS Swansea 2013
“First of all can I give massive thanks to everyone at WCA for another fantastic GLS. One of this year’s seminars was entitled “good to great”, and for all of us that attended from ABC it seemed that GLS06 had moved from good to great!”
Phylip Morgan, ABC Church, Ammanford, South Wales, GLS 2006
“The WCA GLS was a game changer for me… in my walk with Jesus, church leadership, ministry, work, family and home life!… I’ll never be the same, thank you!
My husband and I know it was a divine appointment. Thanks so much for making this available to us here in the UK.”
Niky Dix, Wadebridge Christian Centre,GLS Bristol 2013
“Thank you Willow! You never fail to deliver! At the end of each year’s Summit, I find myself asking, “Well how will they ever be able to top that one?” The amazing this is, You always do!”
David Millen, Evangelical Ministries, Belfast, GLS 2010
