“Well I can honestly say it was the best leadership seminar that I have attended in 35 years of working in the Telecomms industry! I could not believe the sheer quality of the talks / presenters – the two days just flew by. Even if I was being really picky, there is nothing I would change. Looking forward to next year.”

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.

Sally Sutton, Upton Vale Baptist Church, GLS Plymouth 2016
I loved being at the GLS with the team from our church. We were inspired, challenged and motivated. I loved the balance between real life, practical leadership lessons that I could apply in my own life and the life of our church and the inspiring, visionary content that encouraged us to dream big. Thank you!
