It was a great experience and so encouraging to see a mix of religious and secular thinkers sharing their insight for the benefit of all involved.

“As always, the GLS 2016 delivered high quality content. Patrick Lencioni was on great form on team members, Erin Meyer was fascinating on cross-cultural communication while Chris McChesney and Alan Mullaly brought great practical wisdom from the business world. A great two days with plenty of food for thought!”

The Rev Canon David Richards, St Paul’s and St George’s Church, Edinburgh

“Having just returned from the GLS at Willow Creek, I can confidently affirm that year on year I find the whole experience of this opportunity both challenging and affirming.  This year’s conference was no exception.  A faculty of great speakers, all at the top of their game, offered some rich material for my team to work on now we are back home.  I unhesitatingly and strongly urge you to take your team to one of the GLS conferences in the UK.  You will not regret it!”

Bishop Mike Hill, Diocese of Bristol
