The local church is the hope of the world.
Everybody wins when a leader gets better.
These two statements are the foundation on which Bill Hybels created the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit, a 2-day conference held annually in early August. The summit is held in Chicago but broadcast live around the states and then later taken around the world. Each year the talks are published on a DVD and that’s what we’ll be using for this small group.
I have attended the summit a number of times over the years and it’s two of the most refreshing days of the year for me. I always come away pumped up and ready to tackle the world.
What can you expect? The videos will be anywhere from 20-45 minutes and we will debrief them and pray for one another. I have a few favorites picked out that have stuck with me over the years but I’m open to the group’s needs on picking the others. The few I have picked out:
- Ever felt like this? The first video will discuss the source that helps us find our leadership vision – our “holy discontent” – the thing that we are passionate about to the point of acting upon it.
- Do you ever have to help people get “there” – that point in the future where things will be better? The second video will talk about how to do that.
- Do you ever feel like you’re running on empty in your leadership or just in your life? The third video will explore the dangers of this and ways to prevent it.
Hope you’ll consider this group so that we can get better together!
