Some conferences are inspiring and I come away feeling very excited but not always sure what to do! GLS was very inspiring but I also have an action plan. Inspiring, intelligent and instructional.

Steve Campbell, Senior Pastor, C3 Cambridge, GLS Chicago 2017

“Yet again it was inspiring to be part of a worldwide gathering of leaders who through their experience, vision and faith were able to challenge us to new heights of leadership. The Summit is a must for all those who are serious about ministering in an ever changing church and world. If you only attend one event this year….make it this one!”

Venerable Christine A. Froude, Diocese of Bristol

“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
