“I found the whole two days very thought-provoking and stimulating.”

Rev George Heighton, St James’ Church, GLS Witney 2016

“The GLS offered me practical principles of leadership that powerfully combine simplicity and clarity with wisdom and insight.  What made it even more powerful is that the principles come from leaders who lead across the world and in a diverse range of settings and cultures.”

Ven John Kiddle, Archdeacon of Wandsworth

“I attended this summit having learnt one month earlier, that my job of 32 years will end in 6 months.
To sit alongside so many other people hungry to learn & be challenged, & to be fed by so many passionate leaders willing to share their vulnerabilities & battle scars, as well as their miraculous experiences, is truly humbling & inspirational. My life will never be the same again! I have been saturated with courage & an eager anticipation for where God will lead me. I am thinking bigger & more outrageously than I would have ever dared to think before! Only God!”

Rachael Cottell, Christ Church, Downend, GLS Bristol 2013

“I thoroughly enjoyed the conference. I wasn’t sure about the video, but it was excellent and in no way detracted from the experience. The teaching was both informative and inspirational.”

“The GLS 2016 in Belfast was a great experience. The venue and the hosts were out of this world. I look forward to returning there to their next Willow Creek event in January and also to the GLS 2017.”

“I felt privileged to have attended the GLS and thought the whole programme was of the highest quality from the welcome at the door on the first day, to the content, facilitator and speakers.”
