Global Leadership Summit: My Personal Leadership Development Recharge

Global Leadership Summit personal leadership developmentNothing recharges my personal leadership “batteries” like the Global Leadership Summit, founded by Bill Hybels, lead pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in Chicagoland.

I’ve attended the Global Leadership Summit for 13 years at one of the first live videocast locations – Kentwood Community Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I served on the pastoral staff for 10 years.
