d a e L It’s rare that Canada is joined together by a single event coast-to-coast. It’s even more

rare when that event is designed to empower Christ-followers to live out their call.

But for 12 years that’s exactly what The

Global Leadership Summit in Canada has been all about. In this, our 20th Anniversary year as a Canadian ministry, I trust you’ll join The Leadership Centre Willow Creek Canada on October 18-19 for the 2012 Global Leadership Summit, as Christ-followers gather for the purpose of seeing God’s Kingdom advance in our country.

Just a few of the thousands of sentiments from Canadian participants at GLS 2011. "My next 5 years will be my best 5 years!" "GLS 2011 stirred me to act on something the Lord has asked me to do several years ago... to start a coalition of men's ministries." "The Summit helped me to recommit to leading my family." "I’m encouraged to go beyond just thinking about God’s call to serve but to commit, for life, to making a difference in our world." "I have a much more optimistic view of the future of the church in Canada. I'm as encouraged as I have been in a long time!" "We can talk and talk about leadership and be all fired up... but [Michelle Rhee and Momma Maggie] really took it to the street. I need to LIVE OUT my own calling better." "I am encouraged and grateful for the efforts to continue to bring the Summit to so many locations. It is worth it to gather leaders and give a time of equipping and encouragement!" "I need to stop working so many long hours and trust God to take care of me and my family." "I was praying for some “flashy” mission. I wanted God to use me like Cory Booker. I learned, though, that my mission might not be pretty." I work in a ministry that puts me in a place of often leading alone. During the event, the aloneness seemed to dissipate and I came away encouraged and inspired - having laughed and cried together." "It re-ignited my passion for following the Lord and sharing my faith."

e r e h w Lead you are GLS 2012 will also feature a widely recognized guest artist. Stay tuned for details!
