Author requests article critique
Once again, Bill Hybels’s Global Leadership Summit will be broadcast in South Africa. Starting in early October, the two-day, high calibre event will be hosted in eight cities across the country and feature a stellar faculty of leadership experts. Hybels, the founder and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, is expected to open and close the summit with practical, inspiring, and relevant insights for business professionals and aspiring leaders.
Hybels, who is known for his vision, passion, and leadership skills established Willow Creek more than 35 years ago. He has grown the organisation into one of the world’s largest and most influential megachurches, with a congregation that exceeds 24,000 members every Sunday. Besides Willow Creek, which leads evangelicals by teaching principles from the world’s best business leaders, Hybels launched the Willow Creek Association (WCA).
The WCA, which has been running since 1992, aims to connect churches for the purposes of realising a strategic vision. Aware of the need to mentor leaders, the association develops leadership and training conferences, as well as provides valuable resources to its member churches. The organisation’s most notable conference is the Global Leadership Summit (GLS), which attracts delegations from major corporations all over the world.
The GLS is a trusted, high-caliber event that’s designed to transform Christian and Business leaders on behalf of the local church with an annual injection of vision, skill development and inspiration.
Launched by Hybels in 1995, the GLS is now a full-scale production with live dramas, music, short films, and talks by 12 expert speakers. This training event takes place annually and is broadcast via video recordings to more than 85 countries in a number of local languages. In South Africa, big screens will be set up at several venues, giving attendees an opportunity to listen to some of the planet’s most dynamic individuals as they share their profound insights into the world of business and leadership.
Although Hybels primarily targets church leaders, secular executives can learn a great deal from GLS speakers like Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, Jack Welch, Jim Collins, and John Ortberg. Hybels believes the transformative potential of local churches makes them the most important institutions in the world. Therefore, the learning that faith-based leaders and pastors are exposed to should not be limited.
