“Lead Where You Are”.  That’s the motto of the Global Leadership Summit. Whether you’re a CEO, a small business owner, a pastor, mid-level manager or stay at home mom… we all lead everyday. Some lead with a passion that inspires others and changes the world. Are you one of them? Leadership matters. Whenever a leader gets better, everyone wins. God has entrusted you with the incredible privilege of leadership. So as a leader, are you willing to set aside two days to be inspired, sharpened and challenged?

The Summit is a Christian leadership conference unlike any other leadership development experience in the world. On August 8-9, 2013 you can join 75,000 US leaders and 90,000 global leaders for this incredible 2-day event hosted at Visalia First Assembly. You’ll never be the same.
