For many years, some of Orchard Hill’s leaders traveled to Willow Creek for the Global Leadership Summit. In 2010, Orchard Hill was given the opportunity to bring this content-rich conference to the Cedar Valley. Since then, Orchard Hill has partnered with Willow Creek to be a premier Summit location.
Every year we open our doors to hundreds of leaders in the Cedar Valley. Many churches and businesses in town use this event as their main leadership development training. This year, over 700 people participated in this two-day simulcast event.
“I enjoyed every one of the speakers this year!” said Tammy Chambers, and “Bryan Stevenson's session on justice and hope was eloquent and very challenging!!” said Katy Myers, both via Facebook comments during the day.
Speakers ranged from business and nonprofit innovators, to church leaders, and speakers from the education sector. "When I compare the Summit to all the other different leadership opportunities available to me, the Summit is the best. It's the best in terms of the quality, the experience and the people you get a chance to meet," said one Summit attendee.
Orchard Hill also has a huge group of volunteers whose focus is creating a warm and inviting space for attendees to enjoy the day. “A huge thank you to all the great volunteers that once again made the GLS happen. Your servant hearts and "can do" attitude makes it happen and creates success,” shared Pat Oehler, Summit Event Manager.
Next year’s Global Leadership Summit will be August 9-10, 2018. To register for the special price of $79, visit orchardhillchurch.org/summit.
