Leadership Summit

Be a Better Leader

August 10–11, 2017

Join business, academic, not-for-profit, civic, church, volunteer, student, military and entrepreneurial leaders to be challenged, equipped and inspired at this year's Global Leadership Summit. On August 10-11, Grace will host one of 500+ locations across North America.

Please note, we will have Spanish translation, an ASL interpreter and closed captioning provided during the Summit.


Grace Attenders: $119

We ask Grace attenders to volunteer during the Summit as part of their discounted conference ticket. Each individual attender must be registered as a volunteer to receive the discounted ticket rate. First, register for your volunteer time slot by selecting your preferred volunteer time to serve. Once you have registered for a volunteer slot, you will receive an email with information on purchasing a discounted ticket. For questions about volunteering, contact Scott Quigley at scottq@gracechurch.us. You can view the list of volunteer descriptions before registering below.

Non-Grace Attenders: Prices Vary

If you do not attend Grace Church, please register through the Willow Creek Association Global Leadership Summit Host Site.
