Leadership Summit

August 6–7, 2015

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 6–7, Grace will host one of 230+ locations across North America.


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 317.848.2722, x209 or scottq@gracechurch.us. You can view the list of volunteer descriptions before registering below.
