The Christian Post website reports today (August 7, 2010) that tens of thousands of pastors, ministry leaders, and corporate leaders gathered at over 100 sites across North America for Willow Creek's 15th annual Leadership Summit.
The summit is for leaders who are serious about being better at what they do -- whether it is shepherding a flock, growing a business, or becoming a more passionate follower of Christ.
Peter Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois said, "We are realistic leaders who are trying to lead better in the world."
After beginning with 245 leaders at the South Barrington campus in 1995, the summit has grown to involve some 100,000 leaders from all spheres of society in 76 countries. The two-day event is beamed live from Willow Creek to sites in the U.S. and Canada, and later broadcast at sites throughout the world.
