The Global Leadership Summit is a two-day event that is telecast LIVE from the campus of Willow Creek near Chicago every August to more than 300 locations in North America. Throughout the fall, Summit events take place in an additional 350+ cities, 105 countries—translated into 50 languages.  The Leadership Summit is one of the outstanding leadership development opportunities available to church leaders each year. This year the Leadership Summit is Thursday and Friday, August 14-15, 2014, from 9:00am till 5:30pm.  Churchnet is a member of the Willow Creek Association, and we provide our member discount to our congregations.

Discounts for First Time Attenders - NEW LOWER RATES

For several years, Churchnet has offered scholarship assistance for persons wishing to attend, especially targeted toward those who are experiencing the event for the first time.  Again this year these discounted registrations will be offered to Missouri church leaders.  The regular cost for this event is $265.00, but we are prepared to scholarship ministers as first-time attendees of this Willow Creek-sponsored event for a price of ONLY $50.00 if you register by June 24th.  This special price is for those who have not previously attended the Willow Creek Leadership Summit.  There is a limit of two discounted registrations per church, and after June 24th the discounted rate goes up to $80.00.

Special Location Discounts

Due to a special partnership with the Parkade Baptist Church site in Columbia and the First United Methodist in Jefferson City Churchnet can offer a price of $99 per registration, and first time attendees (two persons per church) may attend in Columbia or Jefferson City for only $20.00.

General Discounts for Previous Attenders - NEW LOWER RATES

For those who have previously attended a Willow Creek Summit, but wish to take advantage of the Churchnet Willow Creek membership and our discounted rate, we can register you for the reduced price of $129.00, if you register by June 24th.  After this date the discounted rate goes up to $159.00.  To register for a seat at the Summit, send your name, your address, church name, phone number and email address to: bperry@thechurchnet.org.  Or you can call Bob Perry at:  888-420-2426, ext. 706, and provide your registation information, along with the site which you wish to attend.  We look forward to helping your church leaders participate in this special leadership development opportunity.
