Why does SouthBrook host the GLS?
SouthBrook believes that at this price, the Global Leadership Summit is the best leadership training that exists. We believe that when leadership improves, businesses, families and communities improve as well.
What is SouthBrook's relationship to the Willow Creek Assosiation?
SouthBrook is a satellite host site for the GLS experience.
How does SouthBrook develop leaders beyond GLS?
SouthBrook offers a leadership development program called Provoke. Provoke exists to create people who create Dayton and consists of monthly ongoing leadership events and a series of studies located at local businesses.
*You may be aware that Bill Hybels, senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, was accused of misconduct and inappropriate behavior, and these accusations are now being investigated by the Willow Creek elder board.
With the full agreement of the WCA Board, Bill has resigned from all leadership responsibilities with both the Willow Creek Community Church and the Willow Creek Association. He will not appear or speak at the Global Leadership Summit.
There is no question that Bill has had a significant impact on this ministry, but the Summit has never been about one person. It has only ever been about the mission to energize Christians and mobilize churches globally by growing their leadership skills and commitment to maximize kingdom impact. To that end, our SouthBrook leadership continues to believe in the value of the Summit and continue to support bringing the Summit to SouthBrook and the Dayton community.
