Willow Creek Association
Willow Creek Association (WCA) is committed to the singular idea that inspired, encouraged and equipped Christian leaders transform their communities. The leaders we serve are not just full-time ministry staff, but leaders in all sectors of society committed to pursuing their grander visions—whatever they might be. For more than 25 years, it has been our privilege to serve Christians through events like The Global Leadership Summit.

The Global Leadership Summit
The Summit is a two-day event telecast LIVE in HD from Willow's campus near Chicago every August to hundreds of locations in North America. In the months that follow, Summit events take place at an additional 775+ sites in 130 countries and 60 languages.
More than an event, the Summit is a resource to be leveraged for community transformation. Leaders are discovering that by attending the Summit and utilizing its content and tools, their teams are increasing their impact. In fact, independent research shows that 83% of leaders who attended the Summit in consecutive years feel improved teamwork, increased job satisfaction and productivity.
