October 2018 Global Leadership Summit
Ten CCP staff attended a two day annual Global Leadership Summit (GLS) with the theme "Everyone has Influence" held on October 4th and 5th, 2018 at Christ Is the Answer Ministries (CITAM) Valley Road.

The summit is part of a year round leadership development journey designed to maximize influence and unleash transformation in a family, school, work, church or any other field. The GLS vision bearer, Bill Hybles, Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church started the event 20 years ago with the aim to bring together and empower leaders through such a summit.

Pastor Bill shared what all leaders have in common- that all leaders see MORE than others see and before others see. He encouraged leaders to believe in abundance, creativity, and flexibility. He also shared five processes to help leaders discover how they can increase their leadership capacity; Test, Fail, Learn, Improve and Re-enter.
