The Global Leadership Summit is an annual event that brings together leaders (and aspiring leaders) from all walks of life. Over two days, 15 world class thinkers and speakers will use compelling stories and practical advice to equip, inspire and motivate you to impact your workplace, community, and world. This year GLS 2022 will inspire you to VOICE YOU VISION! God has given everyone some measure of influence to leverage. The Summit will help you identify how and where you can apply your influence for lasting impact.

This year, Lake Avenue Church will be a private site only available for Lake members. Join us live on campus! We encourage you to take advantage of this option to have a richer and more interactive experience with your Lake Avenue Church community. If you are unable to do so, watch it in your business or small group, or watch it in the safety of your own home.
