Olivet chosen as premiere host site for 2012 Global Leadership Summit
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Bourbonnais, Illinois
Olivet Nazarene University will host the live telecast of the Willow Creek Association’s 2012 Global Leadership Summit on August 9 and 10. This two-day event will be broadcast live from Willow Creek Community Church to Olivet’s College Church of the Nazarene — one of more than 200 telecast sites.

Since seats at the main site — Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois — are already sold out, this provides a unique opportunity for local leaders of businesses, churches, and organizations to experience the summit via live telecast. After the event, the summit will move into more than 260 cities in 85 countries via videocast.

Willow Creek Association (WCA) recognizes that the leadership core of any church includes leaders from the business, education, government, and social sectors. The Global Leadership Summit welcomes leaders from all these sectors to this leadership training event. The summit is a tool for transforming Christian leaders around the world with an injection of vision, skill-development, and inspiration.

  • Bill Hybels, Willow Creek Community Church founder and senior pastor
