Every year we block book for the Global Leadership Summit which is run by Willow Creek Southern Africa and then we nag people to attend. This year there were over 70 people who were booked through Emmanuel and they were thoroughly blessed!
Here are some of Theo’s Highlights for the Summit:
- Bill Hybels: Why can’t our next five years be our best?
- Len Schlesinger – serial entrepenuers have a bias toward action
- Cory Booker – If it needs to be let it start with me
- “We dig the ditches – only God can make it rain” – Steven Furtick
- “Because the tide is out does not mean there is less water!” – Seth Godin
- Pastor Tadessa Asay: Twice they tried to execute him by electrocution and failed. His response: To carry on preaching.
- Mama Maggie Gobran: Through silence we discover that the Kingdom of God is in us!
- Michelle Rhee: Mediocrity? Not on MY watch!
- Erwin Macmanus: Are you taking your dream to the grave?
A week later we met to reflect on the summit and agreed that we had been powerfully moved, challenged and inspired.
