Pastor John Faison Sr. & Watson Grove Missionary Baptist Church will host The 2017 Global Leadership Summit (GLS) for the third consecutive year as Nashville’s only location to attend GLS. The inspiring leadership conference offers content from a world-class faculty that motivates leaders and bolsters team morale. Among the faculty for this year is Founder & Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative Bryan Stevenson.
Similarly to Bryan Stevenson, Pastor Faison engages in social justice activism. He recently returned from a trip to the nation’s capital where he and other clergy members gathered to meeting with key members of Congress to ensure that the most vulnerable are protected and that our leaders pass a budget that is fair.
Here in Nashville, Pastor Fasion expressed his thoughts during the Jocques Clemmons murder investigation with his op-ed in the Tennessean that questioned some of the investigations earlier claims. He is also a member of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International (FGBCF) Social Actions Committee, formed for ministers and faith leaders to discuss ways to address injustice from the pulpit and beyond.
At the 23rd Global Leadership Summit, Willow Creek Association’s Global Leadership Summit drives transformation with fresh, actionable insight from a diverse faculty who challenge leaders to maximize their influence. The two-day 2017 Summit will be simulcast live by satellite in HD to 600 sites in North America on August 10/11, including Watson Grove Missionary Baptist Church.
Willow Creek Assoc-iation (WCA) drives relevant conversations about leadership and presents solutions to leadership challenges through its catalytic Global Leadership Summit.
In the fall, the Summit goes global in 60 languages, reaching 128 countries to inspire an anticipated 400,000 leaders to greater Kingdom impact.
Faculty members offer uniquely different perspectives, enabling Summit participants to challenge their learning.
Each member of the faculty is purposefully selected for their expertise, proven success and innovative approaches in non-profit, government, education and faith-based sectors. Among the faculty for this year is Founder & Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative Bryan Stevenson. Last year, Stevenson was mentioned on Fortune’s World’s Greatest Leaders list.
