Summit Values | The Non-Negotiables
World-Class, Accessible & Affordable: Getting better as a leader demand intentionality. Each Summit faculty member is carefully selected to deliver intellectually rigorous content in an environment that fosters vigorous thinking and dialogue.
A Culture of Leadership: Everybody has influence and the potential to spark positive change. A culture of Christ-centered leadership can change individual lives, churches, businesses, government, schools and homes. For many leaders, the Summit is the most leadership-infusing annual experience they use to build into their entire congregation.
Unapologetically Christ-Centered: From the very beginning, the primary target of the Summit has been church-focused. Increasingly the Summit attracts Christian leaders from every walk of life. Still, the leadership core in a local church remains the focal point. A culture of Christ-centered leadership can change an entire church, a community?even the world!
Local Ownership, Global Reach: Our host sites and local church leaders are uniquely equipped to reflect Christ to the communities they serve. Whether in a suburb of Los Angeles or a village in Vietnam, local leaders are challenged to elevate their intensity of leadership and adapt the learnings within their cultural context.
