At LCBC, we believe that everyone has influence. We all make an impact on the people around us; at home, at church, at work, or in our communities. When we get better as leaders, our circles get stronger.
That’s why we recommend the Global Leadership Summit to everyone who will listen! The Global Leadership Summit is a can’t-miss opportunity! We learn from world-renowned leaders who bring their unique perspectives from business, ministry, and more.
The only thing we don’t love about the Global Leadership Summit is that it’s only two days! Luckily, speakers from the Global leadership Summit 2023 and past years have published some incredibly insightful books to help you grow all year round.
