Global Leadership Summit on FH in August

Scout Reports

The Religious Support Office will host its second Global Leadership Summit, Aug. 9 – 10, on Fort Huachuca at the Main Post Chapel. The Chapel community will provide scholarships for 200 attendees so there will be no cost to attend. Soldiers, Family members and Department of Defense workers and contractors are invited. Child watchcare will be provided.

For more information, contact Jo Moore, 533.4748 or josephine.m.moore5.civ@mail.mil.

The lineup of speakers for GLS 2012 includes, Bill Hybels; former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice; and nationally acclaimed business thinker and author, Jim Collins. Marc Kielburger, co-founder of Free the Children; Sheryl Wuddunn, bestselling author, Pulitzer Prize winner and business executive; Craig Groeschel, founder and Senior Pastor of Life Church TV; John Ortberg, Senior Pastor of Menio Park Presbyterian Church and author; and Geoffrey Canada, President and CEO of the Harlem Children Zone will present, among others.

“The bottom line is that I found this summit experience enlightening, intriguing and engaging. This is not an event where you have pastors speaking to pastors — attendees also get exposure to the best of the business, academic and government worlds,” said Chaplain (Col.) Ken Revell, garrison chaplain, Fort Huachuca, who attended the installation’s first event. “This Christian- and values-based summit is not churchy or preachy, nor is it exclusive or intrusive.”

Revell stated that previous summits, both on- and off-post, received highly positive feedback, and participants considered it a very worthwhile experience. He emphasized that this year’s event should lead to similar feedback as there is an excellent presenter lineup.

This is not an event with pastors speaking to pastors — attendees also get exposure to the business, academic and government worlds. While Willow Creek is Christian, the summit experience shows that leadership principles are trans-denominational; they transcend culture and ethnicity, and are often multi-disciplinary.
