A Message from Craig Groeschel

The first time I attended The Global Leadership Summit as a 23-year-old, I thought, If I could ever be a part of something like this to help reach people, my answer would be yes! To be a part of this now, all these years later, writing to the people who are making this movement happen around the world is one of the most humbling things I can do.

What you give matters more than you can ever imagine.  This is Why…

In the summer of 2019, my wife Amy and I got to visit three of the countries that host The Global Leadership Summit. What’s happening internationally is hard to describe. The excitement here in the U.S. is special, but when you go to some of these places that don’t have access to leadership development tools like the Summit, it’s the difference between surviving and beginning to thrive. Investing in places like Pakistan, Nigeria, Myanmar, or any of the 135 countries where the GLS is located is raising up God-honoring, culture-changing and generation-impacting leadership. Your generosity is empowering stories of transformation all over the world.

We have one of the greatest tools to impact the world right before us. As one who has been close to the Global Leadership Network for the last 20+ years, and now stepping in with more of a leadership role, I can tell you we’re working hard to bring the organization to the next level.

This is a strategic point in our history.  This is Why…

Looking ahead, there are ways to leverage technology to grow very quickly and see exponential growth. The board is excited, the leadership is excited, our global partners are excited, and we believe together, over the next few years, we will impact millions of lives. And you and I get to be a part of this life-changing adventure.

What happens at the GLS is truly incredible. I want my daughters to experience it. I want my sons to experience it. I want everyone at my church to experience it. And I want millions of people around the world to experience it.  This is Why…

What I want to ask you is to be sensitive to God and genuinely ask Him, What would you have me do to impact leaders around the world today?

Remember, this is not just a financial transaction—it’s an investment in people in nations that can and will be different because you give. This is why your gift matters.

God multiplies what you’ve given and continue to give. I pray you find the joy in being blessed and blessing others. What you do matters.

Thank you for your faithfulness,

Craig Groeschel
