Local churches to host leadership summitWritten by Mary Petrides | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Willow Creek Leadership Summit will be coming to two area CedarCreek Church campuses Aug. 5-6, and executive pastor Ed McCauley said he expects more than 12,000 people to attend.
The conference, sent via satellite from Illinois, will be broadcast to more than 170 churches in the U.S. – one in Perrysburg and one in Toledo.
“We’re excited about this opportunity to serve the community with this major leadership conference,” McCauley said.
McCauley said the conference will give religious and secular leaders instructions on how to handle issues like conflict resolution with employees, strategic long-range planning and managing the budget.
“We all have responsibilities at one time or another to lead,” McCauley said.
Speakers include Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric, T.D. Jakes, who appeared on the Sept. 17, 2001 cover of Time magazine and Tony Dungy, who coached the 2007 NFL champion team.
