The Global Leadership Summit is an annual event that brings together leaders (and aspiring leaders) from all walks of life. Over two days, 15 world class thinkers and speakers will use compelling stories and practical advice to equip, inspire and motivate you to impact your workplace, community, and world. This year GLS 2021 continues the theme of INFLUENCE! God has given everyone some measure of influence to leverage. The Summit will help you identify how and where you can apply your influence for lasting impact.

As Covid vaccinations increase and restrictions on public gatherings are easing, we are planning on supporting BOTH an in-person experience AND an online/virtual experience. We believe you will be impacted and blessed by the GLS content and we want to ensure you can experience it in the way you feel most comfortable. Join us live, watch it in your business or small group, or watch it in the safety of your own home. BUT, stay flexible and optimistic. If the public health restrictions change again you will still be able to experience the Summit online.

The Global Leadership Summit is an amazing value. Comparable leadership summits in the marketplace can cost thousands of dollars. As a GLS host site, Lake Avenue Church is able to offer special pricing tiers for BOTH our church members and attendees and business, public sector, ministry and non-profit partners in the Pasadena and San Gabriel valley communities.

Lake Avenue members and attendees can register with early bird pricing by July 12, for as low as $99 per person. After July 12 the price increases to $129. Please use 21HSFAMILY as Priority/Referral Code to get the early bird discount.

Non-Lake attendees and community partners can also register for the GLS for the incredible value of $189 per person for early bird pricing by July 12. The pricing will increase to $209 after July 12. Also for organizations who want to develop their teams by bringing multiple attendees, there is special pricing available for 2 or more attendees. Contact Peter Hutto () or Rajeev Nandakumaran () for details on group pricing and put "GLS Group Pricing" in the subject line.
