Leadership Summit 2018
Fashion Island Hotel, Newport Beach, CA
Wednesday, May 2, 6 p.m. – Friday, May 4, 11:30 a.m.
You want to see life well. You want to see God’s truth, see yourself realistically, see other people the way God wants you to see them. You want to see the future, see your family more, see your faith lived out Monday to Friday – not just for an hour on Sunday. Leadership Summit is designed to help you do just that.
In Newport Beach, California, you and your spouse and or senior team members can engage in significant conversations that will help you see God, others and yourself in a fresh way.
Join us and bring your spouse, team members or friends at almost half price. We’ll do life together a few minutes from the beach as we ponder a talk, collaborate over a meal, think deeply together, and hopefully even hear from God as we lean into learning at Leadership Summit 2018 in Newport Beach, California.

Our keynote and breakout presenters will be brief, yet deep and paradigm smashing. They’ll act as your Sherpa guides on the road to seeing things differently. When they’re done, they’ll take your questions and stick around to talk to you. Their wisdom, plus your God given talent and implementation, will equal company change, community change and life change. You’ll begin to see things differently through God’s eyes, not just your eyes, as we lean into learning.
