2016 Global Leadership Summit - August 11 & 12
Lead Where You Are
The Global Leadership Summit is a two-day event that is telecast LIVE from Willow's campus near Chicago every August to more than 300 locations in North America. AC3 is a satellite host site.
AC3 believes that good leadership is critical to a church's vitality. A church's effectiveness in pursuing its God-given mission is largely dependent on the character, devotion and skill of its leadership core—which can be formal or informal, staff or volunteer.
The Church is at it's best, as God's love and care inevitably spills out into our neighborhoods, towns and cities through acts of love, justice, mercy, service and restoration. Summit details and registration is now available at the GLS website.
2016 Visioncast Retreat - August 26-28
The weekend before Labor Day "Save the Dates Now!"
Visioncast is a critical event in the annual life cycle of AC3. It’s special. I can’t tell you exactly how or why, but God does something special in our church every ministry year, starting with this retreat. Maybe it’s the time away from the grind. Maybe it’s the intimate setting. Maybe it’s the intentionality of those who set aside the time to come. Whatever it is, this special weekend inaugurates a spiritual theme that God carries through the year, it forms friendships that would not have otherwise formed and it energizes us as a church.

Make an appointment on your calendar now, to experience Visioncast. If you haven’t come before, ask yourself one question: “why not me?” Seriously, why not you? It’s designed for you. It’s affordable. It’s fun. It’s the best “church” going during the Pause! And I believe, God has great things in store for you there. So… why not you?
You will be able to download the 2015 Visioncast brochure here when it becomes available!
