Global Leadership Summit – Nazareth, October 28-29, 2016

Last October Nazareth Evangelical College and the Baptist School in Nazareth hosted the Global Leadership Summit (GLS) for the second year in Nazareth. About 140 people from various backgrounds attended the conference. Some of them were Church leaders, such as pastors of local churches and leaders of Christian organizations, while others were leaders in various secular professions.

The conference hosted lectures by well-known international leaders with a gift for teaching the skills of leadership.

Local leaders were hosted as well. Judge Jamil Nasser, a senior judge in Israel, emphasized the importance his places on testifying to Christ in his work place;he argued that a successful leader is one whose heritage glorifies Jesus Christ. Dr. Nakhleh Bishara, the former director of the Nazareth Hospital, spoke about the necessity of being a humble leader in order to lead a team.

We wanted to see what attendees thought of the conference, so we interviewed a number of local leaders. Here are some of their key statements:

Judge Jamil Nasser – Senior Judge in Israel

“The conference provides us with new horizons to shape the successful leader in the Lord’s ministry for the edification of the body of Christ.”

Ms. Randa Elias – Human Resources Director in Nazareth Hospital

“This conference challenges us to transform what we learned into effective actions that make a difference in our society.”

Mrs. Mary Sakran – The director of the largest human development college in the Arab sector in Israel

“Although I come from the secular world of leadership, this conference widened my knowledge and gave me new skills by which I can improve my leadership role.”

Dr. Louis Abboud – A Senior Doctor (Physician) 

“The conference has been helpful for me as a senior physician in the Israeli health system; I am also sure that the content of the conference will give me new ideas for my church ministry.”

Pastor Bishara Deeb – Pastor of Jaffa Baptist Church near Nazareth

“The purpose of the conference’s content is to enrich the leader’s mindset in order to develop their skills so that their church or organization will function in a way that fulfills the goals God has put on the leader’s heart.”
