Summit Site Leaders in Mexico and Central America Rally Around a Vision of Transformation

Every year, leaders from the Global Leadership Network travel to regional centers around the world for annual GLS Regional Meetings. The purpose of these meetings is to build momentum for the GLS, and to ensure there is vision alignment around core values and strategies.

In 2019 we brought these meetings to Mexico. In May, 53 GLS sites from Mexico and Central America were represented. We spent two full days clarifying vision, answering questions, and helping to develop strategies in order to see the GLS fulfill its vision in Mexico and Central America.

Here are just some of the incredible stories we heard about the impact of the GLS during those meetings:


I gained motivation to be a better police officer.

I was invited to attend the Summit because I lead a group at the police department. The GLS provides you with vision for where you’re going with God. During the GLS, I received a lot of motivation. It opened my mind in ways I cannot explain. I was so down before I came, but I gained understanding and clarity around some doubts that I had. I started to rise up.

The 84 municipalities are being trained by the Global Leadership Summit!

As leaders you think that you’re doing ok, but after the conference, I knew I had a lot of things I could improve. It was incredible because it helped me to grow as a person in the way that I think and act. Being a good leader is not impossible.

We will reach the next generation of leaders.

God has given us favor with the universities. We’ve had the privilege of having teachers and students come to the Summit from The University of Mexicali. One teacher, who was very motivated by the Summit, decided to give his students an official certificate for attending the GLS. 104 students came!

God has given us favor with the universities.

We wanted to multiply this idea with more teachers. Now students attend and invite their friends. Then we started thinking of opening a Summit for the university, designed for college-aged students, focused on college students. We’re really happy about what’s happening in the education sector. We want to get even more involved and talk to the directors of the universities to expand the GLS to more students of the next generation in our country.—GLS attendee, Merida, Mexico
