OKLAHOMA CITY — Crossings Community Church is preparing to host its 18th Global Leadership Summit on Aug. 8 and 9 at Crossings OKC Campus on Portland just southwest of Edmond.

Doug Burleson, longtime Crossings member, volunteer, and avid Global Leadership Summit attendee, said, “The Global Leadership Summit is about influence. Everyone is a leader; everyone has influence. The Summit is about personal growth, learning new things, and expanding your horizons spiritually and emotionally so you can be a better leader and person. 

“The speakers span a number of subjects including business, entrepreneurship, ministry, and others. You will hear from incredible men and women. It’s deeply impactful and well worth the time and money.”
