Church Ministry Hosts Summit To Correct Leadership Deficiency

The leadership failure at various levels has become one of the problem plaguing the world and especially Nigeria today. With corruption becoming a national Frankenstein and moral bankruptcy corroding the social fabric, the leadership question has become a vexing puzzle that Nigerians are toiling to find an answer to.

This is challenge that has been taken up by Vision International Christian Ministries in conjunction with Willow Creek Association, Chicago, USA, by organising a forthcoming summit titled “The Global Leadership Summit 2015.”

Rev. Francis Olubambi, national director of Vision International Christian Ministries, avowed that leadership which cut across board – from home to office to religious centres, and various levels of government – has been the bane of this country. He said, “Nigeria is blessed in every ramification but our leaders have not allowed this country to attain her God-ordained greatness.”

Decrying the prevalence of bad leadership in the country, he spotlighted the importance of leading the right way. “Leadership in Nigeria is all about the well-being of the leaders and their cronies. If every leader at the various strata leads where they are, it will surely impact positively on the larger society,” said Olubambi.

The summit, he disclosed, “aims to equip leaders at every stage on how to lead wherever they are.”

Global Leadership Summit is a two-day life-changing event with a video cast that includes influential Christian speakers such as Bill Hybels, Jill Collins and Liz Wiseman. Others are Horst Schulze and Brene Brown. Nigeria’s Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Centre is also among the speakers of the summit which will take place in Lagos on September 25 and 26, 2015 at Daystar Christian Centre, Oregun and Redeemed Christian Church of God, located at Province 19, 39/40 Ogudu Road, Ojota.

Rev. Olubambi is positive the summit will impact on those who attend. “Once the society gets the right leader everything will fall in place. Nigeria wins when leaders get better,” he concluded.
