ST. PETERSBURG (RUSSIA) - On December 10 and 11, St. Petersburg hosted the Global Leadership Summit 2015. It was organized by the North-West Association of the Russian CHurch of Chrostoans of Evangelical Faith and the Church of Evangelical Christians-Baptists.
A featured speaker of the summit in St. Petersburg this year was Dr. Satish Kumar, pastor of the church in Hyderabad, India, which has over 120,000 members. The minister shared the word about family, ministry and personal relationships with God.
The Global Leadership Summit is a unique opportunity to join more than 260,000 Christians in more that 120 countries, who seek God, want to grow and mature in the Lord, and become more effective ministers. Messages of the preachers who participated in the summit blessed, gave food for thought, strengthened our values, raised new questions, inspired and, of course, threw new challenges! These two days in St. Petersburg became a real blessing to all who attended the summit!
