When & Where
Leadership Network was created in 1984 from the close collaboration between Bob Buford and Peter Drucker to foster innovative movements among churches that active the broader church for greater impact.
Believing that meaningful conversations and connections can change the world, Leadership Network seeks to help leaders of innovation navigate the future by exploring new ideas together to find application to their own unique contexts. Through collaborative meetings and processes these leaders map future possibilities and challenge one another to action that leads to results.
Through our gatherings, publications, books and online experiences we share the learnings and inspiration to others and surface new conversations worthy of exploration.
Leadership Network is a Dallas, Texas, based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Its global ministry includes programs around the world.
