Creating a Learning and Leadership Culture
What We Do
What We Also Do
Laurie and I love Gettysburg. For the last 15 years, we’ve been hosting leadership development conferences on the truly hallowed fields of America’s largest battlefield. We believe it’s a unique place to learn “battlefield” leadership — at the edge of the battle, whether in the spiritual battle or day to day in profit or non-profit environments. Laurie and I, after 20 years in the USAF, have been on Campus Crusade for Christ staff. As a professor at that Air Force Academy, my interest in Gettysburg and the Civil War was ignited by the last class I taught there. The Turner Movie-Gettysburg, the book Killer Angels, and my study of biblical leadership went on to fuel this interest. Over the last 15 years of walking the fields with developing leaders, we continually find that Gettysburg is one of those “thin-places” where the temporal and the eternal are uniquely connected. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, the hero of Little Round Top, once said that the fields of Gettysburg are a “vision-place for the soul.” We’d love to have you experience it with us.

In great deeds something abides. On great fields something stays. Forms change and pass; bodies disappear, but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls.
And reverent men and women from afar, and generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to see where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field to ponder and dream;
And lo! the shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into their souls. – Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain
