The 5th Wilberforce International Institute Global Summit

August 23-26, 2023
The Church on the Ridge, Snoqualmie, WA

The 2023 Wilberforce International Institute Global Summit will be held in Snoqualmie, Washington (Just outside of Seattle – upper left on the US map). This 5th Global Summit is promising to be the biggest and best ever. We have secured Dr. Seng Tan to be our keynote speaker along with Drs. Simon Mould and Christian Overman. We are working on filling out the program with several other notable names and important breakout sessions dealing with Christian Worldview, Economics/business, Networking, Family/raising kids, and much, much more. We are inviting Christian internationals in the Seattle area to join us. We are also inviting you, our supporters, to come and see what God is doing through Wilberforce.

We have confirmed Dr. Seng Tan (Singapore), president of International Students Incorporated (ISI) to be our keynote speaker at the main banquet. Dr. Christian Overman of Biblical Worldview will speak on education. Everybody’s favorite, Dr. Bob Osburn, will also be speaking along with Wilberforce President Dr. Kevin Cooney. We will be adding other speakers as we confirm them.

The Summit Purpose

To bring our Fellows and Mentees together so that we can institutionalize their extensive training on combatting corruption, presenting the Christian worldview, and teaching sustained economic development with Wilberforce. It also creates meaningful connection among the attendees that inspires, educates, and sustains the attendees outside of our direct engagement by knowing that they have partners working globally.
