The Foursquare Global Council (GC) is a body of respected and distinctly elected international pastors and leaders who serve designated terms in an eldership capacity in behalf of our global Foursquare family.
The purpose of the GC is to advance the Kingdom of Christ to reach the nations, bringing hope, salvation and restoration through intentional and proactive collaborative partnerships in a united vision as led by the Holy Spirit.
Comprised of the Regional Chairs from each of the denomination’s 15 regions across the world, the Council also includes those who are invited to serve in the capacity of advisors and/or non-voting members of the Global Council.
The early beginnings of this global connectedness began in the spring of 1982 as the First Global Leadership Conference was held at Lake Arrowhead, California. This event stirred the hearts through prayer and fellowship to aim for the higher call of a true international family in Christ.
Other unifying conferences were held over the years, but the 2012 Global Summit in Phoenix, Arizona saw the fresh beginnings of a new season. Dr. Glenn Burris, Jr., the elected Chair of the Global Council, helped to lead the GC into an intentional future as the elders from the 15 regions took the divinely appointed call as a mandate of ministry for this generation.
