About World Changers Summit

 The World Changers Summit was founded by Drs. Matthew L. & Kamilah Stevenson, the Senior Pastors of All Nations Worship Assembly. The vision for the summit began as an annual conference for churches a part of Dr. Stevenson’s GATE Network of churches.

Today, the World Changers Summit is a premier conference attracting thousands of people from around the world with various backgrounds and denominations. “This is a monumental event that is expected to be unlike anything the city of Chicago has seen in recent years. I’m so excited to be a part of this already record breaking event,” said Ivey Smith, conference coordinator for the WCS.

 What to Expect at World Changers Summit

 “Long live the Church” is the theme for the 2017 World Changers Summit. It is a rallying cry from those that look to disrupt “church as usual,” while ensuring the longevity of one of the most enduring institutions in the world. Often criticized for his controversial approach to communicating the Gospel, Dr. Stevenson is known for his lack of conventionalism in reaching those on the fringes. He is sure to deliver a bold proclamation on the durability of the Church.

The summit will feature some of the most relevant voices of our time; such names include: Bishop Paul S. Morton, Bishop Jacqueline McCullough, and Rev. Tommy Tenney.

Those that have experienced WCS describe it as “the conference that changed everything” for them. “It was at the 2015 World Changers Summit where God changed the trajectory of my life.” said Ricky Watson of Augusta, Georgia. “The prophetic word I received from Dr. Stevenson during a night session led to my decision to move to Chicago and join All Nations.”  

This year’s WCS will also feature some of the most prominent worship artists: Pastor Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Kierra Sheard, Johnathan Nelson, and more.

This World Changers we wanted to cultivate a worship experience that would not only be creative, but would inspire anticipation, while leading people into the presence of God, and motivating them to live lives that impact the world,” said Dr. Matthew L. Stevenson.
