Pinnacle Forum was inspired by Dr. Bill Bright, Founder of Campus Crusade for Christ International, who challenged a handful of leaders saying “I believe the only way we can change our culture is to find a way to network our high influence leaders and inspire them to use their influence for God.”  Since 1996, Pinnacle Forum has become a national movement, fulfilling their mission to build a network of leaders committed to personal and cultural transformation centered on the values of Jesus.
