Willow Creek Germany has ended its leadership summit a day early after a speaker tested positive for coronavirus.

The three-day summit opened in Karlsruhe, south-west Germany, on Thursday with talks from Craig Groeschel and Danielle Strickland.  It had been due to end on Saturday.

Willow Creek said in a statement in German on Twitter that the speaker, who has not been named, “was not at any time present during the summit” and that there was no risk to delegates.

Summit organisers said they had become aware of the diagnosis at midday on Friday and taken the decision to end early as a “preventative measure”.

“We would like to inform you that we have ended the Willow Creek Leadership Summit 2020 in Karlsruhe early,” said the announcement.

It continued: “This was done for reasons of safety. According to health officials, participants were never in any danger.

“Nonetheless, we have decided to end this event as a preventative measure so all participants can get home safely.”
