Salvationists and friends from around the world will be able to share in worship and celebration with Salvation Army leaders – including General André Cox and Commissioner Silvia Cox (World President of Women's Ministries), the Chief of the Staff (Commissioner William A. Roberts) and Commissioner Nancy Roberts (World Secretary of Women's Ministries) – through the live-streaming of the welcome meeting to the International Conference of Leaders in Singapore. The meeting, to be held at Singapore Central Corps (church), will take place at 4.45 pm local time (GMT +8) on Sunday 20 July 2014.
The service will be live-streamed through the International Headquarters (IHQ) website at sar.my/2014icl, which will also be the address for updates from and information about the conference. The page includes a helpful countdown clock so that international viewers can see what time the event will start where they live.
David Giles (Web Manager, IHQ) says: 'The live-stream will be an interactive event. I would encourage online participants to add prayers and comments throughout the meeting.' These can also be made on Twitter, using the hashtag #2014ICL – which will continue to be the hashtag used in social media updates throughout the conference.
The last ICL took place in Toronto, Canada, in 2012. During the past two decades, ICLs have also been held in London, UK (2009), New Jersey, USA (2004), Atlanta, Georgia, USA (2000), Melbourne, Australia (1998), and Hong Kong (1995).
