The General of The Salvation Army has called for an International Conference of Leaders to commence on Saturday, July 19th and to conclude on Saturday, July 26th, 2014. The meetings will be held in Singapore.
As it is for the General to release the contents of the meetings or the agenda, I am not at liberty to share that information here. Sufficient to say, the agenda contains important subjects that need to be reviewed with our international leadership.
Please pray with us as we gather.
London, 14 July 2014/IHQ/ – 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).
“Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God’s righteousness doesn’t grow from human anger. So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.”
