Gather your team to join them live via webcast from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm CST, as they talk about each speaker, show video clips, and explain the unique features of this year’s event.
This webcast will also feature a teaching session with Dr. Henry Cloud—one of this year's Summit speakers—on The Leader's Family: Source of Stress or Source of Strength.

The below note is written by a pastor in Japan, Yasuki Myamoto. Last year, Yamato Calvary Church in Yamato City hosted the Global Leadership Summit and 450 people attended. Less than 1% of total population is reported as Christian and the country is known among the missionaries as “one of the most difficult to share the Gospel” country in the world.
We are still in the stage of rescue operation being carried by professional people and volunteers who would like go there and help as soon as possible but told not to go until organized logistics are set up. Emergency vehicles are only permitted to drive on the roads leading to disaster areas at this stage.
It is frustrating but we need to be patient at this stage.
One of my church members took 30 hours before she was able to talk to her parents briefly on the phone. They are safe but the house was collapsed. (We are not sure yet how all the churches are in that area because of communication problem).
My wife cannot come back home from her work because public transport is reducing their service due to planned blackout (from area to area we will rotate black out so that we can save the electric power for disaster areas)that will last we are told until the end of April. Even in Tokyo our daily life is being affected by this disaster.
I'd appreciate just keep praying for our country specially right now is our nuclear power plant one of them is facing serious trouble. Our worst fear is nuclear leaks. They have been controlling them but are on thin ice.
