Welcome to WLC’20!


Worship & Leadership Conference aims to strengthen and prepare the local church. The purpose of this conference is to encourage churches to lift up powerful worship and praises, and empower the leadership based on Christ’s love and His Kingdom. We pray that people will meet God and be used as an influencing vessel.





About holding events and measures against infectious diseases

We have decided to hold the Worship & Leadership Conferecnce’20 as scheduled due to the government's cancellation of the state of emergency and eased action restrictions. For the peace of mind, we will work to prevent the spread of Covid-19 according to the policy for measures against Covid-19 by the government and Hamamatsu City. We will also enable you to participate in the conference online. We will flexibly respond to changes in the situation, such as further strengthening measures and changing the content. If there are any changes, we will inform you on the website. Thank you.
