Thousands of leaders across the globe are attending a three-day gathering for teaching and training across multiple fields and spheres of influence. This year’s International Pastors & Leadership Conference will be held in Tampa, April 25 – 27, and was inspired by Bishop T.D. Jakes’ best-selling book, SOAR!: Build Your Vision from the Ground Up.

Bishop T.D. Jakes, entrepreneur and senior pastor of The Potter’s House, has convened a team of thought leaders, speakers and executives to provide advanced training in relationships, processes, workflows, investments, marketing, advertising, communication and more. The conference will also address today’s cross-generational environments. Breakout session topics include cyber security, mental health, staff diversity, social justice, the art of preaching, artist development and how to handle change. Jakes will also be unveiling his latest book, Crushing: God Turns Pressure into Power.
