Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Living Stream Ministry will again modify the format for the upcoming 2020 International Thanksgiving Conference. The conference will no longer be held in Boston, MA. Instead, Living Stream Ministry will host this conference completely online, in a way similar to the 2020 International Memorial Day Conference. We also hope that through the help of the churches there could be online prophesying times by localities after each streamed message.
We are looking to the Lord and expecting Him to use this pandemic to do something extraordinary among us during this time. We are praying that He will help us to open this channel for the release of His Word through this ministry. To that end, we hope that all the churches and all the saints will prepare for this upcoming time of ministry and sanctify these days for the hearing of faith among us everywhere. Please pray for His blessing upon this conference. May it turn out to be a real memorial among us to the shame of God’s enemy and to the glory of God’s grace!
All the messages of the 2020 International Thanksgiving Conference will be streamed
beginning at the following times in each locality’s time zone:
Schedule for U.S. churches

- Viewing the messages: The website for streaming the conference messages is
conf.lsmwebcast.com. This site does not require an account and will be accessible to
all the saints and churches to download the conference outlines and run a test video
on their devices, beginning Friday, November 20 th . The site will interactively guide
each saint to the correct language and to the correct time zone for his or her locality.
The messages will be streamed promptly in each time zone according to your
schedule (listed above). Hence, if someone goes to the site late and opens the video
stream, they will be joining the meeting in progress. For example, if someone joins
the Friday night meeting at 7:20 PM in his or her time zone, the stream will
commence 20 minutes into the meeting, not from the beginning. Therefore, we will
need to be on time for all the meetings just as we would in a live conference at a
While we encourage all the saints in the churches to watch the conference messages
at the same time as the other localities in their time zone, we understand that some
may not be able to do so. Thus, once the meeting ends, the message will be available
on the “Archives” page of the conference site. This will afford the way for more saints
to receive the riches within the same few days of the conference.
- Online Prophesying: After each ministry message we encourage all the saints to
join an online prophesying session in their time zone, which we hope will promote the
blending among the churches. We encourage the responsible ones in the churches to
arrange prophesying sessions for their localities. Smaller churches are encouraged to
combine for prophesying. LSM will not provide any online prophesying groups or
facilitate the arrangement of prophesying groups.
- Translation: Messages will be streamed in English, Chinese, Spanish, Korean,
Japanese, and Portuguese. Some additional languages may also be included.
- Hymns: There will be at least 1 hymn for each message. The streamed meeting will
begin with the first hymn. Verses will be displayed on the screen with piano
accompaniment so that the saints can sing along with the hymn. Following the hymn,
the message will begin.
- Message availability: The conference website will be deactivated on November 30 th
at 11:59 PM (23:59) in your time zone. All conference messages will be available for
purchase at http://www.lsmwebcast.com thereafter.
