You are here!
General André Cox, world leader of The Salvation Army, has challenged every soldier on the globe to participate in The Whole World Mobilizing campaign. Commissioner William A. Bamford, USA Eastern territorial commander, said this outreach initiative is “an opportunity to get to know our neighbors and to let them know that The Salvation Army is present in their communities.”
In the next SAconnects (magazine), you’ll read how corps officers, employees, and volunteers have put their boots on the ground and ministered to the needs of people in their respective communities. Now as the General’s directive encourages even greater and more effective outreach, you’ll see Salvationists literally march through the streets, shake hands, and change the emotional and spiritual landscape.
An “Equipping Tool” (a special section in the magazine) will be your guide. Envoys Sharon and Steve Bussey of Salvation Factory will walk you, step–by–step, through the mobilization process.
When you’re done reading, you’ll know the what, when, how, and why of it all. You’ll also see how some of the exciting and innovative strategies (such as “Mobile Joes”) are capturing the imagination and the hearts of people in need.
Read the next issue and equip yourself to be a participant in this daring campaign. Let your neighbors know that you—and The Salvation Army—are here!
