The Salvation Army Eastern Territory is planning the 2020 Vision Congress to be held June 11-14, 2020 at the PA Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg PA. Salvationists from across the Territory will gather for these momentous days of worship, teaching and refocusing on God’s vision for the communities in which they serve.
The General and Commissioner Rosalie Peddle will be the special guest speakers at the 2020 Vision Congress. They will be a part of the Messengers of the Kingdom Session’s commissioning, ordination and appointments.
Now that you’ve heard The General’s Call to Prayer in his video above, you have the opportunity to engage with this foundational element of our 2020 Vision Congress. Even now, you can begin praying for our time together. You can bring before the Lord the people who will be joining together; asking for Him to prepare and penetrate each heart for His purpose. You can bring each program before the Lord, seeking His blessing upon the myriad of activities that will encourage and emblazon our faith. And you can be praying for God to honor the many efforts being put forth toward the necessary provisions to bring the Territory together in praise and celebration of all He has done.
As we look forward to all that God has in store, perhaps you have very specific prayers for the 2020 Vision Congress. We hope you do! And right now you can share those prayers. Watch for the prayers you provide to be used in a meaningful way throughout the weekend. Fill out the form and add your specific prayers. We’re praying with you and we can’t wait to see you there!

The 2020 Vision Congress will take place at the PA Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg PA. Most of the activities of the Congress will be under this one roof. No need to shuttle your people back and forth. We want you to come and stay for the whole day! There will be many simultaneous events and activities to choose from. A menu of options!
There will be five united sessions that will feature our excellent territorial groups, as well as, selected individuals and groups from across the territory. There will be corporate worship, artistic expressions of the Gospel and Bible teaching by The General in a 7000-seat arena.
The InnoVision Center is a space in which participants of all ages can explore the identity and purpose of Salvationism through a variety of interactive and multi-sensory displays, activities, and experiences. The journey from the past, through the present, and into the future will focus on the overarching vision of “the glory of God and the salvation of the world,” illustrating how this mission is accomplished through the process of continuous adaptation and innovation. These experiences lead to an incubator where participants are invited to consider, commit, and testify to God’s future vision for their lives.
This small arena will host a variety of worship concerts throughout the weekend featuring groups from our corps, our divisions and our territorial groups, such as the New York Staff Band, Eastern Territory Staff Songsters, Move, TAM and much, much more. If you are looking for a place to worship alongside a brass band, this is the place. If you are looking to be ushered into God’s presence through the singing of songs, this is the place. If you are looking to sit back and enjoy our fine artists and dancers while basking in the greatness of our God, this is the place.
