The Bureau

Kathryn, Resa, Erin

The Salvation Army in the USA Eastern Territory has a rich history of engagement in the Arts. Established in 1999 by Carol Jaudes, the Arts Ministries Bureau was tasked with preaching the Good News through creative means. Corps and Divisional drama and dance programs began to sprout and grow throughout Corps and Community Centers in the Eastern Territory. Today, thousands of children and adults participate in recreational, as well as formal training, in artistic disciplines behind-the-scenes and in the spotlight. Visual Arts, Costume Design, Audio Production, and Lighting Design have also found their place under the umbrella of Arts Ministries. The Bureau facilitates multiple year-round and seasonal performance groups, mounts high-caliber, live performances every year, and offers training and curriculum for local arts leaders.

Motivated by the Gospel, The Arts Ministries Bureau utilizes the arts to cultivate spiritual, personal and community development through programming, the production of resources and performance opportunities.
