Our mission as The Salvation Army is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. We are committed to aligning our territory’s resources and structures so we can best utilise what we have been entrusted with to fulfil this mission to the best of our ability.
The Forward Together goal #4 calls us to be Courageous Stewards, using the resources we have been entrusted with wisely, faithfully, and courageously. We have submitted a proposal to International Headquarters in London to review, refine and improve the organisational structure of our territory. Rigorous work completed over the last 5 years has gone into the planning and analysis of this current review and ultimately, as we are led by the Holy Spirit, we want to ensure every available resource is used to maximum effectiveness in strengthening the mission.
The HQ Review is about refining and streamlining our organisational support channels. We want to ensure that the platforms that support everything that we do are organised and distributed in such a way that support can be agile and fluid and the right resources able to be mobilised to the places where they are needed the most.
The subsequent changes won’t change who we are, rather, these changes will release us to move into new places and take significant steps forward in our mission. We have prayerfully considered this and are trusting God that this is the right way forward for our Army.
