Corps - Pastoral Ministries

As the Salvation Army moves into the 21st Century, the Great Commission mandate to make disciples of all nations is as foundational a command to His church as ever. But the challenge to which we must rise is that of contextualising this mandate in a rapidly changing world, a world unwilling to slow down and wait for the church to catch up. As disciples, our task is to reproduce ourselves, to see new disciples as the result of our ministry.

Church Planting - At the heart of corporate discipleship is church planting, the establishment of new congregations, and the replanting of selected congregations which have experienced significant decline.

Divisional and Territorial Headquarter are committed to facilitating, supporting, helping resource and providing consultation for church planting across Canada and Bermuda.

To find out more about The Salvation Army and church planting please contact us.

Natural Church Development (NCD) is a tool available for our congregations to analyzeand improve the quality of church ministries. The Leadership Centre Willow Creek Canada, BC, www.ncdcanada.com spent years in intensive international research in over 1,000 congregations to put together this tool. Since 1999 the Corps Ministries Department has been working with Divisional Headquarters implementing and processing NCD throughout this Territory. To find out more follow the link above to Natural Church Development.

Stewardship - The goal of the Salvation Army Stewardship program is to assist the corps leadership in education and mentoring of financial stewardship, for corps, small groups, and families.  Several tools are available for this use.

Multi-Cultural Ministry - To reach out and incorporate believers from every nation is the ideal for The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda.  Find resources for reaching out to new groups, and ways of incorporating all groups into regular worship and the congregation.

The Story

Jul 22, 2013
The Story
How would you like 31 weeks of your preaching/teaching, Bible Study, and Sunday School curriculum packaged and ready to go for the fall? The creators of ‘THE STORY’ have done just that!  The ministry kit includes studies, lessons, videos and more – all ready to go!  Your children follow the same teaching plan as your adults, and it’s all included!

WHAT IS ‘THE STORY’?
What gets your attention faster than a good story?  Jesus’ teaching was almost always in story form:  The Good Samaritan, The Sower & The Seed, The Rich Man, The Good Shepherd, and many more.  So here’s a great resource for every corps called The Story.

The Story, published by Zondervan, is an approach to learning and understanding the Bible using the same message and theme for your entire congregation each week for 31 weeks.

I remember being at a hot air balloon festival, where there was a large balloon floating overhead.  A boy excitedly pointed out the balloon to his parents, saying look – a boat with animals in it.  No one seemed to be aware that that boat came from a story in the Bible, with a lesson attached to it, with a message from God to His people. 

Many people now a days did not grow up going to Sunday School and hearing the fundamental stories about God’s interaction with His people in the world around us. Telling The Story responds to our cultural norm where people respond to images!  We need to be telling and teaching the Bible stories that God has given to His people. 

Imagine the conversations your members could have on the way home and around the dinner table,
talking about what was learned in Sunday school this week by parents
who heard the same portion of scripture taught
in their sermon.

 




WHAT’S INCLUDED?

Included in the start up kit are ministry materials and plans for all ages to be studying, adult, youth and children’s ministry.
  • Work through 31 Bible stories in a chronological order.
  • The story of God’s great love us and know and understand your part in God’s plan
  • Gain an understanding of how the Bible lesson works itself out on this earth and how it fits into God’s bigger plan
Materials:
  • Curriculum and DVD resources for each age group
  • Bibles for each age group that read like a story
  • Materials are also available in Spanish
