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.

Dreamers, Encouragers, Planters

Aug 14, 2014
Dreamers, Encouragers, Planters
Dreamers, Encouragers, Planters is a regular conversation among Salvationists about starting new initiatives and congregational development. This one hour conversation will take place about once a month and will focus on a topic of interest with some time for Q & A. Previous, current and future planters are invited to be part of the conversation (as well as some people who are just curious). Join in and explore what opportunities the Lord may be presenting for starting new things.

The currently scheduled conversation is for:
Wednesday, August 27 from 1 - 2 p.m. (Eastern Time).
To join in, email Pauline Goldenthal (pauline_goldenthal@can.salvationarmy.org) and we will send you the teleconference information.
