The Congress Planning and Advisory Council (CPAC), which represents the five international zones of The Salvation Army, recently met at International Headquarters for a two-day exchange of ideas and strategies for the 2015 International Congress, which will be held July 1 to 5 at the O2 Arena in London’s east end.

The Council considered topics ranging from Accommodations to Travel, Schedule to Outreach, and a host of other issues that will constitute the building blocks of the observance of the 150th anniversary of The Salvation Army.

Recommendations from the CPAC will be presented to the General for her input and decisions and will be implemented by the Congress Office. The CPAC was chaired by the Congress Executive Officer, Commissioner Bill Cochrane, International Secretary to the Chief of the Staff.

  1. I am confident our Canadian Delegate; Major Mark Hall, will make a lasting contribution. May God’s blessing be above all arrangements.
