Dec6ThuFlex-training model offers Salvationists such as Cadet Sharon Tidd the opportunity to serve full-time in ministry units while enrolled at the College for Officer Training. December 6, 2012
On Sunday, November 25th, 2012, Sharon Tidd was welcomed as the newest cadet of the Canada and Bermuda Territory. The College for Officer Training community was all together in Winnipeg for a spiritual day led by our Territorial Commander, Commissioner Brian Peddle. The commissioner welcomed Sharon into the 'Disciples of the Cross' session and proclaimed how excited he was that the Field-based tailored training model was allowing new levels of flexibility and that this should send a clear signal to many others who are considering God's call on their lives to be trained as Salvation Army officers. There are currently 29 residential Cadets in Winnipeg and 6 Field-based Cadets.
