May25WedResults will help the territorial candidates' office identify perceptions and trends. May 25, 2016
In February, the territorial candidates' office launched a survey to better understand how Salvationists across the territory perceive Salvation Army officership. Respondents addressed three key themes: What do people understand about officership? What are some misconceptions? How can we improve the way we communicate officership as a viable ministry opportunity?

The survey responses have been passed on to the territorial candidates' recruitment workgroup. “The workgroup will now spend time reviewing the data and use these results to identify trends and generate recruitment strategies for specific demographics,” says Major Shona Pike, territorial secretary for candidates.
“We are grateful to all who took the time to complete the survey,” Major Pike continues, “and we are encouraged to see that almost 60 percent of the respondents are open to considering officership as a way to fulfil God's call on their lives. We look forward to continuing dialogue about the significance of officership in our territory.”
