Is God calling you to full-time ministry? With The Salvation Army, there’s more than one way to answer. Some choose full-time officership through the College for Officer Training, with dynamic training that is experiential, field-based and transformative. Others opt for our Ministry Placement Program, a one-year paid, practical ministry experience that sparks spiritual growth and provides insight into full-time vocational ministry within The Salvation Army. And some became an envoy or auxiliary-lieutenant, with service and ministry that sometimes lead to officership and always provide a rich opportunity to serve God by helping others.
