      Community & Family Services Workers, Staff and Volunteers

      The Corps Ministry Dept C&FS is launching a Zoom webinar series called "Time Out!"
      covering a variety of topics and areas of interest.

      A time out is called during a game for the team to huddle, catch their breath,
      determine strategy and clarity for the final push.

      This webinar series hopes to support, strengthen, encourage and inspire
      C&FS workers, staff and volunteers
      as they minister in their community.

      Thursday, November 23rd, 2017 from 12 noon to 1 pm (EST)

      An effective communication plan can help ministry units build stronger relationships with their community, donors, volunteers, and government funders. This webinar will explore how to gather engaging stories during the Christmas season to boost the profile of The Salvation Army.

      Our presenter will be John McAlister, the National Director of Marketing and Communications Headquarters for Canada & Bermuda
