Maximize Online Ministry - Salvation Army Canada


     The Canada and Bermuda territory has identified 7 Strategic Priorities which should govern our focus and efforts in ministry and mission. Strategic Priority #6 - The Gospel and Transformation has become the responsibility and focus of the Corps Mission Resource department. 

    The Gospel and Transformation

    Goal: To share the gospel, lead people to Christ and nurture them in their faith


    • Provide evangelism training and resources that empower Salvationists and others to share their faith
    • Adapt outreach methods to best reach people for Christ
    • Encourage ministry units to work and witness outside of their buildings to bring hope to their communities
    • Embrace cultural diversity with sensitivity and openness
    • Care for all creation as an act of worship to God
    • Create diverse opportunities for worship grounded in Salvation Army doctrine and practice
    • Celebrate stories of transformation and new life in Christ
    Initiatives and resources to encourage, train, and support in the mission of evangelism are constantly changing and evolving.  See What's New in Evangelism for more details.

      Ten things you must do to maximize your online worship ministry.

      1. Present the gospel and invite listeners to become followers of Jesus!

      2. Pray for listeners - and offer to pray for their concerns.  Provide  phone, email or contact form online for prayer requests.

      3. Communicate your upcoming events, and invite listeners to attend or tune in and how to do so.

      4. Inform listeners about available assistance and how to access assistance.

      5. Enable listeners to give to community service efforts, the corps ministry, or other mission efforts.

      6. Promote volunteer opportunities and provide ways for people to engage with the corps.

      7. Drive people to your website for more information and some choice resources.

      8. Make sure you identify your location and address, so listeners can find you.

      9. Follow up every prayer contact, comment or social media engagement.

      10. Saturate your online ministry in prayer.
