Summer Outreach - 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.
