What is Salvation Army Officership?

The Salvation Army every year commission 'Salvation Army Officers' which are ministers in Salvation Army churches and centres. To train, you head to The Salvation Army training college Booth College of Mission in Upper Hutt. 

We all have different callings from God, and some might be called into pursuing a life of Officership in The Salvation Army. 

Booth College of Mission

The cool people over at Booth College of Mission have this to say about being called into Salvation Army Officership: 

It’s an exciting thing to get a nudge from God! That strong and passionate prompt in our heart or mind to do something that makes a difference for God and for others.You may be here because you’ve had just such a nudge toward Salvation Army officership.

Talk to your corps officer or candidates secretary in your division. Talk to your friends, your family, your husband or wife if you’re married. Most of all, talk to God. Trust God to lead you. Trust God to use you.

And thanks. Thanks for saying yes to exploring Salvation Army officership!
