The Territorial Youth Department is the coolest department at THQ on Cuba Street in Wellington. Meet the team...

Mat is the head honcho for youth in our territory.

Leslie is the Youth Department granddad (he’s been here for fourteen years!) and knows all there is to know about the youth scene, cricket and the best places to find curry in Wellington.

Ben is our resident Australian, who loves to be organised and entertain the department at break time with good (yet to be proven) dancing and quality banter. If you're interested in a political coversation or anything to do with youth programme he's your go-to guy.

Scott is...

Vanessa is our second longest serving youth department member. She's got a wealth of knowledge on all things youth. She brings class to the department and thinks (yet to be proved as well) that she has the best moves on the d-floor.

Come in and visit, chat with us at an event, or say hi online!

What's what & who's who?

The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa Territory is made up of five divisions and two regions.

A 'division' refers to the group of corps (churches) and centres within a geographical area and simply helps organise the bigger structure.

Our five divisions are: Northern (upper North Island), Midland (middle North Island), Central (lower North Island), Southern (South Island) and Fiji (all Fiji islands). Tonga and Samoa are included as 'regions', as they are slightly smaller.

Each division has an officer who oversees all the youth work in that area. These cats are called Divisional Youth Secetaries and they do a whole heap of great work. We also have a Territorial Youth Secretary and team who oversee the big picture stuff relating to territorial youth ministry.
