Local officership and service

Some Salvationists become local officers or spiritual leaders within their corps, while others support local mission by volunteering to be part of a team. 

Salvationists are encouraged to actively participate in the life of their corps. Not every Salvationist will be able to do this in the same way. Our participation will be influenced by our personal circumstances and local context.

While some roles require an appointment or application, we can all consider our own availability, gifts and skills, and ask how we may be able to help.

Ministry opportunities within your local corps may include:

  • Pastoral care
  • Youth and children’s ministries
  • Older people’s ministries
  • Music and creative arts
  • Chaplaincy
  • Community services and social action projects
  • Administration and finance

Speak to your corps officer if you want to explore how you could support local mission.
