Candidates Sunday: 7 May 2023

This Candidates Sunday we will build on last year’s focus of Becoming and prayerfully and passionately consider how we are…

BECOMING all we are created to be

BECOMING all that God would want us to be

BECOMING more and more like Jesus

BECOMING the unique God-colours in the world (Matthew 5:14 MSG)

Candidates Sunday is an important day in the territorial calendar. It is a day when we’re encouraged to put a specific focus on considering God’s calling on our lives and what that calling might mean… what it might look like… where it might take us. Within that broad subject, it is a day when we’re encouraged to think about how The Salvation Army needs officers and territorial envoys, people who are willing to sign up and step out into a new ministry with God. It is an opportunity to encourage and challenge those who are sensing that God is speaking to them about a specific calling he has on their lives.
