The Salvation Army was raised up by God to ADVANCE His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. God hasn’t only raised us up, but He has empowered us. In fact, Jesus Himself said, before He went to be with the Father: “whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these…John 14:12
Commissioning weekend 2022 will be the first time the territory has come together in three years.
We have trusted God in all our planning which is designed to fire us up, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to advance God’s mission like never before.
Soldiers, Adherents, Staff Teams, Officers, and anyone else who wants to join our movement, will have the opportunity to connect in a fresh and powerful way with our mission:
To Preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Meet Human Needs in His Name without Discrimination.
This year we have the distinct privilege of hosting Commissioners Lyndon and Bronwyn Buckingham (The Chief of the Staff and World Secretary for Spiritual Life Development) from London, England. They, along with Salvationists from across the territory, will help us to focus on our three-fold, global commitment: To save souls, to grow saints and to serve suffering humanity.
Salvationists and friends from Minot, ND to Evansville, IN (and everywhere in between) will hear great music, Spirit-led preaching and transformational testimonies from across the territory.
On Sunday we will witness the sacred Ordination and Commissioning of the Messengers of Reconciliation Session as the Cadets are ordained as ministers and commissioned to do the work of The Salvation Army with the new rank of Lieutenant. The weekend will conclude as we all witness the Lieutenants being given their first appointment and sent out to be Officers in His great Army.
