officership

What is Salvation Army Officership?

Each year, The Salvation Army commissions 'Salvation Army officers' who are ministers in Salvation Army churches and centres. To become an officer, you do two years of training at The Salvation Army's Booth College of Mission in Upper Hutt.

We all have different callings from God, and for some, that calling might be to pursue a life of officership in The Salvation Army.

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 reading this because you’ve had just such a nudge toward Salvation Army officership.

If that's you, have a chat to your corps officer, divisional youth secretary or the candidates secretary for your division. Talk to your friends, your family and most importantly, talk to God. Pray about it, and trust God to lead you and use you.
