Divisional Youth Secretary, Major Katherine Sonntag, oversees all things youth in the Central Division. She has a wealth of experience in youth ministry, having been a DYS in previous appointments. Kate Geddes works alongside Katherine as the Divisional Youth Mission Director and she gets to organise and facilitate all the events and camps for youth and kids in the Central Division. Katherine and Kate both love hanging out, drinking coffee and investing into young people, so if you're ever around Central DHQ, pop in and say hi!

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 a '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.
