Divisional Youth Secretary, Major Alison Moody, knows a thing or two about young people, having raisied three handsome young men and ministering to a million young people throughout her officership. Alison and her husband David are team players and love to travel the South Island together... while riding their Harley. She considers it a huge privilege to serve in the South and to get amongst and journey with some great people. The theme for this year in the Southern Division is “Advancing God’s Kingdom” and Alison hopes that the youth of Southern Division will see that they have an important part to play and that God can use them right here and right now for such a time as this.

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.
