20 New Corps in 2017

Twenty New Corps Graphic_Large_Color_Central Initiative VersionVision

What if we could direct World Service giving to help Salvationists around the world to build corps buildings for increased ministry and service? During the 2016-2017 World Services year, the USA Central Territory will focus our self-denial giving on building or improving 20 Salvation Army corps facilities around the world.

How does this work?

Each division, CFOT, ARC Command and THQ will be given information, photos, and resources for one or two of the 20 New Corps projects.  It is up to each command and unit to determine how you would like to promote, fund-raise, and educate about the 20 New Corps initiative.  If you would like information about your division’s project, contact your Divisional Missions Representative.  (If you aren’t sure who your Divisional Missions Representative is, contact the World Missions Department.)
