Leaders must know when to adapt. This is where self-awareness plays a big part.
Top of page Do the Salvos have their own Pope? The Salvation Army has an international leader who is called the General; he leads the work of the Salvos in over countries.
To become General of The Salvation Army, a person man or woman must be a Christian who is ordained and commissioned as an officer minister in The Salvation Army. The electing body, referred to as the High Council, is composed of all active commissioners and territorial commanders in the world.
The founders of the Army were William and Catherine Booth. They chose a quasi-military command structure in when their congregation, The Christian Mission, changed its name to The Salvation Army.

They have three daughters and two grandchildren. Top of page What does a Commissioner do? The roles of commissioners vary, but all carry a great weight of responsibility.
In Australia, there are currently three active commissioners appointed in two territorys: In the Australia Southern Territory, it is my privilege to fulfil this role. This person must provide visionary and practical leadership Campbell soup mission vision values inspire Salvos in their Christian faith.
They are also responsible for the effective implementation of social service programs to meet human need, and for taking social action against evil in society.

I oversee programs and ministry to women, by women and for women. However, in those early days, the greatest work among indigenous people was in South Australia.
The Salvation Army works with people all over Australia, and supports indigenous people with emergency accommodation, refuge through its domestic violence services, food parcels and general enquires.
Around the country there are some wonderful ministries taking place. At the Salvos in Alice Springs, there is a Sunday afternoon service for indigenous members, conducted by them in their native language.
Swan Hill in Victoria is another place where indigenous members of the congregation serve the wider Aboriginal community. The complete text is available on the Army website www.
The statement concludes with the following comment.
Some people might be surprised to learn than communion is practiced among many Salvation Army members—although it is not represented in the ritual and observance that people commonly associate with communion that occurs as part of a church service.
At the famed last supper, Jesus took bread and wine—two common elements on the meal table at the time—and issued an invitation for his people, when they came together, to remember his sacrificial death.
Is the means of remembrance more important than the remembrance itself?
At most meals, it is common practice for Salvationists to say two prayers. In that second prayer the life and death of Jesus is remembered with thankfulness and gratitude. At least this is how the Salvos have come to understand the Bible verse where the apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians chapter 11, verse The work of women has been a distinctive feature of The Salvation Army since it began in It was the dream of Catherine Booth co-founder of the Army to bring about a new dawn for women, and that dream was born long before the Salvos began.
Before Catherine married William Booth and they began what would become The Salvation Army togethershe wrote to him about her idea of a new place for women in the church where their work would be validated by holding office, receiving an allowance, having authority and being respected.
Historically throughout the world, women within The Salvation Army have played a leading role in its growth and development. For instance, when the Salvos first began in Sydney init was a woman—Mrs Adelaide Sutherland—who led the worship service and preached on that first day.
Sincewomen within The Salvation Army have been commissioned ordainedreceived a rank and—in keeping with the military terminology used by the Salvos—been referred to as officers ministers. I have served as an officer for the past 34 years. As a woman, I remain indebted to God for leading me to a place in his church where I have been able to exercise my God-given gifts and invest in the lives of many.
When it comes to social reform, The Salvation Army has long been ahead of its time.
The same can be said in its response to some socially accepted norms. In response to mounting evidence about the associated health risks with smoking, the wider community has become adverse to smoking in the workplace, on public transport and in cafes, restaurants, bars and shopping centres.
But, long before any anti-smoking laws were enforced, the inherent health problems and the cost associated with smoking were recognised by the Salvos and, as such, the use of tobacco was discouraged among its soldiers members. Sincepeople who become Salvation Army soldiers have promised to live without using tobacco.
