VISION

The Salvationist Service Corps is a six-week mission experience that allows young adults ages 18 to 25 to discover a deeper relationship with Christ through ministry alongside other Salvationists both abroad and within the Southern Territory.
 
The Salvationist Service Corps is specifically for Salvationist young adults who are engaged in a growing relationship with the Lord and who are seeking a deeper walk with their Lord.  Individuals are selected from an application process.  Once individuals are chosen, teams are formed according to the needs of each location and each individual’s strengths.
 
The purpose of the Salvationist Service Corps is to give young adults the opportunity to catch God’s heartbeat for the world (including their own part of the world) through service with The Salvation Army.  The members of the Service Corps are given the opportunity to come alongside officers and Salvationists who are already working in the area.
 
Members of the Salvationist Service Corps are challenged spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically while on a team.  They will have the opportunity to change and grow in their relationship with the Lord by practicing listening prayer, corporate worship and daily devotions.

VISION

Mission South is a new initiative from the Territorial Youth Department. For six weeks, 8 individuals will have the chance to travel throughout the southern territory training, serving, and equipping individuals doing mission here on our front lines. This experience has been carefully crafted to recognize the needs and challenges happening right in our home communities, and responding by serving through the incarnational ministry of presence.
 
God has called our faith and service to action domestically in both urban and rural neighborhoods. You will experience a variety of contexts and be challenged to meet the needs of a broken world through the healing power of the gospel.
 
We are looking for leaders interested in justice and restoration who are willing to seek out the last, the lost, and the least. If you feel called to take part in the transformation of God’s kingdom, we ask you to consider being a part of the Mission South Team.
 
Young Adults age 18-25 are encouraged to apply by February 1st, 2014.

VISION

The young adult one-week mission trips happen in January and March.  These trips exist to allow young adults who cannot or may not want to go for six weeks the opportunity to experience mission in another culture.  The one week trips give young adults a chance to see God at work in a context outside of their own.

REQUIREMENTS

The one week trips are available to anyone between the ages of 18 and 35. In order to participate in the one-week trips, a young adult needs the approval of their application from their Corps Officer and DYS. Once this has been done, the Territorial Young Adult and Mission Deployment Coordinator receives the participant application with the DYS endorsement. If a DYS gives his/her approval, we assume that the young adult has the approval of his/her Corps Officer and any other divisional approval that is needed.

COST

Participants raise 1/3 of the cost of the trips.  The cost of the trip varies according to which trip they choose.  The January trip, costs $200 for the week plus the participant’s airfare.  The March trip costs $450 for the week plus airfare.  A participant would then raise a third of that cost.  The other two thirds of the cost is divided evenly between a participant’s home division and territorial headquarters.
