Who will be the next Salvation Army general?

The Salvation Army has gathered The High Council to elect a new General for the worldwide organization. The High Council meets for one purpose: to prayerfully choose the next world leader of The Salvation Army. The 2013 High Council consists of 117 members (64 women and 53 men) made up of all the active commissioners and all territorial leaders (some territories are led by colonels), each of whom was summoned by the Chief of the Staff for the sole purpose of electing a new General. Keep them in prayer!

About The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 81 cents of every dollar spent is used to carry out those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
