1 The Salvation Army Outdoors Presentation Notes and Powerpoint Archery & Bowhuntng Summit December 4, Ø Slide 1 Title Slide Ø Slide 2 - Shield The Salvation Army Doing the Most God In these four words, our mission is to feed, to clothe, to comfort, to care. To rebuild broken homes and broken lives. By walking with the addicted, we can lead them to recovery. In fighting hunger and poverty, we can feed and nurture the spirit. And, in living and sharing the Christian Gospel by meeting tangible needs, we give the world a lasting display of the love behind our beliefs. An international movement, The Salvation Army is an evangelical arm of the universal Christian Church. Our message is based on the Bible, and our ministry is motivated by the love of God. We preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Ø Slide 3 Origin o William Booth embarked upon his ministerial career in 1852, desiring to win the lost multitudes of England to Christ. He walked the streets of London to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the poor, the homeless, the hungry, and the destitute. Booth abandoned the conventional concept of a church and a pulpit, instead taking his message to the people. His fervor led to disagreement with church leaders in London, who preferred traditional methods. As a result, he withdrew from the church and traveled throughout England, conducting evangelistic meetings. His wife, Catherine, could accurately be called a cofounder of The Salvation Army. o From its simple beginnings in 1865 in the poverty-stricken East End of London, England, The Salvation Army grew rapidly during the 1860s and 1870s. By the end of 1878, The Salvation Army in England had more than 75 corps (worship and service centers) with 120 officers (clergy). In October of that year Salvationists (Salvation Army members) Amos and Annie Shirley immigrated to the United States and began holding 1

2 evangelistic meetings in Philadelphia. Their daughter Lieutenant Eliza Shirley soon followed them. Repeatedly throughout 1879 the Shirley s asked General William Booth, The Salvation Army's Founder, to send officers to establish The Salvation Army in America Ø Slide 4 Organization The Salvation Army s is in over 150 countries worldwide with its International Headquarters located in London, England. The Salvation Army is divided into 4 Territories in the United States (Eastern, Central, Southern and Western). Each Territory is further divided into Divisions, with each having Territory having approximately 10 Divisions. The Salvation Army has over centers of operation in the United States. Other organizational facts: o The basic unit or frontline of The Salvation Army is a corps. A typical corps consist of a church, social services unit, food pantry and gym. A corps is managed by a corps officer who is responsible for all day-to-day activities and outreach to the local community. Corps are strategically located in urban and rural areas to effectively serve those in need. The Salvation Army has 1,216 corps nationally. o Kroc Centers - In 1998, Mrs. Joan Kroc, widow of McDonald's founder Ray Kroc, donated money to The Salvation Army to build a comprehensive community center in San Diego, California. Her goal was to create a center, supported in part by the community, where children and families would be exposed to different people, activities and arts that would otherwise be beyond their reach. When Mrs. Kroc passed away in October 2003, she left much of her estate to The Salvation Army, by far the largest charitable gift ever given to the Army, and the largest single gift given to any single charity at one time. The initial disbursements of this bequest began in January The gift was split evenly among the four Army Territories - Central, East, South and West. The Salvation Army envisioned this as a long-term project that it could take up to 10 or 15 years to have all of the centers open and operational. There will be a total of 27 Kroc Centers once the project is complete. o Salvation Army Camps - Thousands of children from low-income families enjoy fresh air, exercise and new friendships at annual summer camp programs. The camping experience is more than just a pleasant vacation. Children learn new skills and self-reliance; trained counselors who understand their emotional needs and problems help them to mature. Camp Activities include learning to swim, adventure and scouting, arts and crafts, music development, and sports. Each year over 200,000 children attend Salvation Army camps. There are 46 camps nationally with each Division having at least one. Most Salvation Army camps have been around since the early 1920 s. 2

3 Ø Slide 5 Ongoing Work o The Salvation Army provides a number of social service programs to help Families, Adults, Seniors and Veterans. This includes Hunger Relief, Housing and Homeless programs, Adult Rehabilitation, Veterans Services, Human Trafficking & Missing Persons programs. o After School Programs - The Salvation Army operates hundreds of after school programs in low and moderate-income neighborhoods across the country. These programs provide children with a safe place to play and learn in a supervised and constructive environment. In many cases The Salvation Army will provide sports, arts, and music programs, which may or may not be available in the local school systems. As the economy has declined and local municipalities have struggled to fund these extracurricular programs. The Salvation Army has made efforts in many communities to provide these learning opportunities. o Character Building Rooted in the Scouting tradition, the goals of these programs are to develop positive social and communication habits, decision-making and life skills with character and leadership. o There are over 3,000 Character Building troops in the United States that have over 36,000 members. o TSA Character Building programs are celebrating their 100 th anniversary this year. o William Booth was a member of the founding board of the Boy Scouts. o Many Salvation Army Divisions have Boy Scout troops as well as Boys & Girls club members in their Corps community centers. In 2013 there were 339 Boys & Girls Clubs in Salvation Army community centers. Ø Slide 6 Opportunities o The Salvation Army Outdoors initiative provides opportunities for kids of all ages to learn new skills, explore creation, and experience exciting new adventures. The Salvation Army Outdoors goal is enhance programs, to equip leaders, and to engage friends. o Enhancing Programs - The Salvation Army Outdoors initiative comes alive through existing Character Building, Community Center, Day Camp, and Summer Camp programs. Leaders are always looking for new ideas, experiences, and materials that their youth will love. Science-based, conservation educational curricula like Growing Up Wild and Project Learning Tree provide hundreds of tried and tested ideas and activities that engage youth. o Equipping Leaders -New and seasoned leaders need to be encouraged and equipped. The Salvation Army Outdoors Field Training events are designed to introduce leaders to the initiative while providing practical training and skills, such as: Conservation Educational Curricula, Basic 3

4 Archery Instructor, Camping, Basic Air Rifle Instructor, Pioneering, Geocaching, Fishing, Boating and more. o Engaging Friends - The Salvation Army Outdoors initiative would not be possible without the help of vested partners and friends who share a love for God s creation. o Salvation Army Corps, Community Centers & Camps see over 2 million children each year. o The Salvation Army Outdoors has trained over 200 NASP BAI and 20 BAIT s to facilitate the growth of its archery programs and clubs. All 10 Divisional Camps in the Central Territory are trained and equipped. o In 2014 Community Based Archery Clubs were launched in the Central Territory. o The first Salvation Army online NASP archery competition was held in October Ø Slide 7 What they bring home..
