What is World Services?

The spiritual and social services programs conducted by The Salvation Army around the globe are referred to as World Services. Many of these programs are financially supported by designated voluntary contributions of individual Salvationists and friends.

 

The year-round World Services/Self-Denial effort includes education for public awareness, prayer and fundraising to support The Salvation Army’s worldwide ministry and further its work in other countries. As a part of Christian stewardship, officers (pastors) and soldiers (members) are encouraged to give sacrificially to World Services.

 

How do World Services/Self-Denial donations make a difference?


World Services money is put to use overseas in a variety of ways, including the funding of specific projects, providing support services to allow for the day-to-day operational costs of running Salvation Army ministries, and supporting on-field personnel, such as missionaries and mission teams. Without the financial support offered through World Services/Self-Denial, ministries in many locations overseas would not have sufficient funds to operate.
