“Praise the Lord, all you nations. Praise him, all you people of the earth.” – Psalm 117:1 (NLT)
In recent years the Central Territory’s World Services/Self-Denial campaigns have focused on how giving transforms individuals, families and communities, both those who give and those who receive.
This year’s video series will connect self-denial with the territory’s Mission Imperative of “More people, more like Jesus.” To be more like Jesus means following His example, including generosity and stewardship.
Four video segments are available for use in worship services or can be shared with small groups such as women’s ministries, Sunday school classes, advisory board meetings or youth programs. The videos will highlight not only how to raise World Services/Self-Denial funds but also where these funds are used. This year’s video topics are:
• Self-Denial: Many Central corps are engaging in World Services/Self-Denial in creative and effective ways. This video highlights some of the best practices in World Services/Self-Denial and gives ideas for how your congregation can get involved in new ways!
• Global: Discover how Global Mission Teams (GMT) help to disciple more people, more like Jesus. Hear how one Central Territory soldier’s life was changed by the ministry of short-term missionaries while she was growing up in Panama, and how she has recently witnessed to others as a GMT member.
• Partnership: Learn about some of the projects that have been possible through our territory’s generous giving to World Services/Self-Denial. See how your financial partnership is making a difference!
• Growth: Celebrate the growth of The Salvation Army that is taking place in our Partners in Mission. In addition to these videos, refreshed printed materials including free pledge cards, coin boxes, envelopes and posters are available from the world missions department.
