Peer magazine, The Salvation Army’s national magazine for members of Gen Z, took second place in the Evangelical Press Association’s 2021 Best in Class Awards for magazines with a similar readership size.

Replacing the Young Salvationist magazine, Peer debuted in 2019. It aims to reach young people, both Salvationists and those in the community ages 16-22, in a relevant way and become a dependable companion on their journey through high school and college. Its mission is to ignite a conversation that will deepen biblical perspective, faith and holy living; the simple tagline “Faith. Community. Culture.” adeptly captures its focus.

Peer features fresh design elements, a narrower size, an earthier-feeling paper and thoughtfully sourced content to appeal to this generation often referred to as “post Christian.” The magazine is complemented by a website ( and a social media presence on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@peer.magazine).

“At Peer, we believe that Gen Z has an incredible potential to be Kingdom builders and powerful agents of change in our world. This belief drives us to equip, resource, challenge and disciple young people,” said Major Jamie Satterlee, director of publications. “We are so honored to receive this award from the Evangelical Press Association and look forward to continuing to serve Him through publications.”
