My dream for The Salvation Army
01 July 2015
These words are from a speech given by then-Commissioner André Cox to the 2013 High Council that elected him as General. They frame the focus of each of the seven main sessions at Boundless 2015.
“I dream of a committed, effective and joyful Army, rooted and confident in the word of God and on its knees.
I dream of an Army that truly reflects the mind of Jesus in our commitment to the poor and the marginalized.
I dream of an Army that practices what it preaches from the top leadership down, an Army that is a visible and living example of Kingdom values.
I dream of an Army that values its youth where our young people feel that they have a voice.
I dream of an Army with strong relevant and streamlined administrative structures and a much more effective use of our financial and material resources.
I dream of an Army where all cultures are equally accepted and celebrated through the spiritual ties that bind us all together.
I dream of an Army that shuns the dependency culture.”
