Three ways to participate without being present

By Jared McKiernan –

As Boundless – The Whole World Redeeming draws near, thousands of delegates prepare for the trek overseas to London’s O2 Arena.

The five-day congress will feature an array of culturally diverse celebrations and events for all in attendance—from the opening rally to the grand march down The Mall.

But those not in London for the festivities can still join in. Here are three ways:

1. Create a prayer video

Officers will gather from around the world on June 30 for International Officers Councils. During the worship service, themed “Every Knee Shall Bow,” officers will be called to an important time of intercession.

 You can join them in prayer via the giant video screen.

 Simply use your camera, video camera, smartphone or computer to create a 30-second video of you praying for the General, the international congress, your corps, The Salvation Army around the world, or any other prayer you would like to contribute. Upload the video to

2. Join the virtual choir

During the final worship service of Boundless on July 5, delegates will join in singing the hymn “Holy, Holy, Holy,” accompanied by the International Staff Band, the International Staff Songsters, Richard Phillips, and the worship band TransMission.

You can join Salvationists all over the world singing in a virtual choir on the giant video screen. You’ll need a computer or laptop with a webcam and a pair of headphones. Visit to get started.

3. Join the conversation on social media
