Salvation Army releases 2020 yearbook
The newly published Salvation Army Year Book 2020 provides a complete overview of Salvation Army ministry throughout the world. Throughout the Year Book’s 368 pages, international overviews sit alongside details of every Salvation Army territory, command and region, together with historical information and a helpful Salvation Army glossary.
First published in 1906, the annual publication incorporates details of the organization’s work and ministry in 131 countries, with facts and statistics supported by reports, articles and color maps and photographs.
According to General Brian Peddle’s foreword, the newly published Year Book is “a statistical and programmatic representation of The Salvation Army,” but the facts and figures recorded in its pages are “of little value if they are not saturated with the pervading presence of a holy God.”
The fold-out cover highlights General Brian Peddle’s Call to Mission – which is explained more fully in one of four in-depth articles: “Gender Equity Emphasized in The Salvation Army” by Commissioner Eva Kleman, “Women’s Ministries Responds to Holy Urging with ‘Reimagining’ Initiative” by Commissioner Rosalie Peddle and “Salvation Army Responds to Humanitarian Crisis along USA/Mexico Border” by Lieutenant Colonel Allen Satterlee.
“I celebrate the ministry of The Salvation Army,” the General writes. “I am privileged to lead this international movement and I thank God for his faithfulness and his hand of blessing.”
