Jan 6, 2020
It’s the start of a new year—a new decade: 2020.
The Salvation Army enters this new year with the same mission it has had since 1865: to preach and to serve. (And for much more about the organization and its six key pillars of service, head back to episode 21).
But where are we at the outset of 2020 and what is to come?
General Brian Peddle, the international leader of The Salvation Army, is on the show today to share just that.
Originating from Newfoundland, General Peddle was elected as the organization’s 21st General in 2018. A Salvation Army officer since 1977, General Peddle has served in The Salvation Army from Canada to New Zealand to the United Kingdom.
Today, he highlights what he is most proud of in the Army’s international zones, which cover 131 countries of official ministry.
He addresses his Call to Mission and where it stands going into this new year.
He shares about issues from the environment, to the concept of post-Christianity, to using an online space for good.
And he offers his twofold priorities for the year.
