Telephone Treasure hunting

There is an outreach concept called treasure hunting, where you get together with someone, pray together and ask God to give you Names, colours, signs, places, and issues, pain that a particular person might be experiencing and even strange things. You write them down and God leads you to people on the street. What if we did that by phone or social media. Ring someone that God has given you the name of, check their facebook page and see if the colours matchup then ring and tell them God has...

Musician sharing

Perhaps we could have a list of musicians who are available to use their musical gifts to help our smaller corps from time to time who don’t have musicians. We could especially use people that are in large corps who have to be closed due to the corona virus, maybe we could even offer to pay professional musicians who are struggling at this time

Pay for petrol

Kindness changes people and points them towards God. what if we were able to be kind to multiple people by paying to discount petrol to a $1 a litre and when people ask we tell them this is what Jesus would do if He we here.. It’s sharing Gods love in a practical way. Romans 2:4 says “ In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change.”Romans‬ ‭2:3-4‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Pubs, stations and street ministry for sale

We have great ministry opportunities in many areas at our stations, pubs and shopping centres not to mention the income we can get. Not all opportunities get taken though. And I worry if we don’t use them we will lose them. I wonder if we put a list together of all the pubs, stations and street ministry positions that we have permission for and if another corps wants to take advantage of some ministry and extra funds they could. And perhaps we could arrange for the corps area the ministries...

Hope for the Helpless

It would be good to have an envelope in airplanes as an option to give money to the salvos as other charities do or even an option to donate when you watch a movie on inflight movies, or purchase from the onflight menu or an option when you book a flight online to donate to the salvos

Salvo Poker Machines

why do poker machines take all your money, what if we could create one that gives you back the same amount of money you put into them, perhaps this could help addicts. Perhaps you could even make a donation to the Salvos at the end

Salvo house swap

how about setting up a salvo house swap, so when your going away you could let people know and someone can use your house, or visa versa, if your looking for a place to stay for some holidays how about you swap with someone or just use their house while their away. It would save on cost and extra security for your house while your away. If it’s a Corps officers quarters you‘d have to tell the corps, you don’t want any late night calls on your holidays

Loss Chaplaincy at Sporting events

i notice at Major sporting events people get really upset when their team doesn’t win, what if we had people available at the exits to have a chat with people that need to talk through their teams loss productively, and gain some perspective, and not deal with it in coping habits
