Connecting THQ and frontline

I have worked on the front-line mission of TSA and at headquarters. Both areas give a different view of our wonderful organisation. We could invest in limiting any disconnect between THQ and front-line ministry by giving the opportunity for workers in THQ to spend maybe 2-4 weeks experiencing the front-line TSA ministry of their choice, anywhere in Australia. This would develop greater awareness of the needs on the front-line. We could also offer the reverse so that front-line workers can...

App - Christian life discussions

Update 02.03.20:  Idea did not progress passed RDL Stage.   I would love to see an App developed to help everyday Christians when they get together in small groups be able to have discussions with each other about how the Christian faith relates to real life.  I believe people want to know how Jesus relates to their life but often don’t know where to start. We could develop an app as a resource so that when two or three (or any number of) Christians come together they can be guided in...

Corporate Partnerships to save costs

How about we seek beneficial corporate partnerships to save operational costs nationally. From where I sit it seems we aren't currently receiving special rates on mobile phones, mobile plans, lease vehicles, fuel costs, computers, internet and phone services, software, utilities, flights, hotels, banking - you could probably throw solar in there (someone has already submitted an idea for this) - and there may be other areas. We could potentially save millions nationally with better deals...

Network for Corps Thrift Shops

It would be great if Corps Thrift Shops could network together to be better resourced: I'm not saying they should all be the same. I think the diversity is great and I think that having Op Shops that are different to Salvos Stores is also an advantage for us because they can capture different markets. But Salvos Stores do share resources across their shops and there's no reason that Corps shops couldn't do this also. Networking together could provide better branding, network of vehicles,...

Local business sponsorship program

Local businesses care about their local area and often don't know how to respond to the needs in their community. We could develop a transferable framework for engaging local business for sponsorship and other forms of partnership with The Salvation Army in their local area. You could have varying levels of sponsorship with recognition (rewards) for the different levels. The idea is to bring greater PR expertise and impact to the local level. Local business seems to be a relatively...

Chaplain to Department of Child Protection and Family Support

Child Protection and Family Support (CPFS) work with possibly the most vulnerable people in society. We think it would be a great idea to provide chaplaincy services to CPFS staff, which could also extend to the families they work with. The staff of CPFS usually take on their role to make a positive difference with Children and their families, and can quickly discover that the demands of their work are overwhelming. We would love to support the protection of children in our community...

Inter-generational mainly music

The idea is to run mainly music in an aged-care facility or retirement village to encourage bringing generations together. Mainly music gives a basic introduction of who God is. Bringing the generations together would help to build healthy communities for some of our most vulnerable people. This would be impacting on many levels. Obviously this wouldn't need $200K, but it is a good idea. I must confess my wife Chelsea Wilson told me this a couple of weeks ago.
