International Headquarters’ Sports Ministry Desk exists to encourage, support and resource Salvation Army Sports Ministry leaders around the world to find connections, to build relationships and to help people and communities to enjoy healthy lives in bodies, minds and souls. It does this as part of The Salvation Army’s mission to ‘save souls, grow saints and serve suffering humanity’.
In seeking to fulfil this mission, International Sports Ministry’s objectives are to:
• Cast a vision to The Salvation Army world.
• Identify, equip, mobilise and encourage Salvation Army Sports Ministry leaders.
• Connect The Salvation Army with the global Sports Ministry Community.
Major Dean Pallant heads up the Sports Ministry Desk at IHQ and works closely with Lieut-Colonel David Bowles, Sports Ministry Coordinator Europe. You can contact Dean at IHQ-ProgRes@salvationarmy.org or David at firstname.lastname@example.org
