Congress Communications Connect the World
AN international media team of 36 professionals is on site at The O2 in London, covering every angle of The Salvation Army’s 150th anniversary international congress, Boundless – The Whole World Redeeming. Under the direction of International Headquarters Communications Secretary Major John Murray, the Boundless media team includes communications personnel from New Zealand to Zimbabwe, the UK, Canada, USA and beyond.
The media team is producing a daily congress newspaper, Boundless Today, from 1-5 July to allow Salvationists and friends to keep up with all Boundless events. The metro-style daily newspaper will feature eight pages of behind-the-scenes content, profiling music groups, speakers and delegates, and reporting on the main sessions and other events.
At The O2, copies of Boundless Today will be available from the delegate information desk in the main foyer and from the Boundless Experience (the area that includes the historic display and information booths). An online version will be published daily at 9am British Summer Time at sar.my/boundlesstoday.
Throughout the day, Boundless 2015 news and information will be available at www.boundless2015.org, Twitter (@Boundless2015), Instagram (Boundless_2015) and Facebook (Boundless 2015). The www.boundless2015.org home page is worth visiting just to see the social media 'wall', which is constantly being updated with contributions from Salvationists and friends from all over the world.
'We’re using multiple social media and web platforms to engage Salvationists around the world,' says Major Murray. 'We want people to feel connected, to follow the happenings in London, and to share photos, tweets and Facebook messages from their locations. We're One Army united through Christ and sharing in a Boundless celebration!'
