Salvation Army – Called for Ministry Service
If you’re truly called, it will be the only thing that truly fulfills you. Converse with God about where He wants you to serve… He will lead you.
How to Listen
Callings often come through prayer time, on mission trips, or at special events. Sometimes, God’s calling comes in your everyday walk.
Following Christ’s footsteps. Feeding the hungry, visiting the lonely, loving the unlovable, and leading the lost to God.

Salvation Army School for Officer Training
The purpose of The Salvation Army’s Evangeline Booth College School for Officer Training is to equip “blood and fire Salvationists” with the skills and experiences necessary to fulfill their calling of God to become Salvation Army Officers. All the activities and events featured on this site combine with prayerful study and God’s enabling toward achievement of this highest goal.
Are Salvation Army Officers ordained?
Ordination and Commissioning – Each June cadets who have successfully completed training are ordained as ministers and commissioned as officers in The Salvation Army. The ordination and commissioning ceremonies are conducted in a public meeting before families and friends.
Their work will often be among the poorest and neediest of our society. All will make a difference: some as corps officers (pastors and corps community center administrators) and others in Salvation Army rehabilitation centers for recovering drug and alcohol addicts.
Others will be the difference by reaching out to meet the immediate and long range needs of the children under their care. Each one will carry the message of love. Each one will be the voice of God in the place where he or she is needed. Each one will follow the highest calling.
What are the qualifications for officer candidates?
Men and women wishing to become Salvation Army Officers must be Christians, believe they are called to full-time service, and be Salvation Army Soldiers (members) endorsed for officership. They must possess a sincere love and understanding of people and be willing to work in highly demanding situations upon graduation.
Education: At least one year of college, military training or work experience following high school graduation and prior to entering officer training. High school students considering officership should give special emphasis to English, Humanities and Business courses such as accounting.
Many cadets enter Salvation Army Officer training after several years in a secular career, and many are married with children. Accountants, homemakers, engineers, school teachers, physicians, nurses, social workers, and many other professions and occupations are represented among the cadets.
All candidates should have at least a 12th grade reading level. Any candidate with a Thurstone IQ below 25 (or equivalent) will be required to take further testing for acceptance.
Marriage: Accepted candidates who are married before entering officer training will both participate in the full academic and practical officer training program. Accepted candidates who are engaged may both enter training at the same time. Marriage may be permitted at the conclusion of training, provided the engagement was official six months before commissioning.
Non-American Citizens: Must have an immigrant visa permitting them to work in the USA for an indeterminate time, or be a Permanent Resident (Green Card).
Language: All candidates will be required to take a reading test. Candidates must pass a 12th grade reading level (be reading at a college level). For those who speak English as a second language, if a college reading level is not achieved, they will take the TOEFL -the TOEFL is required by all colleges in the USA for ESL students.
It is to measure how well they will perform in class. If English is your first language and a college level is not achieved, reading classes will be recommended in order to reach the required level.
