Commissioning 2023

Rejoice – Commissioning Weekend 2023

Rejoice 2023 | Commissioning & Ordination

Commissioning and Ordination of the Reflectors of Holiness Session and Celebration of Service for Commissioners Brad and Heidi Bailey

Theme: “Rejoice”

Purpose: This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 NKJV

Commissioning Weekend 2023 will be a time for the territory to come together and REJOICE as we celebrate God’s faithfulness and witness what He is doing through The Salvation Army in the USA Central Territory.

Over the three plenary sessions on Friday night, Saturday morning, and Saturday evening we will REJOICE over a wide variety of missional expressions through musical and artistic offerings as we highlight our Mission Imperative: More People More Like Jesus.

We will also join together in celebrating the faithful service of Commissioners Brad and Heidi Bailey as they enter into retirement.

On Sunday we will witness the sacred Ordination and Commissioning of the Reflectors of Holiness Session as the Cadets are ordained as ministers and commissioned to do the work of The Salvation Army with their new rank of Lieutenant. The weekend will conclude as we all witness the Lieutenants being given their first appointment and sent out to be Officers in His great Army.
