National Commander urges Salvationists to complete Vision Survey

28 February 2017

Commissioner Floyd Tidd says the Vision Survey is an opportunity to have a say on the future of The Salvation Army in Australia.


The National Commander, Commissioner Floyd Tidd, has written to Salvationists and friends across the country, encouraging them to have their say on the future of The Salvation Army in Australia.

In his brief letter, the commissioner writes:

What do you think The Salvation Army should look like into the future? Please have your say at

As we consider Australia One and enabling our mission, our national leaders and the Australia One team have launched an online survey to seek your input to design the Vision.

Throughout Australia One, we continue to focus on listening to God and listening to you. To date, more than 300 people from the Army have participated in Vision conversations and design workshops from across Australia. 

The purpose of this survey is to hear the heartbeat of the Army and to seek input into the design of the future Vision. Results from this survey will help further define the Vision for our new national Army for years to come. We are keen to hear the perspectives of everyone across our movement.

This is an opportunity for you to be involved in the Australia One Vision work and influence our Vision to help define the Army that will significantly impact Australia.

The survey is not linked to individuals to ensure confidentiality. For accessibility reasons multiple entry from one computer is possible.

The online survey closes on Friday 10 March. If you have any access issues or questions, please send an email to Chinese and Korean versions of the online survey will also be available from Wednesday 1 March.







  1. Yes The Salvation army provides guidance and compassion without prejudice no other organisations have committed volunteers community based and the love of god ans humanity. I'm proud to be one.

  2. Not all our friends, adherents and soldiers will be able to partcipate in this survey.
    Therefore the expected wide and varied overview; will actually be skewed.
    Those who are older, retired, socially disadvantaged, lack IT connectivity or who are travelling will not possibly participate.
    I look at the local Corps that my mother attends where there would be 15 older Salvationists who dont 'understand or access the online surveys'
    Also country corps and rural australia where this same scenario is repeated. Multiply that by how many Salvationist will not have i put by the deadline

  3. We need to forcus on our youth as they the ones that will make or brake us we need more pulse meeting in our own church we need to publish this as much as we can get the older gen to mix with the young and give them wisdom to grow
