The Salvation Army in Russia
The Salvation Army began its ministry in Russia in 1913 and recommenced in 1991 after a break of almost 70 years. This ministry focuses on responding to the social needs of the country, as well as the spiritual needs of its congregations and local communities. The Salvation Army is registered in Russia as a Christian religious organization and is present in 14 locations throughout the country.
AS part of a programme linked to the 2018 FIFA World Cup taking place in Russia, a Salvation Army camp brought together more than 50 men from across the country. Based in Moscow, the men's camp took the theme Mission Possible and provided opportunity to learn together and discuss what it is to be Christian men in the 21st century. The main focus was on attitudes towards women.
During the Children's Day in the Salvation Army in Elista and Petrozavodsk, special events for children and youth were held.
From 27 to 29 April 2018 in Moscow there was a conference called "The harvest is great". Candidates, leaders, program leaders were invited to attend. The main goal of the conference was to help people to see their next level of service and understand how to achieve this.
