“Now we want to bring that excitement home. While we do not anticipate crowds of that magnitude, we are looking forward to reaching as many people as possible as we celebrate our faith and praise our Lord.”

“The Salvation Army is well known for our social ministries which stems from our belief of “Heart to God – Hand to Man”. First and foremost we are a strong vibrant evangelical Church therefore this weekend is all about strengthening our faith so that we can better serve God and our fellow man.

“We have a steering committee and 10 sub committees helping to organize this weekend, I’m pleased to have 2 representatives with me today, Brian Fubler and Calvin Ming. Brian will give a little glimpse of what the weekend will look like:

“Our congress will take place mainly at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess November 12 – 15. It will be preceded by the congress kick-off on the steps of the City Hall Thursday, November 12 at noon. There’s something for everyone and we will be placing special attention on the youth during our Boundless Celebration on the grounds of the City Hall and a Youth Bash at North Street Citadel on Saturday.
