A spokesperson previously said, “Although the work of the Salvation Army is well known in the islands of Bermuda, we wish to keep to the forefront the ongoing work of the Community and Social Services section of the Salvation Army.

“Through our work in the trenches, we carry out the mission of the Salvation Army in very practical ways and in so doing operationalize the mission to share the love of Jesus Christ, meet human needs and be a transforming influence in the community of our world.”

Frank Pittman, Major, Divisional Commander of the Bermuda Division, said, “The Salvation Army is active in 127 countries, so to have the world leader come to Bermuda is quite an honor and exciting for us.

“Also joining us will be our Territorial Commander for the Canada & Bermuda Territory, Commissioner Susan McMillan, and our Chief Secretary, Colonels Mark and Sharon Tillsley, supported by my wife and I Majors Frank and Rita Pittman.

“2015 marks the 150 anniversary of The Salvation Army as an international movement which began its work in East London by our founder William Booth. It was celebrated with an International Congress in London, England this past July which saw 15,000 Salvationist gather at the O2 Arena, including a contingent of 66 of us from Bermuda.”
