The 2018 High Council began meeting on May 17, 2018.

A High Council is made up of all active Salvation Army commissioners (except the spouse of the serving General), territorial commanders and territorial presidents of women’s ministries. Its purpose is to prayerfully elect the next international leader of The Salvation Army, who will assume responsibility when General Cox retires at midnight on August 2.

You are invited to pray for these meetings and follow along (even livestream!) on Facebook or on the High Council website.
