Territorial Strategic Mission Plan (2013-2016)


After the success of TSMP: The Next Chapter, Salvationists and staff were invited to participate in a range of surveys in late 2012 to help decide the best way forward. Of the 2,500 people who participated, most agreed that TSMP had helped The Salvation Army be considerably more effective, and they wanted TSMP to continue.
A range of suggestions were received as to how the plan might be improved going forward. Having listened to the feedback, a new TSMP was launched at Congress in 2013 with three adjustments:

  1. Instead of being something separate, ‘mission-focused’ was to be seen as our preferred way of working in everything we do—the glue that holds the plan together. It was changed from a goal to a way of working.
  2. Senior leadership agreed that leadership development was an even more critical issue than three years earlier, so to ensure it received appropriate focus, it became a goal in its own right.
  3. The goals were shortened to reflect the key phrases people use in every day conversation, with focus words added.
Territorial Strategic Mission Plan 2013 Goals

We continued to source and develop quality resources, and expected all corps, centres and support functions to implement localised plans to support these goals.
