How Salvation Army leadership works

  • The General, with the International headquarters in London, is the international leader of The Salvation Army.
  • In the United States, the functions of The Salvation Army are coordinated by the National Commander, whose office is at the National Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia.
  • For administrative purposes, the nation is divided into four territories: the Central with headquarters in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, the Eastern with headquarters in West Nyack, New York, the Southern with headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Western with headquarters in Long Beach, California.
  • Each territory is under the leadership of a territorial commander.
  • Territories are made up of units known as divisions (there are 40 in the United States and each is headed by a divisional commander).
  • Divisions consist of corps centers for worship and service, which are the basic units of The Salvation Army, and various specialized centers. The functions of each corps include religious and social services which are adapted to local needs.
  • Each corps is under the supervision of a corps officer.
