“My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:2-3)

The purpose of the Personnel Department is to come alongside the cadets and their families as they:

  • Learn to embrace life in a community
  • Affirm biblical standards
  • Aspire to engage Christian disciplines at the College for Officer Training.

Our goal is to assist the cadet, along with the other departments of the college, to live, study, worship, and work together in an educational environment within a Community. The Personnel Department offers guidance, comfort, support; advocacy, counseling, and correction when needed as cadets seek to grow in wisdom, grace, academic excellence, and relational holiness.

The Personnel Department seeks to assist the cadets to know God as well as know themselves, and begin to understand and fulfill their mission in life through The Salvation Army. Our approach is holistic in that we aim to care for the total person; addressing their spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physical needs. The Department has three main sections: General Personnel, Health and Wellness, and Campus Ministries.
