EBC Cadets aim for mission and ministry with 2021 Spring Campaigns
In early to mid-March, Cadets from the Evangeline Booth College ventured to six communities for 2021 Spring Campaigns. The cadets were split into six mission and ministry teams, led by EBC officers, with the goal to provide cadets with field work in preparation for future ministry as Salvation Army officers. In addition, these campaigns aim to encourage the field and advance the kingdom of God in the communities in which they are sent.
“The response from the cadets was incredible,” said Captain Joshua Hinson, EBC director of field training. “Each team shared their testimonies in a reflection and celebration meeting after Spring Campaigns. During that meeting, we celebrated, as a campus, God’s faithfulness to us and the corps during the campaigns.”
During their campaigns, cadets participated in local corps programming tailored to those particular communities. That included food distributions, work projects, visitation and administrative meetings.
“The locations also responded positively,” Captain Hinson said. “Some of the Corps Officers noted how excited they are for the future of the Army based on the hearts and the ministry of the cadets they encountered. Most importantly, lives were transformed as the teams testified of people giving their lives to Jesus as a result of their ministry.”
