Junior Soldiers

Junior Soldiers is an awesome and exciting ministry.  The Leaders are on a journey with their Junior Soldiers guiding them, helping them, picking them up when they stumble. 

Junior Soldiership is a lifestyle, not a program. It is an opportunity for children to explore God's Word themselves and apply His truth to their lives. Junior Soldiers are junior members of The Salvation Army. They are children who have made a decision to be a follower of Jesus and want to grow and express their faith through ministry within The Salvation Army.

How do children become Junior Soldiers? 
Before they become a Junior Soldier, they will participate in five sessions of Junior Soldier preparation. These lessons are based on the Junior Soldier promise. Having completed the preparation lessons and made a decision to become a follower of Jesus, they may be enrolled as a Junior Soldier of The Salvation Army. This is done in the main worship service. When a Junior Soldier signs their Junior Soldier Promise, they are presented with a Junior Soldier Badge. Throughout the program they will stand with the support of their Big Buds/Discipleship Partner. The Big Buds/Discipleship Partner is a person of the Junior Soldier's choosing who promises to pray for their Junior Soldier at least five times a week, taking special interest in their spiritual development.

The material is very adaptable, and can be used within a Kids Church setting as well.
