Salvation Army Kimball Conservatory Graduation
and Messengers of Light Candidates' Farewell
Camp Grandview ~ July 12, 2014 Share


Camp Grandview in Jasper, Georgia has served as a camp and retreat center for The Salvation Army in the state of Georgia since 1948. Last year, more than 1,850 children from Georgia attended the the camp.

In 1986, a conservatory to study music and the arts began with a one week camp for children ages 7-12 and a four week camp for ages 13-17. They study brass instruments, piano or creative arts, as well as classes in music theory and chorus. The photos and video are a portion of the graduation program.

Also, part of the program was a Farewell to the 17 Messenger of Light Candidates as they start School for Officer Training in August 2014. Salvation Army Officers bring hope and practical help to humanity as they share the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ.

The Salvation Army was started in 1865 by William Booth, an ordained Methodist minister. Along with his wife Catherine, an evangelical group formed that was dedicated to preaching among the 'unchurched' people living in poverty in London's East End. Feeding and shelter of the hungry and rehabilitation of alcoholics became part of the mission. Today, the outreach includes more than 126 nations around the world and the Gospel preached in over 160 languages.

MISSION STATEMENT: The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
