Please read all guidelines and requirements carefully before you complete this application.
What is Summer Mission Team? Summer Mission Team (SMT)
is a leadership development program that invites young people into a deeper
relationship with the Lord through participation in a team missions
experience. While the teams minister
with The Salvation Army overseas or throughout the Midwest they are given the opportunity to discover
God’s plan for all people to be part of His Kingdom. Summer Mission Team members also benefit from
gaining a broader perspective of The Salvation Army. In 2018 there will be three types of summer teams - overseas teams, a central team, and CAST (Creative Arts Service Team). All applicants will complete the same application, but those interested in CAST will be required to submit additional application materials and a video audition at a later date. (The Territorial Music & Gospel Arts Department will be in contact with CAST applicants directly to communicate these requirements.)
