Today Major John enrolled 4 new soldiers and 5 new members out of the students from my last membership class. People have different opinions on whether or not official church membership matters. I was brought up in a very "loose" church when it came to membership. I have come to respect the process of becoming a member during my time with The Salvation Army. The thing I like the best, from a ministry perspective, is that these are the people that are standing up to say "count me in...I'm here to be involved."
I love that.
