Territorial Headquarters

Throughout The Salvation Army each country (or cluster of countries) is structured as a 'territory' or a 'command', with one person appointed territorial/command leader by the General.

The leader (territorial commander) of The Salvation Army in New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga is Commissioner Robert Donaldson. He took up his appointment in November 2013. Second in command is Colonel Willis Howell.

The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga Territory has its territorial headquarters in Wellington, New Zealand.

Management structure

Operating under the Territorial Commander is the Cabinet, a centralised management team. An extended form of the Cabinet is the Territorial Coordination Council, which provides further leadership.

A number of regionally-based management operations direct the localised work of the Army in New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

There are also three nationally-managed social service programmes: Addictions, Supportive Accommodation and Reintegration Services (managed from Auckland), Education and Employment (managed from Wellington) and HomeCare (managed from Hamilton).
