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 Andy Westrupp. He took up his appointment in January 2017. Second in command is Colonel Willis Howell.
The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga Territory has its Territorial Headquarters in Wellington, New Zealand.
Commissioners Andy and Yvonne are the joint denominational leaders for The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga Territory.
As Territorial Commander, Commissioner Andy Westrupp is Chair of the Territorial Governance Board. As Chief Secretary, Colonel Willis Howell is Chair of the Territorial Management Board.
In addition, a number of regionally-based management operations direct the localised work of the Army in New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
There are also four nationally-managed social service programmes: Addictions, Supportive Accommodation and Reintegration Services (managed from Auckland); Education and Employment (managed from Wellington); and Social Housing (managed from Wellington).
