WHAT WE DO

The objective of Salvation Factory is to help foster creativity and innovation in all aspects of Salvation Army life and ministry. We do this through the following avenues:

 

Imagineering Sessions
An Imagineering Session is a strategic process designed to help a select group of people accomplish the following:imageering sessions

  • Imagine and refine creative and innovative ideas
  • Engineer a strategy for the design and implementation of those ideas

The outcome of the Imagineering Sessions will be seen in multiple ways including the development of innovative and creative programs, resources, events and strategies. Imagineering Sessions can take place in physical [e.g., Brainstorm Room] or virtual [e.g., Skype] environments.

  • An Imagineering Session for projects generated by or assigned to Salvation Factory
