Te Ōhākī Strategic Mission Plan

A living document breathing life into The Salvation Army’s ongoing journey of bicultural partnership.

In 2015, the Territorial Māori Ministry Council presented Salvation Army leadership with a proposal for a strategic plan casting a vision of what the Army’s engagement with tangata whenua could look like over the next 10 years. The plan also aims to strengthen Māori Salvationists as disciples of Jesus Christ and co-workers in the Army’s spiritual mission in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The strategy has the deeply symbolic name 'Te Ōhākī', translated as a person’s final wishes before death. The intention is to connect the Māori Ministry strategy with the ōhākī of Jesus Christ to ‘go forth and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit’ (Matthew 28:19).
