After 5 years of service as The Salvation Army’s international leaders, General Shaw Clifton and his wife Commissioner Helen Clifton are retiring! They’ve devoted the last 38 years of their lives serving as Salvation Army officers.
Today The Salvation Army’s High Council, a group of select Salvation Army officers, meets in London to elect a new international leader who will take over for the Cliftons in April.
The High Council will also be streaming a live webcast of the ‘Welcome to the High Council and Retirement Salute to General Shaw Clifton and Commissioner Helen Clifton’ meeting on Saturday, January 22nd.
The action starts at 16.00 GMT (4pm London time), which translates to 11:00 AM EST/10:00am CST for those of us in the United States.
