The academic component of the College for Officer Training, USA Eastern Territory, seeks to provide a challenging learning environment in which intellectual capacity, spiritual development and practical ministry experience are balanced. This aims to create a foundation and desire for life-long learning and continual development of ministry skills. Instrumental to this interdependence of classroom, community and field is an instructional staff comprised of qualified practitioners and credentialed academics, all sharing a common faith in Christ and working in partnership.
By successfully engaging in the learning experience of the CFOT, cadets will be commissioned and ordained as Salvation Army officers. Spiritually mature and academically and practically prepared, they will faithfully engage in mission to a hurting world by living for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.
