Evangeline Booth College
1032 Metropolitan Pkwy SW, Atlanta, GA 30310

Approximately 100 students attend this private seminary. Through a two-year program, it trains theMore next generation of ministers for the Salvation Army. Named after Evangeline Cory Booth, the fourth general of the Salvation Army and the founders' seventh child, the college is one of four Army colleges in the United States.

With separate on-campus living arrangements for single men, single women and families, Evengeline Booth College serves the 15 southern states and the District of Columbia. With a core curriculum that includes Bible studies, social work, business management and physical education courses, the college addresses the spiritual, financial and physical well-being of its future officers.

Also, housed on the campus is the School For Continuing Education, which provides officers with additional training in areas such as leadership, counseling and Bible teaching to help them stay abreast of any changes in the ministry. For newly commissioned officers, the school offers a five-year program; for local and auxiliary officers, it provides periodic seminars.

Still, perhaps one of the most interesting features on the campus is the Pilgrimage to Discovery, the Salvation Army Museum of the South. With a theater for viewers to see a short film on the Army and its early work in London, the museum also chronicles the time line of the first officers.
