Commissioners Janine and Robert Donaldson arrived in Australia in July 2019 to lead the newly united Territory and embed the Australia One strategy across the nation. On 1 December 2018, The Salvation Army became a unified movement in Australia, after having operated as two independent territories for 97 years. The objectives to bring the two former territories together were to have an aligned vision, united voice, greater impact, increased innovation, stronger partnerships and better stewardship for the communities that we serve across Australia.

After three years of service, they finish their appointment with the confidence that the season ahead will be one of consolidation under the leadership of Lieutenant-Colonel Miriam Gluyas.​

“I am immensely grateful to both Janine and Robert for their leadership and kindness over these days. What a journey it has been! So many wonderful stories of what God is up to, and so many more to come. These are urgent and exciting days. How I thank God for you! Big gospel. Big God. Believing with you for a magnificent future, as we continue the journey together. Faith and hope are rising,” Miriam said.
