There are more than 300 centers for worship and service throughout the 13 western states. Using a military metaphor, each "corps" is a place of worship which conducts church services and seeks to meet the spiritual needs of a regular community of worshippers.

It is a center of program activity for youth, adults and seniors. It is a place where all can gather to find the riches of God's love in material assistance, spiritual growth and/or Christian fellowship. Those in attendance are a cross section of any given community with regard to age, gender, income level, racial or ethnic background.

Each corps is represented in the community through a volunteer advisory board. This appointed group of distinguished local citizens advises the corps leadership on program issues and assists in coordinating the the Army's local response to other agencies and governmental entities in the community.
