The Church Army was a group of the Anglican Church founded in 1882 by the Reverend Wilson Carlile. Carlile formed an army of men and women, whom he and others trained as evangelists among the poor and outcasts of the slums. The Church army spread to the United States in the late 1800s. Today volunteers in the United States continue doing social work and evangelizing through addiction centers, jails and prisons, schools, senior centers, hospitals, nursing homes, and housing developments.
