On Saturday, June 25, 11 Salvation Army officers were commissioned and ordained with the rank of lieutenant. Led by Commissioner William W. Francis, territorial commander, the ceremony recognized their calling to serve as spiritual leaders in The Salvation Army.
In attendance was General Linda Bond, international leader of The Salvation Army. Although not present in an official capacity, General Bond wished to offer her support to her niece, newly commissioned Lieutenant Jaclyn Wynne.
On Sunday, June 26, Salvationists will gather for a public worship service at 10:30 a.m. and then a retirement service for Commissioners William and Marilyn Francis at 3 p.m., which will be led by Commissioners Norman and Marion Howe. Both of these events can be viewed on our live webcast (click here).
A full report will be posted following the conclusion of the commissioning weekend, but here are selected photos from the Saturday event.
