    Video Tribute to General John Gowans

    A moving portrait of the man behind the public persona. April 25, 2013
    The Salvation Army's Video Production Unit, from the United Kingdom Territory with the Republic of Ireland, has created a tribute to General John Gowans, who was promoted to Glory in December 2012. Looking back at the life of the man who led The Salvation Army from 1999-2002, the video includes extracts from his funeral service and clips from the archives such as the General's famous address at the 2000 Millennial Congress in Atlanta, USA, when he spoke of "saving souls, growing saints and serving suffering humanity."

    The feature includes interviews with Commissioner Gisèle Gowans, Retired General John Larsson, Commissioner Norman Howe and Commissioner William Cochrane (International Headquarters). Together they give a sense of the man behind the public persona – poet, preacher, leader and friend.
