Here at National Headquarters we’ve already had the opportunity to welcome Commissioners Roberts with a special chapelĀ  and welcome lunch. For those of you who haven’t had the chance to meet them yet, we can tell you they’re an extremely friendly and personable couple that we’re excited to have join us!

As officers of The Salvation Army they’ve served all over the world – most recently in Kenya and before that London, England and South America, in addition to some cities in the United States. We’ve already heard a few fascinating anecdotes about their work within communities across the globe and they’ve assured us we’ll hear more.

We’re confident that Commissioners Roberts will be excellent leaders, not just because of their broad perspective and experience, but also because of their evident love for people. If you’re available Friday evening we definitely recommend tuning in to their installation service.
