The Salvation Army Announces New Leadership in Bremerton
Captains Dana & Lance Walters to lead social services, church, and more
(Bremerton, WA) – The Salvation Army Northwest Division announces the appointment of Captains Dana and Lance Walters to its location in Bremerton. They replace Majors Scott and Cherilee Ramsey, who have been appointed to The Salvation Army in Mesa, AZ.
For the past 6 years, Captains Walters have served at The Salvation Army in Alaska in both Juneau and Fairbanks. In June 2013, they graduated from The Salvation Army Officer Training College in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.
As Salvation Army officers, the Captains expect to be reassigned throughout their careers. The commitment of being an officer includes moving your family frequently, and accepting reassignments based on career development and filling the needs of Salvation Army locations. The assignment in Bremerton is an acknowledgement of their ability to manage a large social services program and growing congregation.
They began work in Bremerton on June 26. “We are looking forward to working alongside the Bremerton Salvation Army as they assist the community. Our passion is to serve the homeless, so we are very excited to be appointed to Bremerton!” Captain Walters said.
Established in 1920, The Salvation Army in Bremerton provides social services to families in need. Among the programs offered are emergency utility assistance, eviction prevention, food and nutrition programs, veterans services, and emergency disaster services. Last year, The Salvation Army in Bremerton served more than 5,600 individuals in the community.
