Two Salvation Army officers reassigned to Chicago area

FLINT — After serving in Flint for three years, Captains Caleb and Stephanie Senn have been reassigned within the ranks of The Salvation Army.

In their new roles, the Senns will serve as the ecumenical and administrative leaders for The Salvation Army’s work in DuPage County Illinois. The Salvation Army in DuPage County is headquartered in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, a western suburb of Chicago.

The Senns came to Flint in June 2015 after serving with The Salvation Army for ten years in metropolitan Detroit. During their time in Flint they have bolstered program aspects while leading a strategic planning effort with the local Advisory Board and Sheppard Consulting. The strategic plan, which rolled out in 2017, is focused on the Pathway of Hope initiative which helps to bring families to a place of self-sufficiency. The Senns have also been essential in leading efforts for the 125th anniversary of The Salvation Army in Flint which took place just a few weeks ago. The Senns greatest joy in Flint has been their opportunity to serve in a pastoral role at the Flint Citadel Corps.

“We are confident that our team of gifted personnel, soldiers, volunteers, and Advisory Board members will seamlessly carry on the groundbreaking efforts that have taken place over the past three years. The Salvation Army in Flint will continue to do the most good for those in need in our community.” said Captain Caleb Senn.

The new leaders for Genesee County will be Majors Randall and Kathleen Hellstrom who come from leadership roles within The Salvation Army’s Western Division headquartered in Omaha, NE. — G.G.
