Our Leaders

Operations of The Salvation Army are supervised by trained, commissioned officers. They serve as administrators, teachers, social workers, counselors, youth leaders, and musicians. Officers dedicate their lives, skills and service to the communities in which they are placed and we couldn't be more excited to welcome our new officers to Asheville.

Information on our officers coming soon...
