Meet our Area Commanders: Majors Jim and Deborah Rickard

Majors Jim and Deborah Rickard arrived in Winston-Salem on January 2, 2019, along with their daughter, Chelsea. They are no strangers to the Triad, having served as Corps Officers in High Point. Major Jim also worked for a time for The Salvation Army right here in Winston, so this appointment as Area Commanders is a homecoming of sorts for them.

The Rickards have served as officers in five field commands throughout the southeastern U.S. and four headquarters appoints in Dallas, TX, Baltimore, MD, Jackson, MS., and Atlanta.

Their main mission is to introduce people to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to be good examples of Christian leaders within the community they serve.
