Ten Junior Soldiers Enrolled at Hampton Roads Kroc Center


By: Karen Yoho

After six weeks of thorough Bible study, providing service to their community, and learning the doctrines and history of The Salvation Army, ten Junior Soldiers were enrolled at The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Kroc Corps and Community Center on December 3, 2023.

The Junior Soldiers recited their promise to God, and were installed by Major Bobby and Captain Nicole Parker, divisional youth secretaries for the Potomac Division, supported by Area Commanders Majors Chris and Sandy Flanagan, Senior Kroc Officer Captain Ruth Cancia, and Captain Shimei Hewitt, officer for congregational life. Family members and faithful supporters prayed with the new Junior Soldiers at the altar, and Captain Cancia covered them all with a special prayer to bless these new members of The Salvation Army and the next steps of their spiritual journey.

Guiding the Junior Soldiers, ages 7 to 11, in their studies were Stacey Adkins-Bond, the corps youth evangelism and outreach director, and Theresa Adkins, administrative assistant at the Kroc Center. Captain Hewitt said, "We congratulate these young members of our church and thank Mrs. Stacey Adkins-Bond and Ms. Theresa Adkins for faithfully preparing these children through their studies."

"With these ten newest Junior Soldiers, the future of the Army will be great," Captain Hewitt continued. "And who knows, we may have the future General of The Salvation Army among them! God bless the General, God bless The Salvation Army, and God bless The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command Kroc Center."
