At the end of the week, we will bid farewell to our Area Commanders, Majors Rob and Janine Vincent. They have received their new assignment, which is to command The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Memphis. Although they only spent 4 years with us commanding the Nashville Center of Hope, it felt like we’d known them all of our lives.
We’d like to let the Vincents know how much they will be missed, thus they have been bestowed with “Sally Stars!!” We so appreciate their support for staff no matter the department; no matter the task. The Vincents encourage and empower those they work with allowing ideas to flow and the chance for each employee to utilize their individual gifts. The Vincents listen, no matter what they are involved in, you need to talk or share what’s on your heart or mind, they make themselves available. The Vincents are always open to new ideas, new ways to do things and are incredible at talking things through so all points of view are considered and all scenarios are played out so we arrive at the best way to move forward.
The Vincents, above all love Christ and pour their heart and soul into serving Him first and loving His children as their own. They dedicate long hours and endless days to the mission they committed to over 20 years ago. A mission to be Salvation Army officers and to “meet need in His name without discrimination.” They weep when others weep, they rejoice when others rejoice. They possess compassion, empathy and love for those who may feel like no one cares and strive to be the hands and feet of Christ in everything they do.
We wish them well on their new journey and pray God’s anointing and blessing on every person they work with and every program they manage!
2 Cor 5:5, “Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”
