Ready to Serve in Salisbury, MD

Shawn Angel Simmons Family

The Salvation Army in Salisbury is pleased to welcome new Corps Officers, Capt. Angel & Lt. Shawn Simmons and their family. The Simmons’ are eager to settle into their new surroundings and are looking forward to getting to know the community and continuing the work of The Salvation Army.

Salvation Army Officers are periodically transferred to different locations, typically every three to four years. The Simmons’ are enthusiastic and dynamic leaders and come to Salisbury from Suffolk, VA, where for the last 3 years they were responsible for The Salvation Army programs and services for that area.

Capt. Angel Simmons, born and raised in a deeply religious family, developed a strong sense of spirituality at an early age. She pursued her theological studies at Evangeline Booth College for Officer’s Training and was ordained as a pastor at the age of 21, Angel has since devoted herself to wherever the Lord leads her in ministry. Her husband Lt. Shawn completed his theological studies at Evangeline Booth College for Officer’s Training and is also an ordained pastor. He has a passion for ministry to men, working with youth, seniors, multimedia presentations and engaging his congregation through various digital platforms. Together they are proud parents of 3 daughters. Their family life brings immense joy and fulfillment, providing a solid foundation for their pastoral journey.

“We look forward to meeting the needs of this community and continuing programs alongside the staff, volunteers and supporters of The Salvation Army” said Capt. Angel.

“Many people don’t realize that The Salvation Army is a church,” said Lt. Shawn, “We invite everyone to join us for Worship each Sunday at 11:00am, at The Salvation Army, located at 407 Oak Street, here in Salisbury. We look forward to meeting you soon!”

A casual meet & greet will take place on July 11, 2023, from 1-3pm in the Administrative office at The Salvation Army at 407 Oak Street, Salisbury, MD 21804. Stop in meet the new officer and enjoy light refreshments.
