Captains Matthew & Marisa McCluer - Corps Officers
The Salvation Army is led by officers — ordained ministers — who supervise the many programs and services provided in your area. They also serve as administrators, counselors and youth leaders.
Captains Matthew and Marisa McCluer have been the Corps Officers of the St. Louis, Gateway Citadel Corps in the Mighty Midland Division since June 2021. Captains Matt and Marisa were commissioned with the ‘Friends of Christ’ Session in 2012 serving first at corps (church) appointments in Kansas. Before moving to St. Louis, they were based in Minneapolis, MN from 2019-2021 as the Divisional Youth and Candidate Secretaries of the Northern Division, encompassing Minnesota and North Dakota. They have three children.
