Our Local Leadership

Majors Jeffrey and Cindy Strickler

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. At the Austin Salvation army, Major Sandra Hunt and Lieutenant Gloria Pelayo are your primary point of contacts for questions, comments or requests for assistance. Ever wonder why our officers wear uniforms? Discover why today.
