Salvation Army-Springfield puts new leaders in place

Posted online

The Salvation Army-Springfield has new leading officers after its former majors took new posts.

Majors Butch and Lisa Frost took office this week, leading the Salvation Army chapter with 69 employees and a 2017 operating budget of $3 million, according to a news release and Springfield Business Journal list research.

They succeed Majors Mike and Judy Mills, who moved from Chicago in summer 2014 to lead Salvation Army-Springfield. The husband and wife relocated to Salvation Army’s territorial headquarters in Chicago, where they’re now serving as head of pastoral care.

The Frosts come to Springfield from Roseville, Minnesota, where Salvation Army operates its northern division headquarters. There, they were divisional secretary and divisional secretary for programs, according to the release.

Last year, the social service nonprofit locally raised $1.6 million and had over 3,400 volunteers, according to SBJ list research. Salvation Army-Springfield ranked ninth on SBJ’s list this year of the area’s largest nonprofits by number of local employees.

Salvation Army’s programs include providing food, clothing and shelter, as well as relief for disasters, according to the release.
