Glen Caddy is joining the Salvation Army in Wichita as city commander, the organization has announced.

He transferred from the Salvation Army’s College for Officer Training in Chicago. He will oversee the budget and advise assorted Wichita programs.

He and his wife, Carole, will fill the local position that rotates every three to five years. She will be the officer for program development and chaplain for Wichita.

They are replacing Douglas Rowland and his wife, Janet, who moved to the organization’s Kansas and Western Missouri headquarters in Kansas City, Mo.

The Caddys each have experience working for the Salvation Army in various music and youth programs, as well as with the group’s women’s ministry. The Caddys, who met at a Salvation Army camp, went on to attend Olivet Nazarene University, earning degrees in practical ministry.

Glen Caddy is completing a master’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan University. They have two children serving in the Salvation Army, as well.
