New Salvation Army Leaders Begin Tenure in Geneva, NY
The Salvation Army announced two new officers to take appointment at their Geneva, NY Corps. Captains Aida and Oscar Rolon assume their new duties February 3. This new appointment is part of regular organizational changes.
Captains Rolon have been with The Salvation Army for 12 years. They have been stationed at the Guayama Ray and Joan Kroc Center in Puerto Rico and Sussex Chapel in Seaford, Delaware. Captains Rolon entered The Salvation Army Training College in 2010 as part of the Friends of Christ Session and call Allentown, PA their home corps. Prior to joining The Salvation Army, Captain Oscar Rolon attended Universal Technical Institute of Puerto Rico and Captain Aida Rolon attended the University of Puerto Rick in Rio Peidras. They both grew up in Loiza, Puerto Rico but have spent much of their adult life in the United States. Captains Rolon have two young adult children together, Kiara and Bryan, both of whom love the Lord and the ministry of The Salvation Army.
Captains Rolon are strong proponents of The Salvation Army ideology to ‘Do the most good’ in the communities they serve and are most looking forward to the community ministry in Geneva and getting to know the people, agencies, and fellow officers. “There are several phenomenal new programs former Captains Martinez laid down for the community and its our prayer the ministry will reach those in need,” said Captain Aida Rolon. “We are thrilled to be joining the Geneva community and eager to build upon our predecessors work.”
The Salvation Army has served people in need for 155 years and is a staple of the Geneva community. “Today, the need is greater than ever, and we look forward to Captains Rolon collaborating with partners, sponsors, volunteers, and community leaders to help Geneva navigate the challenges COVID-19 continues to present,” said Major Ivan Rock, Divisional Commander of The Salvation Army Empire State Division. “We are confident our new captains will support the community on their journey to rebuilding their lives after this challenging time.”
