Salvation Army’s international leader to visit Augusta this week

General André Cox, the international leader of The Salvation Army, will visit Augusta later this week to celebrate the international movement’s 125th anniversary.

Cox will be the special guest as well as keynote speaker at the 4th Annual Doing The Most Good Dinner, which is scheduled for coming Thursday, March 31st, in the Garden City.

During the event at the Kroc Center in the city, the Salvation Army will also present its esteemed “Doing The Most Good Award.” More than a decade ago, Joan Kroc made a generous donation of $1.5 billion to international movement, allowing it to provide a range of cultural, educational, fitness and social programs in deprived neighborhoods.

London, England-based General Cox leads The Salvation Army, which serves in more than 125 countries around the globe. It has a total of 13,826 local units with nearly 26,680 officers and 108,786 employees.

Mr. Cox’s wife, Commissioner Silvia Cox, is the World President of Women’s Ministries. The couple together leads the Salvation Army ministry worldwide.

In his early years with the Salvation Army, Mr. Cox held appointments in countries like Switzerland and Zimbabwe. More recently he served as the movement’s territorial commander in the Southern Africa Territory, the Finland and the U.K Territory with the Republic of Ireland.
