The Salvation Army – Lansing Capital Area is proud to welcome its new officers, Majors Jim and Pat Irvine. The Irvines have been appointed to lead The Salvation Army - Lansing Capital Area effective July 1, 2017. They succeed Majors Kim and Alan Hellstrom.

Now in their 24th year as commissioned officers and ordained pastors of The Salvation Army, the Irvines have served in a variety of assignments throughout the central U.S. including local corps and community centers (pastorates) and administrative positions. Major Pat will serve as the Lansing Citadel Corps and Community Center officer. Major Jim will serve as the Lansing Capital Area Coordinator overseeing The Salvation Army’s tri-county service area (Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties) in addition to its two Lansing locations at 525 N. Pennsylvania Ave. and 701 W. Jolly Road. While the Irvines have a proven track record in administrative leadership, their hearts and passions are deeply rooted in service to local community ministries.

The Irvines have three sons; Nathan is the Director of Youth Evangelism and Discipleship for The Salvation Army in the Chicago Metropolitan Division and is married to Danielle, Doctor of Optometry. They are the proud parents of the Irvine’s first grandchild, Judah Daniel. Jeremy is a recent grad of Purdue University in Criminal Justice and is currently employed as a corrections officer in the Pittsburgh area.
