New minister, Kevin Pitt, appointed to lead The Salvation Army in St Albans
A new minister has been appointed to The Salvation Army in St Albans.
Captain Kevin Pitt will lead the corps ministry at the citadel in Victoria Street, after moving to the city from an accountancy position at The Salvation Army’s Territorial Headquarters in London.
Captain Pitt, 51, had previous ministerial appointments at Barton on Humber and Northampton East. His wife Pam is the Commanding Officer of Luton Corps and they have two children and two grandchildren together.
Formerly a qualified accountant with Trust House Forte, Captain Pitt was commissioned as a Salvation Army officer in 2000. He is a fifth generation Salvationist and follows in the footsteps of his grandparents who were long serving Salvation Army ministers.
Captain Pitt said he desperately wanted to return to Corps ministry and is eagerly looking forward to working with all age groups and extending the church’s community outreach.
He said: "It’s important that we share what we are doing and make the gospel accessible in a range of different ways.
"I think we have to continue to build links with the community here in St Albans, reaching out and sharing the good news with people of all ages and backgrounds."
