COLUMBIA – Two corps officers from the Arnold Salvation Army transferred Wednesday to Columbia.

Marquis and Twyla Brookins, lieutenants in the Salvation Army Corps, assumed responsibility for the Columbia church's programs.

Salvation Army Regional Coordinator Major K. Kendall Mathews said the Brookins’ primary goal is to provide pastoral care.

Mathews said the Brookins’ responsibilities include providing leadership for Salvation Army Sunday school, Bible study, worship, women's and men’s ministries, older adult services and other seasonal and denominational activities.

“We consider Missouri our home and look forward to using our special gifts in ministry,” Marquis Brookins said.

Marquis and Twyla Brookins were commissioned as Salvation Army officers in 2008.

“They are young, energetic officers who have a lot of potential for leadership and development,” Mathews said. “We would like to think that they were chosen and selected by God to be corps officers at the Columbia center for worship and service.”

The church hosted a luncheon for the Brookins family at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Salvation Army Family Services at 1108 W. Ash St.
