MOST GOOD
A/CAPTAINS
Ken & Jessie Chapman
2014 was a year of challenges and
opportunities for The Salvation Army in
Jackson, Mississippi. On January 3, our Family
Store and warehouse burned to the ground.
That fire resulted in a loss of over $459,000 in
revenue. We experienced fund-raising issues,
staff displacement challenges, and a severe
cut back in a key federal grant. But, even with
those challenges, God has been so faithful to
us! His mercies are unending and His favor
rests upon us.
Not one staff member lost an hour of work
during the fire recovery. Through insurance
proceeds and generous donations from the community, we now have a new 10,000 sq
ft Family Store and an 18,000 sq ft Distribution Center. God proved Himself, once
again, by giving us larger and more efficient facilities to serve our community. We are
identifying new sources of support and income for our mission. The Mississippi Poultry
Association, through Governor Phil Bryant, donated over 60,000 pounds of poultry
products to feed the hungry. We set a Guinness world record at the MS Braves game in
August; conducted evangelistic campaigns that resulted in hundreds giving their lives to
Jesus Christ; and we served over 4400 angels during the holiday season. A highlight of
the season was the Most Incredible Christmas as we partnered with Ballet Magnificat. For
the Saturday night showing, over 1000 of our Angel Tree families attended as our guests;
people who could not afford to attend a show at Thalia Mara Hall, must less be exposed
to a ballet. It was a magical time as we were able to see the awe and wonder on the faces
of those special guests. Many gave their lives to Christ as an altar call was given that
evening. A new tradition has been established and lives were forever changed!
Our focus in this Command is to teach and preach the saving grace of Jesus Christ and
to alleviate human suffering in His Name. We are working diligently to break the multigenerational cycles of poverty and sin by loving and teaching people a way out. We are
moving people from a sense of entitlement to a sense of empowerment! A hand out is a
compassionate thing, but a hand UP is an act of transformational ministry.
We thank God for the privilege of serving in this great community. We know we are in
the perfect will of God and our worst day in the greater Jackson area is still one of the
BEST days of our lives. We thank each of you who care, support, encourage, donate,
love, and uplift those in our community who are in need. May God richly bless you as we
continue to march against poverty and sin and claim Jackson for Jesus!
Yours for “Others,”
Ken & Jessie Chapman, A/Captains

MISSION
The Salvation Army, an international movement,
is an evangelical part of the universal Christian
Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its
ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its
mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ
and to meet human needs in His name without
discrimination.
NO ONE
has ever become
poor by giving.
Each member of our Advisory Board and Women’s Auxiliary make
up what we call the “army behind the army.” These selfless men and
women volunteer their unique strengths to help better our community.

The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary has had
a tremendous year serving their community. Not
only did they double their fundraising events, they
doubled their donated time and money raised. The
Women’s Auxiliary raises funds through Sprint Mart
angels, SOUPer Bowl silent auction, Kettle Bell
Run 5k, and Kettle Bell Ring. They are currently a
group of 45 women that would love to speak with
anyone interested in joining their mission.

On March 10, 1880, Commissioner George Scott Railton
and seven women officers knelt on the dockside at Battery
Park in New York City to give thanks for their safe arrival.
This was to be their first official street meeting held in the

CENTER OF HOPE
Winter Night Watch
Provides men and women, 18 years
and older, in despair from all walks
of life with the help necessary to turn
their lives around. Housing, intensive
counseling, life skills classes, and jobs,
often associated with The Salvation
Army Thrift Stores, are part of this
program. Last year, The Center of
Hope served 1,031 people. It provided
495 people with Transitional Shelter
and 557 with Emergency Shelter.
When temperatures reach below 25 degrees, our canteen hits the streets to
distribute warm food and drinks, blankets, hats, coats, and spiritual support to
the homeless.
New Start Program
Education and stability to help get
people, including those just out of
prison, back in to a productive life

The Salvation Army opened
it’s first night shelter for men
in 1888 at 21 West India
Dock Road in Limehouse,
London. Some of the shelter
occupants could hope to
get employment in factories,
which Salvationists called,
Elevators, because they
were to elevate the moral
character and the self-respect
and capacity of the destitute
people.
Life skills classes
Teaching good choices, money
management, relationships, parenting,
being responsible
Celebrate Recovery
Counseling and restoration to recover
The Learning Center
GED classes open to anyone 17 years
and up
In addition, the Center of Hope opens it’s doors to anyone needing relief from
freezing temperatures. The homeless shelter is equipped with cots to ensure
every person who comes in has a warm place to sleep, even if every room is
full.
FAMILY STORES
JACKSON & PEARL, MS
In a very real sense, The Salvation
Army Family Stores are at the heart
of the mission of The Salvation
Army. They are much more than
meets the eye.
When you donate goods to The
Salvation Army, men and women in
our Work Therapy program collect
those items, sort them, and organize
them on racks to be sold in our
Family Stores. This allows them to
regain self-esteem and learn valuable
vocational skills all while saving
money to one day live a successful life
on their own.
Shopping on a budget is another perk
of our Family Stores. The community
is able to find clean, gently-used, and
brand new items for very affordable
prices and the proceeds from every
purchase are used to fund the
programs at the Center of Hope.
Items in our Family Store are also
given to those who are burned out,
kicked out, and fallen out free of
charge to help them get back on their
feet. Our Family Stores are powered
by the cycle that keeps on giving every donation and purchase makes a
life-changing difference!

Brad McMullan
Advisory Board President
Dear friends,
Thank you so much for your continued
support of the ministry of the Salvation
Army of Jackson. Because of your generous
support, people in need have a place to turn.
Not for a hand out, but for a hand up.
This last year, our ministry faced many
challenges. A massive fire destroyed our
thrift store, creating new financial obstacles,
that none of us could have predicted. Our
state was again hit hard by severe weather, most recently just two days before
Christmas. Despite all of the challenges, thanks to your continued prayers,
financial support and volunteer efforts, the Salvation Army has once again
been able to meet the needs of those who needed it the most.
In 2015, we are preparing to serve more people than ever! Last year we set
records for our summer programs and our community center continues to
grow with events for senior adults and programs to help struggling families.
Our sanctuary is packed every Sunday, as people from all over our community
come to worship our Risen Savior. None of this would be possible without
God’s favor and your continued support.
This ministry’s focus is to Glorify God in all we do, by being a good steward of
your time and money. Our goal has been to break the cycle of poverty by not
only meeting the immediate need (food, shelter or financial support) but also
by encouraging people with accountability. When people land new jobs, we
give thanks to God. When people are given the counseling and encouragement
to become responsible, we give thanks to God. When people who struggle
with addiction, break away and move forward, we give thanks to God. When
people get a diploma when they never thought it was possible, we give thanks
to God! Last but not least, when people discover the grace and love of God,
we celebrate the eternal victory!
I am honored and humbled to serve as the chairman of the Salvation Army’s
Advisory Board. On this board, I get the opportunity to serve with some
of the most amazing and gifted people from all walks of life. As the board
chairman, I get a front row seat to life change. I get to see how God uses the
Salvation Army to transform lives and bring hope in some of the darkest of
times.
I can’t say enough about Captain Ken Chapman, his wife and his entire staff.
They have all made the sacrifice to leave their careers to answer a higher calling.
They make less and work more, because they understand the need in our
community is great. Please continue to support the mission of answering the
call when any disaster strikes.
If you already support this ministry, from the bottom of my heart I thank
you. If you are looking for an organization to support, I can assure you this
ministry will continue to have the highest level of accountability to make sure
every last dime you give will be used to do the most good.
God Bless you and may God continue to bless the Salvation Army!
Sincerely,
Brad McMullan

BREAKING THE CYCLE
BUILDING LIVES
S.M.A.R.T. PROGRAM
Saving Money and Resource Training
The Jackson Corps has partnered with BankPlus to implement a financial
education and training program which mentors Angel Tree clients every month.
BankPlus employees teach clients how to save money and budget for their
families. As an incentive to save, BankPlus matches each client’s monthly saving
deposit of $10. In December, Angel Tree parents see the benefits of their savings
as they are able to buy Christmas gifts for their children and move off of the
Angel Tree program.
CREDIT PLUS
TORNADO OUTBREAK | Louisville & Pearl, MS
At least nine devastating tornadoes ripped through Mississippi at the end of April
2014. Surrounding states were also affected by the storms. The Jackson Corps served
lunch and dinner daily during recovery in Pearl, Mississippi and sent a canteen to
Louisville, Mississippi for several days of support after an E4 tornado ruined most of
the town. The Salvation Army served 23,325 meals and 31,396 drinks, sheltered 387
people, and gave emotional or spiritual support to 572.
FAMILY STORE FIRE
Jackson, MS
Friday, January 3rd, 2014 at around
6:00 a.m. we experienced our own
disaster - our Family Store in Jackson,
MS caught fire. The fire spread
throughout the entire building,
destroying everything the building
entailed. Within two weeks, the
community and our outstanding
business partners filled a 100,000
square-foot donated building with
donations. So many donations
that not a single Family Store staff
member lost an hour of work. God
truly made “beauty from ashes”.
Within nine months a new 10,000 sq
ft Family store opened on the same
lot accompanied by a 18,000 sq ft
donation center.
13
In 2008 BankPlus launched a small dollar loan program called CreditPlus. This
program helps individuals that are caught up in the Pay Day Lending cycle
or would like to join the banking mainstream with re-established credit. The
Salvation Army has been a great partner in the effort. Over the last three years
we have opened our doors each month to hold a Financial Literacy Seminar
taught by BankPlus personnel. Thirty Seminars have been held in our facility
with over 1,200 people attending. This ongoing partnership is helping make
an impact on the credit worthiness of Salvation Army employees, families they
assist in other ways and the community at large.

Why W.A.I.T.
Worthy Actions Intentional Thinking
ANGEL TREE PROGRAM
Flight to the North Pole
In conjunction with the Mississippi Air National Guard and Y101, The Salvation
Army Jackson Corps invites 60 Angel Tree children and their parents to join
them on a Flight to the North Pole. Everyone is seated on an Air Force C-17
Globemaster III while they sing Christmas carols in anticipation for their take off
to the North Pole. In reality, the plane simulates a flight by picking up speed on the
ground and driving around to the North Pole inside the Mississippi Air National
Guard’s 172nd Airlift Wing. When they arrive, the large door opens to Santa,
Mrs. Clause, and a workshop full of elves, a snowflake man, and other imaginary
Christmas characters welcoming the children. The children are each assigned an elf
to play with for the night at various, fun stations - the last stop being Santa, who
gives each child a bike, helmet, and bag full of toys.
The Most Incredible
Christmas with
Ballet Magnificat
The Salvation Army teamed
up with Ballet Magnificat, a
premier professional Christian
ballet company committed
to presenting the gospel of
Jesus Christ through dance,
to bring a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to families on the
Angel Tree program. Every family was invited
to attend Ballet Magnificat’s performance
of the Most Incredible Christmas at Thalia
Mara Hall for free. The ballet even included
a portion all about The Salvation Army.
These families got to watch an outstanding
performance that most have never been able
to afford to see followed by an alter call that
was life-changing for many.
150 years In spite of violence and
persecution, some 250,000 people were
converted under the ministry of The
Salvation Army between 1881 and 1885.
The Salvation Army’s specially
designed Why W.A.I.T.
Program is held two times
annually to support Governor
Bryant’s Healthy Teens Teen Pregnancy Prevention
Program. The four week
program engages boys and
girls, 9th through 12th grades
that are lead in “true talk”
concerning their health,
relationships, and actions. The
Why W.A.I.T. Program allows
teens to hear each other, talk
through worthy actions and
intentional thinking, and
discuss the results.
Dear Friends,
It is one of my greatest pleasures to serve
as a member of the Advisory Board for
The Salvation Army of Jackson. For many
years I have seen the tremendous work that
has been done by this organization. I have
witnessed firsthand how lives have been
changed and needs have been met in our
community.
I believe we are called to help those in
need and to support those less fortunate.
I agree with Captain Ken Chapman's
stance on helping those who want a hand
up, not a hand out. "Breaking the CycleBuilding Lives" is a vision that is bringing
real change to our community as The
Salvation Army of Jackson is holding people
accountable and giving them a real vehicle
for change. Through many of the programs
of the Jackson Corps, generations of
Mississippians will learn how to lead fulfilled
lives of purpose.
As Governor, I will continue to support the
efforts of Captain Chapman as he strives
to make real change in our community.
Through the opening of the new Corps
Community Center, thousands of families
have been given opportunities to experience
life as never before as they enter into
programs that will spur academic excellence,
healthy lifestyles and cultural enrichment.
Deborah and I congratulate The Salvation
Army on the work done in our communities
and we pray God’s best on all that the Army
is doing to make our community a better
place for all.

Talent
The Salvation Army is always looking to partner with individuals that are
committed to strengthening our army by offering their services. Maybe
you even have a passion that you are not able to fulfill in your daily work.
Whatever your talent, The Salvation Army can teach you how your skills
can work towards helping others. Call us today! We would love to sit
down with you to see how we can work together to make our community
stronger using your educational background and God-given talents.
Treasures
The Salvation Army could not operate without the gifts we receive from
individuals and companies. There are many forms of treasure that go a
long way here at The Salvation Army. Monetary and stock donations, gifts
in-kind, a gift in your will, and gently used or new items for our Family
Store are just a few ways you can help us continue to serve thousands 365
days a year. As always, 82 percent of every donation goes directly back into
our programs.

“While Women weep, as they do
now, I’ll fight; while children go
hungry, as they do now I’ll fight;
while men go to prison, in and
out, in and out, as they do now,
I’ll fight; while there is a poor
lost girl upon the streets, while
there remains one dark soul
without the light of God, I’ll
fight, I’ll fight to the very end!”
- William Booth’s final speech, 1912
