General Brian Peddle and Commissioner Rosalie Peddle

Commissioned and ordained as a Salvation Army officer in 1977 as a member of the Companions of Christ Session, General Brian Peddle has served in partnership with his wife, Commissioner Rosalie Peddle, since their marriage in 1978. Initial service in his home territory of Canada and Bermuda, included corps, divisional and training college appointments.

The General’s first international appointment was to Auckland, in the New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga Territory, as divisional commander. He was transferred to territorial headquarters in the United Kingdom with the Republic of Ireland Territory to serve as chief secretary, with the rank of colonel. A return to the Canada and Bermuda Territory followed in 2011, to take up leadership as territorial commander, with promotion to the rank of commissioner.

Service at International Headquarters initially came on 1 September 2014 as International Secretary for Americas and Caribbean, prior to his appointment as Chief of the Staff on 1 November 2015.

It was on 25 May 2018 that Commissioner Brian Peddle was elected as the 21st General of The Salvation Army, to assume office on 3 August that same year.

Outside of his ministry, the General enjoys kayaking, cycling, hiking and fishing. The General and Commissioner Peddle have two daughters, Stephanie and Krista, as well as five grandchildren.

The General has a strong sense of calling as a Salvation Army officer, fueled by his conviction that God continues to use The Salvation Army to impact the world. The General and Commissioner Peddle are convinced of their responsibility to preach the gospel, encourage the saints and serve those in need.

Dr. Roger Green

Dr. Roger Green

Corps Bible Study Leader

Roger J. Green, professor of biblical and theological studies and Terrelle B. Crum Chair of Humanities, retired in May after 46 years of teaching—at Barrington College, Asbury College, and, since 1985, at Gordon. This May and June, along with his wife, Karen (pictured with him), he will lead the Holy Land Pilgrimage for alumni and friends of the College for the last time as a full-time member of the Gordon College faculty.

“I could not be more delighted with the vocation that the Lord has given me these many years,” he says.

A longtime member and a scholar of The Salvation Army, Dr. Green wove a new strand of theological understanding into Gordon’s curriculum through his knowledge of Wesleyan history and theology. His grounding in The Salvation Army’s commitment both to preaching and to social ministries—and its welcoming of women in ministry—has dovetailed well with Gordon’s institutional identity.

He is the recipient of The Salvation Army’s rarely-bestowed Order of the Founder, and of an honorary degree from William and Catherine Booth College. In addition to his work published in journals, and his contributions to several editions of the Bible, he is the author of a bookshelf’s worth of volumes about The Salvation Army, including War on Two Fronts: The Redemptive Theology of WIlliam Booth and Catherine Booth: A Biography of the Co-Founder of The Salvation Army.

High points of his career, he says, include being hired by Dr. Marvin Wilson in 1970 to teach at Barrington—and being invited to teach at the United College of Gordon and Barrington when the colleges merged in 1985. Meeting his wife, Karen, who worked at Gordon College as a nurse while he was still teaching at Barrington, is another highlight, as are semester-long sabbaticals to places like London and Nigeria.

What will he miss most? “The dynamics of the classroom,” he responds. “You never know what the day will bring.”

Colonel Janet Munn

Colonel Janet Munn

Beach Bible Study Leader

Colonel Janet Munn has been an officer in The Salvation Army for over 30 years and has served globally in leadership, and in local Salvation Army congregations, both urban and suburban. Janet desires to equip a generation of spiritual leaders who are devoted to Jesus Christ, His Word, to prayer, to the beauty of His holiness, and reaching the world for whom Christ died. Janet has given many summers of her life to summer camping ministry for underprivileged children and youth. In contexts ranging from local, regional, to international, she calls people to 24/7 prayer, to corporate prayer and fasting, and to accountability and discipleship in community through small groups. Janet describes the Bible as the most invigorating, disturbing, and enlivening thing she has ever read, and is endeavouring to live in the light of it. Janet is passionate about the fullness of Christ being manifest in this generation and is laboring to see The Salvation Army become an Army on its knees. Janet is the daughter of a Nazarene pastor-father and a disciple-making-mother; the wife of an Anglo-American-egalitarian-husband and the mother of beautiful, articulate, and blessed young adults, Nealson, Olivia and (son-in-law) Pratik, all of whom live in New York City. Janet has completed her Doctor of Ministry degree from Ashland Theological Seminary in Transformational Leadership.
