Booth Youth


What is Booth Youth?

Booth Youth has a unique mission: to strive to inspire a generation of youth within The Salvation Army’s eastern territory to live for what matters most. This website will serve to equip that generation with resources, articles, links, programs, and events so that more can come to know Jesus.

 We also strive to be a resource for the Eastern territory at the local level, with resources for all youth programs at the corps and divisional levels.

 We are passionate about making a lasting impact on the spiritual journey of our youth. It is our hope that through this site, a new generation of leaders will be trained and inspired to serve the kingdom.

Major Philip Lloyd

Territorial Youth Secretary

It is my privilege to provide leadership to the great group of individuals who make up the USA East Territorial Youth Department. I am responsible for all The Salvation Army sponsored youth programs throughout the Eastern Territory. I promote the improvement, advancement, and coordination of corps and community youth programs. If you ever have any questions about anything the Youth Department does, or questions about any of The Salvation Army’s youth ministries and programs, and you don’t know where to start, just ask and I can point you in the right direction.

 Major Jodi Lloyd and I love teaching Corps Cadets at our local corps! We have four wonderful and crazy kids of our own and our favorite thing to do as a family is go camping and to the beach!


Major Jodi Lloyd

Associate Territorial Youth Secretary

I’m Major Jodi Lloyd, and I’m thrilled to be leading the Territorial Youth Department with my husband. My passion is definitely corps and camp ministries. I grew up in a small corps participating in Jr. Soldiers, Sunbeams (I am a Commissioner Sunbeam), Corps Cadets and anything else I could go to at the corps. These programs were crucial to me when I was a child. I’ve spent every summer at camp since the age of 6. I met Jesus at Camp Wonderland and my life changed every summer as a camper and as a staff member. I oversee Jr. Soldiers, Corps Cadets, and Bible Bowl in the Territory. Let me know if you have any ideas or need any help with these programs!

I am the mother of 4 very energetic, great kids. Our family loves soldiering at the Spring Valley Corps and I am blessed to lead an amazing Corps Cadet brigade of 23 young people with my husband!

Lieutenant Joshua Morales

Christian Education Director

Hello everyone! Lieutenant Josh Morales here and I’m the Christian Education Director for the territory. I’m the contact person for all things Orange, and would love to have a conversation regarding lessons, training, or anything of the sort. I’ll also be working with the incredible Orange team to help our Sunday Schools bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I’m very excited to be a part of the team!

I am newly married in October of 2017, and love music, movies, games, and sports. If you want to talk Superheroes, I’m your guy!


Captain Gillian Rogers

Youth Officer

I am Captain Gillian Rogers, and I am so happy to be a part of the Territorial Youth Department. I have various roles in the department including graphic work and Special Observance events. Another role involves working in communications with SAConnects and The Young Salvationist (soon to be Peer!), I am always looking for stories about youth ministry throughout the territory, so let me know if you have anything happening at your corps!

I am blessed to be the mother of two amazing children, and along with my husband, our family soldiers at the Spring Valley Corps. Outside of work I love drawing, painting, and being able to use art as a way of connecting with God that goes beyond words.
