Lieutenants Josh and Ryan Boyd - Corps Officers, Yakima Corps

Every Salvation Army officer - both men and women - is an ordained minister within the greater Christian church. Most officers are appointed to serve as the pastors and administrators of a single Salvation Army location which is known as a "corps" and may serve in a single appointment for a period lasting up to several years. 

Both Lieutenants have a long family history of service in The Salvation Army.  Lieutenant Josh Boyd is a fifth generation Salvation Army officer, and Lieutenant Ryan Boyd is a sixth generation officer.  They served as the leaders of The Salvation Army in Anacortes, WA for four years before being appointed as the leaders of The Salvation Army in the Yakima Valley.
