Sherman, Texas (June 28, 2022)—The Salvation Army in Grayson County is pleased to welcome new leaders, Lieutenants Michael & Amanda Cain. They officially assumed their position on Sunday, June 26 and are looking forward to getting to know the community and continuing the ministry of The Salvation Army.

Salvation Army Officers are transferred to different locations, typically every 3-4 years. The Cains are enthusiastic and dynamic leaders and come to Grayson County from Plano, where for the last three years they were responsible for the programs and services of The Salvation Army in that community.

Michael and Amanda Cain, Texan and Texan by heart, were commissioned and ordained as Salvation Army Officers (Pastors) in June 2019.  They are first generation Salvationists on fire for God and the mission of The Salvation Army. They have four adult children with the youngest just graduating high school and about to start college. In their spare time they like to play pickleball and have even played in tournaments together. Walking their grand puppy every night after supper time is their daily enjoyment.

“It has already been exciting to meet the people of Grayson County and discover the opportunities for ministry here,” said Lt. Michael. “We look forward to meeting the needs of this community and ‘Doing The Most Good’ alongside the staff, volunteers, and supporters of The Salvation Army.” 

The couple is responsible for all church programs and social services at The Salvation Army including the shelter, Family Store, food pantry, financial assistance, and weekly church service and activities. 

“Many people don’t realize that The Salvation Army is a church,” said Lt. Amanda. “And we invite everyone to join us for Worship each Sunday at 11:00 a.m., at The Salvation Army, located at 5700 Texoma Parkway, here in Sherman. We look forward to meeting you soon!”
