Welcome Captains Charles & Kathleen Pinkston!


Captains Charles and Kathleen (Katie) Pinkston now serve the Midland Division's Jacksonville (Illinois) Corps. Captain Charles originates from Wichita, Kansas, and Captain Kathleen is from Grand Rapids, Michigan. The two entered CFOT as single cadets in 1998 and were commissioned in 2000. 

The two were engaged prior to commissioning. Captain Charles was first assigned as the assistant corps officer in Columbia, Missouri, while Captain Katie served at the Euclid Corps Community Center in St. Louis until the two were married in August 2000. At that time, the two served as
assistant corps officers together in Columbia, Missouri.

The couple has also served appointments in Manistee, Michigan, Muskegon, Michigan, and El Dorado, Kansas. They have two children, Isaac and Alden, and both have a passion for discipling to others and promoting a true corps family wherever they are appointed.

Our goal is to be a resource to those who are faced with major trials and difficulties, and help them get back on their feet and stand tall. "We have seen people come into our facility for help, with the weight of the world on their shoulders. But when they have left, they were standing taller, and more confident."
