WILMORE, Ky. (April 21, 2015) — Gen. André Cox and Commissioner Silvia Cox of The Salvation Army are at Asbury University today and Wednesday.

Cox is the 20th world-wide leader of the Salvation Army. Cox previously held appointments in Switzerland and Zimbabwe and served as a territorial commander in the Southern Africa Territory, the Finland and Estonia Territory and the United Kingdom Territory with the Republic of Ireland. In February 2013, he was appointed as Chief of the Staff.

The visit will include a tour of Asbury, meetings with university leadership, fellowship with Salvationist faculty and staff and a Chapel address on Wednesday.

Asbury’s relationship with the Salvation Army is longstanding—the first Salvationist student came to Asbury in 1924, and over the years, more than 500 Salvationists have attended the university.

Asbury University is the only college with an official Salvation Army Student Center, which was built in 1983
