Major Roger Glick is the newly appointed Area Commander for The Salvation Army of Central Maryland. Prior to he and his wife’s appointment to Baltimore, the Glicks served on Divisional Headquarters in Florida, Area Commanders for Greater Birmingham and Area Commanders in Little Rock. They have over 15 years’ experience as Corps Officers in three appointments: Atchison, Kansas, Olathe, Kansas and Oak Creek, Wisconsin. They received appointments with increased responsibility commensurate with their demonstrated capabilities.
During a nine-year lull of service as Salvation Army Officers, Roger received his Ordination from the Church of the Nazarene on the Kansas City District. For 3 years, they served together as Senior Pastors at the Weston Church of the Nazarene before DeeAnn accepted an assignment as a Salvation Army Corps Administrator in Kansas City, Kansas. While pastoring in Weston Roger remained bi-vocational and worked for Glimcher Realty Trust Company as the Operations Director. But soon The Salvation would come calling. Roger would accept a position as the Assistant Director of Development for the Kansas and Western Missouri Division for The Salvation Army in Kansas City.
Both Roger and DeeAnn were commissioned in the Witnesses For Jesus Session from The Salvation Army’s College for Officers’ Training in Chicago in 1990. They received their Associate Degrees from Olivet Nazarene University in 1990. Roger received his bachelor’s degree in Religion, graduating Cum Laude from MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, Kansas in 1999. He pursued studies at Nazarene Theological Seminary.
Roger and DeeAnn have a desire for helping others learn to balance pastoral ministry while enjoying healthy family relationships and a maturing walk with Christ Jesus. They both share a concern that congregations learn to live together under the Lordship of Jesus in such a way that we truly become a living sign of the kingdom of God. THE Church should be models of love, forgiveness, reconciliation, and peace. Jesus prayed, “May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me” (John 17:23). The Glicks also believe deeply in the Bible’s holiness message and preach that holiness is more than “one part” of our identity; holiness is a way of being in the world — a world hungry to know that life transformation really is possible.
The Glicks have five children: Emma Louise Muriel Perez, (Johnny), Sadie Grace Marie Glick, Elijah James Frederick Glick, Tressa Rose Francis Glick and Jacob Allen Patrick Glick.
