Corps Officers

Captains Jeff and Sheena Marquis.

Captain Jeff Marquis was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, to Salvation Army officers. His parents eventually settled in the suburbs of Chicago, where Jeff spent his adolescent years growing in his gift and love for music and the arts. He attended Asbury College, now Asbury University, in Wilmore, KY, where he studied and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music. Still involved with The Salvation Army church, Jeff began teaching music with the Army in both Texas and Florida. While in Texas, Jeff met his now wife and partner in ministry, Sheena.

Captain Sheena Marquis, born and raised in Dallas, TX, also grew up in the ministry of The Salvation Army. As a young girl, she and her family were assisted by The Salvation Army’s transitional housing center in Arlington, TX. Upon graduating from high school, Sheena served on a summer missions team to Kenya with The Salvation Army that nurtured her love for service. She received her Bachelor’s of Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington, and later a Master of Social Work from the University of South Florida in Tampa.

In 2013, Jeff and Sheena accepted God’s call to deeper service as officers in The Salvation Army. Prior to coming to Stuart, they served as Corps Officers for three years in Clay County near Jacksonville. They have a young son, Caedmon.

The Salvation Army Responses to Coronavirus COVID-19

As the coronavirus COVID-19 has evolved into a pandemic, we are monitoring the situation daily. Safety is of utmost priority, so we have ramped up efforts to slow the spread of this virus among our employees, volunteers, and the homeless and other vulnerable people we serve.

In the United States, one in six people live in poverty, and more than 550,000 are counted as homeless. These populations severely lack access to proper care, hygiene, updated information, and medical resources, which makes them more susceptible to the virus. This is where we come in. This is who we serve.

We are developing new hygiene and cleaning protocols to help keep safe our residents and others who depend on The Salvation Army’s programs and services to survive. In addition, all staff, volunteers, and program participants have been sent hygiene and prevention information as recommended by the CDC.

We also anticipate a significant increase in need of emergency assistance for low-wage earners facing layoffs due to COVID-19. The support we provide – rent/mortgage, utility, and food assistance, among others – will become more urgent as the situation evolves.

Meanwhile, we will continue to work in close partnership with area government and health experts to prepare and respond to meet specific community needs. We will continue to update this page as developments warrant.

We need support from our communities to continue to meet the daily needs of these vulnerable populations. Your donations will continue to help us respond to the situation.

Meeting your family’s needs while building a better life can be hard. The Salvation Army helps navigate challenges on the path to a brighter future.

What Is Pathway of Hope?

The Pathway of Hope initiative is an approach launched by The Salvation Army in 2011 to provide targeted services to families with a desire to take action to break the generational cycle of crisis and enable a path out of poverty. It is rooted in a case management approach, focusing on client needs through a strength-based lens.

Targeting families with children came from the desire to have an intergenerational impact on poverty. By positively influencing the lives of parents, the Salvation Army can create better living conditions for children. Influencing children in their development years is crucial, as studies show that children who spend more than half of their life in poverty are 32 times more likely to be in poverty as an adult.

The Pathway of Hope Approach Includes:

What Does the Initiative Involve?

Caring for your family’s needs, while building a strong future can be challenging in today’s economic times. The Salvation Army team will offer support, guidance and assistance as we walk alongside you on your family’s journey:

Mapping it out
Meet with a caseworker to develop your personalized action plan.

Tracking Progress
Chart your progress and see your success with your dedicated case worker on a regular basis.

Passing Milestones
See where you are at six months and decide what’s next on your journey.

Looking ahead
Celebrate your successes. Adjust any further goals.  Encourage others.


Donating to Pathway of Hope and The Salvation Army ensures that our programming can continue to help people in need in Martin, Saint Lucie, and Okeechobee counties.

The Doctrines of the Salvation Army

  1. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, and that they only constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice.
  2. We believe that there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship.
  3. We believe that there are three persons in the Godhead – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory.
  4. We believe that in the person of Jesus Christ the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man.
  5. We believe that our first parents were created in a state of innocency, but by their disobedience, they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall, all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God.
  6. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has by His suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.
  7. We believe that repentance toward God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary to salvation.
  8. We believe that we are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself.
  9. We believe that continuance in a state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ.
  10. We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  11. We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the body, in the general judgement at the end of the world, in the eternal happiness of the righteous, and in the endless punishment of the wicked.
