Raised in Texas, Major Jamie met both Jesus and her foxy husband Matt at The Salvation Army’s Camp Hoblitzelle, which kick-started a love for camp ministry. That love grew even deeper as Matt and Jamie served for seven years as Camp Directors and Divisional Youth Leaders, allowing them to use their passion for youth ministry and the leadership development of young people. This passion for the discipleship and leadership development of young people has continued through Jamie’s time as the Editor of Peer magazine. In her new appointment as Director of Publications, Jamie is excited to be a part of that transformational discipleship that takes place across all of The Salvation Army’s National Publications. She is the mom of two incredible daughters and loves to spend her free time watching college football (Boomer Sooner!) or exploring the great outdoors with her family. – Major Jamie Satterlee: Director of Publications
