A Salvation Army soldier’s “long obedience in the same direction”

Submitted by on July 30, 2012 – No Comment

John Magnenat and a vintage photo of himself in a Salvation Army bandmaster uniform!

What Friedrich Nietzsche would call “a long obedience in the same direction,” John Magnenat would simply call ‘doing his part’ as a foot soldier in The Salvation Army for more than 68 years.

In The Salvation Army, those involved in the life and ministry of the church aren’t just members: they’re called soldiers, joined in the fight against physical and spiritual poverty.

He believes that no Army can run on officers alone. Every army – especially ours – needs soldiers to do the work God gives them to do.

Magnenat is the son of Salvation Army missionaries to Peru and began his own walk with God as a Junior Solider at the tender age of six.  At 20, he stepped in to lead the band at his Salvation Army worship center (we call it a ‘corps’) and has been playing music ever since.
