Lt. Colonel Allan Hofer
Lt. Colonel Fiona Hofer
Divisional Leader for Advancement
Both children of Salvation Army officer parents, Allan and Fiona Hofer met at the International Training College in London, England. Following his commissioning in 1986, Allan was appointed as a Youth Officer to the Regent Hall Corps in London and in charge of Westminster Corps.
They were married the following year and began their service as Salvation Army officers. They have served in more than a dozen appointments around the world in Europe, South America, and in the United States Southern Territory.
In June 2019, the Hofers were appointed as Divisional Leaders to the Arkansas and Oklahoma Division. The Potomac Division, serving Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia, welcomed the Hofers as Divisional Leaders in June 2021, with Allan serving as Divisional Commander and Fiona serving as Divisional Leader for Advancement.
Together their highest calling is to live and to serve on behalf of Jesus Christ our Lord, and to help others to know Him.
