Meet The Captains


The Salvation Army in Fort Smith is currently under the leadership of Captains Bradley and Stephanie Hargis.

The Hargis Family previously served for the Garland County Salvation Army, and started work in Fort Smith on June 20, 2021.

Bradley and Stephanie met while working at The Salvation Army Camp Heart O’ Hills in Tahlequah. They were commissioned as Salvation Army officers in 2013 and have served in Ponca City, Oklahoma, Pine Bluff, Arkansas and Hot Springs, Arkansas. They have two children, Emery, 8; and Marley, 5.

In their spare time, they like to ride bikes, prepare for 5Ks, and enjoy the outdoors.
