Jay Burns Opens Up About Helping the World the Salvation Army Way

There’s a saying that goes, “no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.” We find ourselves in times where we urgently need to give. The world is facing a growing number of refugees. Our border is swamped with immigrants from different backgrounds and ages looking for assistance. We also have internal issues such as increasing homelessness and many more. 

National reports state that on any given night in the U.S, nearly 60,000 people are left homeless. What’s more, about 13.8 million people were food insecure at some time during 2020. 

In such times, we need hearts that are zealous in giving. We talked to Jay Burns about what it means to help the world the Salvation Army way. 

About Jay Burns 

Jay Burns is the CEO of Covenant Missions. After his father, a Pastor of Covenant Missionary Temple, passed away, Burns took over in the Church. As he took over leadership of the Church in 2012, Burns had one mission in mind. He wanted to distribute foods, goods, and services to the community. 

When Burns took over his father’s ministry, his mindset was to turn it into something similar to the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army is a movement known for its acts of charity and helping the vulnerable in the community. Therefore, to fulfill his mission, Burns engaged in various mission-minded services. 

Burns went on his first mission in the Dominican Republic. He has worked on the Mental Health Wellness Team to support the unaccompanied minors coming across the border. The Federal Government commissions the Mental Health Wellness Team. The organization served children through module sessions, individual consultations, family reunifications, and town halls.

Burns notes that about 175-200 children per day are served through module sessions, 50-75 children are served through individual consultations, and ten children are served through family reunifications.

Burns has participated in several humanitarian efforts. For instance, he partnered with Forgotten Harvest to serve the community of Roseville by distributing food. So far, they have distributed over 10 million pounds of food and assisted over 100 thousand families with services and suitable Endorsed by State Representative Marilyn Lane. 

The call to help others 

However small or big, the beauty of kindness is that it can make a difference. Burns recalls that his father was big on charity. He would always leave the house with $2 to $3 to give to someone he met on the streets. 

So far, Burns’s organization has impacted millions of lives. He continues to expand his reach and capabilities to serve the community. Currently, he has projects that will help year-over-year, including Establishing Professional Counseling Services, Women’s shelters, Refugee Housing, Drug, and Alcohol Rehabilitation. 

Burns’s 21 years of experience in planning, developing, and implementing cutting-edge solutions have seen him set policies, guidance, and long-range plans that have significantly impacted the community and the lives of others. Burns has worked as a project leader. His experience in aligning and realigning priorities until he was sure you had arranged them

in the most productive configuration possible, helped create a solution to a 300 million-dollar reconveyance problem in 2017.
