Cadence International

At Cadence International, our passion is serving the military community through hospitality, Bible studies, and discipleship. We serve U.S. military personnel and those of other countries, their families, and youth.

Far from home, family, and friends, and perhaps even their own culture, military personnel are in a position to think about foundational life issues. Demanding duty schedules alternate with the boredom of off-duty hours. Deployment and potentially deadly combat are ever-present possibilities. Most are young, just deciding what to do with their lives apart from their families. Many are ready to seek strong relationships with people and with God.

Scores of Cadence alumni go into vocational Christian service. Military people have an open future. Young people are in the service for a few years, then go into the world to establish careers. Career service people have plenty of time and energy at retirement for a second vocation. The military as a mobile subculture gives many opportunities to share the gospel widely, as well as opportunities to experience different cultures and get a taste for missions
