Young, searching, impressionable, moldable, and eager for relationship, many of those serving in the armed forces are in some of the most strategic moments of their lives—moments of receptivity, of soul-searching, of discovery, and of life transformation. Cadence International® exists to be there during these strategic moments sharing the gospel and our lives. It’s why we are here—for military people and their families, for these poignant moments of life-change.
Cadence International is an evangelical mission agency dedicated to reaching the military communities of the United States and of the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ. For five decades, Cadence has grown from a small, fledgling mission to an organization with close to 200 missionaries who work in over 50 locations worldwide.
Cadence serves all branches of the U.S. military in American and overseas locations. Comprised of nearly 4 million people, the U.S. military community has proven to be one of the largest, most responsive sub-cultures today. Cadence ministers not only to military personnel, but to their spouses and dependents as well. Cadence Student Ministries is the the youth division of Cadence, reaching out to children and youth in the military community.
Over the years, partnerships have also been created that give Cadence a unique role in evangelizing, teaching and discipling military members in foreign countries (including the Philippines, Thailand, and Cambodia). The military personnel, government officials, and security forces of other countries are often very receptive to hearing, accepting, and sharing the gospel themselves. Our Vision is to exalt Christ in the nations through the lives of transformed military people.
