Cathy and Brian are excited to begin a new Cadence ministry at Fort Polk, Louisiana. In past years, Fort Polk chaplains have requested that Cadence International start a work there, as it is a location which is ripe for ministry. The Hutchens anticipate welcoming Soldiers and their families to their noisy, joyful home, a place where the Lord will be lifted high and growth in Christlikeness a continual goal. They feel honored to be given this opportunity. Pray they will be led by the Holy Spirit as they step out in faith.
Fort Polk is a tough Army assignment. It has a small population with approximately 8,000 active-duty Soldiers stationed there. It is located near Leesville, a small town in rural Louisiana. It is not considered a “choice” assignment by many. We believe that the gospel of Christ, discipleship, and Christian community are greatly needed by those assigned to this isolated Army installation.
They anticipate offering:
- Weekly gatherings for teaching, including men’s and women’s Bible studies
- Barracks (single Soldier) focused ministry events
- Regular outreach to the local community
- Fun recreational events
- Outdoor ministry activities specifically geared to minister to chaplains
