Ray and Char have served with Cadence since 1978, moving from Japan to Kaneohe Bay Marine Corps Base Hawaii in 1999. In 2014, Ray fought a tough fight to put God’s glory on display while battling brain cancer. As God said, “Ray, it’s time for you to come home,” Char continued on in her ministry, shifting primarily to working with and supporting military wives and single military women.
In 2000, Char established the first PWOC (Protestant Women of the Chapel) ministry on a Marine Corps base. She continues to lead the women’s ministry, Evangelical Women of the Chapel (EWOC), at the chapel. She recruits and trains up a leadership team each year, providing tools and modeling God’s principals with which to lead by. Weekly Bible studies are ongoing, providing sound Biblical teaching, followed by small groups which provide the intimate sharing of lives.
Char mentors/disciples young single women and meets regularly and randomly with military wives to encourage, support, and direct them to Jesus. She believes that everyone wants to be seen, known, and loved. This is her aim in all that she is doing with Cadence. She is a model of faith and obedience in her ministry.
