Introduced to Cadence in 2017 through an internship that Dani did in Okinawa, Jarett and Dani’s hearts were stirred towards ministry to the military community. In February 2020, they had the opportunity to share the gospel at a Cadence middle school camp, and that’s where the Lord made it clear that Cadence would be the next step for their lives and ministry.
Jarett and Dani are ready and willing to serve wherever the Lord leads them with Cadence! They are eager to serve young military members, student-athletes, and military families around the world. Jarett and Dani are currently building their team of ministry partners and doing ministry in their backyard in Salem, OR as the Lord prepares the way for them to step into their full-time ministry role with Cadence.
Jarett and Dani were both very blessed to grow up in homes that served and loved the Lord. While growing up in a faith-filled home, Dani didn’t fully understand the grace of God until a traumatic car accident at 16 years old, when the Lord used hardship and trial to work in Dani’s life in spectacular ways and taught her a new depth of dependence on His mercy and grace. Jarett’s faith began to truly develop in high school, when some key mentors and a few extra measures of God’s extraordinary grace drew him into deeper relationship with Christ.
Both Jarett and Dani were blessed to have people come alongside them when they were the furthest from the Lord to mentor and disciple them. Before they got married, they individually knew that the Lord had called them to be those people to others, and they are passionate about that in their marriage now, too. They know that they are called to do ministry, share the gospel, and disciple others no matter where they’re located, and that next location happens to be with Cadence. They are grateful for the Lord’s redemptive work in their lives, and they are eager to continue glorifying Him in this new season of ministry!
Jarett and Dani got married in September 2019, and their family consists of the two of them and their pup, Runa. Dani’s family is originally from Vancouver, WA where her parents and three sisters still live. Jarett’s family is from Boise, ID where he grew up with his parents and two brothers.
