Ken and Christi’s desire is to see people discover more of the wholeness and freedom that is available through faith and relationship with Jesus Christ. They believe this can be fostered through the Cadence hospitality house model. Their vision is to minister alongside chaplains to love and serve military men and women. Their aim is to help service members and their families navigate the challenges of everyday life and the life of faith by sharing the gospel and their lives through meals, community, Bible study, one on one and small group settings, retreats, service projects and adventuring together.
Ken and Christi have both known Jesus since childhood. Their faith is in what God has testified—that He has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son, Jesus. Their individual faith journeys have been filled with ups and downs, joys, and struggles, as God has pulled them close and proved Himself trustworthy in their lives. Trusting that it was God’s timing, Ken retired from active duty with the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service in October 2020. By faith, they believe that God has led them to serve with Cadence as the next step of their adventure together.
Ken and Christi met in 2005 and were married a year later during a blizzard in the White Mountains of Arizona. They believe that God was pleased to pour out the storehouses of snow as a wedding gift for them! They are in the midst of raising two beautiful and precious daughters.
