A calling to international missions
Share the gospel with military personnel, their spouses and dependents in all branches of the U.S. military around the globe.
Are you looking for an opportunity to serve and gain experience that challenges you and your perspective? All while investing in the Kingdom and developing your skills as a minister of the gospel?
As you begin to explore your opportunity with Cadence, we can help you envision what it means to share the gospel and your life with the military community. You can find your place serving adults, students, children, and armed forces of foreign countries.
Learn more about how you can serve with the following groups:
Adults—Adult ministries encompass families, singles, as well as specific ministry to women in uniform. Hospitality is the core of how we reach out to these different groups. Whether it’s through home-cooked meals in a hospitality house, coffee with someone, or a retreat created to refresh the soul, we strive to allow the Lord to use hospitality to draw people to Himself.
Children—Working alongside chaplains, our children’s staff minister to children in the military community through programs and activities.
Foreign Armed Forces—Those involved with this ministry have a strong sense of adventure, are highly motivated, and are willing to join a team in pioneering incarnational relationships within foreign military communities.
Students—Student staff offer Bible studies, discipleship, and activities to build relationships and community.

Limited-term staff positions are designed to fill temporary needs in established ministries. These assignments range in their roles, but often live on-site and operate a ministry during a full-time missionary’s absence.
In addition to filling in for staff, we also have ongoing support roles that would come alongside a missionary.
They include, but are not limited to, the following:
Hospitality Hosts—Do you enjoy meeting new people and making them feel loved and welcome? Do you like to host and prepare meals for groups of people? Your gifts in hospitality and service can assist our hospitality house and retreat directors in this way. These hospitality roles require a genuine servant’s heart.
Teachers for Missionary Kids—Do you have training or experience in education? Would you like to teach children in an overseas environment? People like you can help educate the children of Cadence missionary families. You would work alongside our staff families by providing their children with a home school education.
Facilities Maintenance—Cadence relies on skilled tradesmen who can travel to ministry sites around the globe to help maintain our various facilities or assist in building projects. An ability to graciously adapt to foreign construction and maintenance challenges is essential.
Our Headquarters’ (HQ) staff support our missionaries in their ministries. These positions are primarily administrative in the following departments: Human Resources, Finance, Information Technology, Communications and Operations.
The Cadence HQ is located in Englewood, Colorado.
Would you like to get to know Cadence better and discover the context of our values and ministry style? Then join us for a one-day, one-week or one-month ministry experience.

These trips are for those seeking a brief, hands-on experience in a particular Cadence ministry. Interested parties must be flexible, servant-minded, and enjoy meeting and interacting with new acquaintances.
