STORIES

FROM THE PRESIDENT

Transformed Lives

Joyce and I really enjoyed our recent trip to visit our Cadence staff in Europe. We participated in their field-wide retreat as well as visited all our ministries and staff in Germany. What joy we experienced as we engaged in their gatherings, heard their stories and challenges, and had wonderful conversations with military people.

From the Field

Stories of God’s work in and through the military.

 

Leadership and Influence

Leadership and Influence

Recently, I’ve been reflecting on my favorite leadership passage in Scripture.

Speaking of King David, the psalmist Asaph says, “He chose his servant David, and took him from the sheepfold; from tending the nursing ewes he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel, his inheritance. With upright heart he tended them, and guided them with skillful hand.” Psalm 78:71–72 NRSV

40 Years of Student Ministry

40 Years of Student Ministry

Cadence Student Ministries is celebrating 40 years of ministry to the military!

In the summer of 1981, four students from Multnomah School of the Bible (now Multnomah University) formed a quartet called Malachi Singers.

The Gardener’s Legacy

The Gardener’s Legacy

Dick was a pioneer and started many new ministries, conferences, retreats, and other events and resources for the military. He and Margaret excelled in hospitality, eternally impacting many hundreds of people a few at a time in the warmth and love of their home.

The Glory of God

The Glory of God

In contrast to Moses who wore a veil to cover the fading glory of God from the disbelieving Israelites, we now “with unveiled faces all reflect” or as the ESV puts it, “behold the glory of the Lord.”

Teamwork

The Apostle Paul knew well that the Gospel of God would not move forward without a team of people all pulling the same direction for the cause of Christ.

Selah

Cadence just finished a four-day mission-wide pause from ministry to “Selah” together.

Endurance

The Apostle Paul’s practical summary and conclusion to the glorious chapter on the resurrection of Jesus Christ in 1 Corinthians 15 calls us to work hard and endure.

Cadence-Style Ministry

Eric is a Navy doctor, and Rachel homeschools their sons. They are providing wonderful ministry to Navy personnel and their families, I am excited for you to read their story.

The Gift of Presence

​“The people we did life with. . .” I pulled that phrase from the testimony below because it says so much about our Cadence ministries—we “do life” with military people. We share their joys, struggles, heartaches, and triumphs.

2020: An Unforgettable Year

As we close out this unforgettable 2020 year, I was reminded today on a phone call with one of our Cadence field missionaries that Jesus always does His redeeming work, no matter the circumstances.

Adjustments

I think you will appreciate this testimony of God’s work from a family who has been attending the Cadence ministry at The Hangar near Spangdahlem Air Base in Germany.

Becoming an Intern

I thought you would enjoy reading the testimony of Ciera Aguer, a student at The Masters University who is applying to be a Cadence intern this summer.
