All of our staff could not think of a better place to do youth and children's ministry than though the military chapels. We are contracted to the base Chapel through Cadence International to provide the best student and children's programs around.
WHERE IS OUR OFFICE LOCATED?
Our main location: Building 5950 on Camp Foster. It is the same building as the Military Clothing Store, which is across the street from the Foster Furniture Store and the Foster Music School. Enter through the main door to the Military Clothing Store, and then enter the first door on your right. Hope to see you soon!
David & Andrea Hutchings
Foster Community Director
Our family has been in Okinawa, ministering to students since 2007. Living here is Okinawa is such an incredible experience. We pretty much think military students are the best, and while we love it here, there's nothing we love more than seeing lives transformed by the gospel, and students becoming confident in who God has designed them to be, and living and serving as world changers across the globe.
We love rock climbing, hiking, sushi, new adventures, and finding crazy new parks with our two amazing kids!
High School (Common Ground) Director
Growing up around the military community the Lord drew my heart to Cadence where I could share the gospel with students whose parents are in the military. It is a huge blessing to see the Lord move in the hearts of teens and see them fully committed to our Savior. I arrived in Okinawa August 2014 excited and ready to be stationed at Foster and do youth ministry.
During my free time I love exploring Okinawa and seeing the Japanese culture. I also love to travel and am one who would get on an airplane at the drop of a hat if invited.
