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.

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!

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.

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.
