Job Description

Cadence Student Ministry

Military Students

Military students are open, resilient, strong, brave, interesting, and often overlooked. In Cadence Student Ministry, we understand that they, like their parents, have a unique call on their lives. We count it a privilege to be there for them as they navigate middle and high school as military dependents.


Cadence Student Ministry (CSM) reaches military students in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. through relationships and programs designed to help them become disciples of Christ. We partner with Chapel youth groups and hospitality houses to build authentic community, have fun, and grow our faith.


Job Description

Cadence International is an evangelical mission agency dedicated to reaching the military communities of the United States and of the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Student ministry missionaries come alongside military chaplains to reach, disciple, mentor, and mobilize middle school and high school students in a military community. Programs are tailored to the unique needs and circumstances of each military community and provide powerful environments of love for military students to gather, grow, and then go to their next location.

Each year CSM hosts retreats where students experience Christ in the context of caring adults, friends, and memorable fun. These events create a relational environment where biblical truth is lived and proclaimed allowing students to hear, experience, discuss, and respond to Jesus. Our Cadence staff seeks to develop servant leaders in each community. This is accomplished through ongoing discipleship throughout the year as well as specific events that encourage, train, and equip students to serve and share Christ with their peers.

Cadence is a faith-based ministry requiring its missionaries to raise their monthly support through friends, family, and the church community. All appointed missionaries are partnered with an MPD coach (Ministry of Partnership Development) to encourage and guide them through this process. We believe it is a privilege to be sent by God’s people in this way.

We presently have full-time Student Ministry opportunities across the United States, Europe, and Japan. Previous military experience is not required; many of our staff have not served. All of us have hearts for the military.
