Ken and Julie Converse
Christian Outreach to Soldiers
Ken and Julie Converse are missionaries with Cadence International (formerly Overseas Christian Servicemen’s Centers). They are providing Christian outreach to the soldiers and families of Fort Wainwright, Alaska. Part of their ministry involves using their home as a center for hospitality meals, Bible studies, and a fun place for Christian fellowship. They are also a vital part of the Fort Wainwright Protestant Chapel. They work alongside United States Army chaplains.
Julie’s heart goes out to female single soldiers, as well as to many wives of soldiers. She teaches Bible studies, disciples others, and is an important part of the Protestant Women of the Chapel. She is also a great mom and grandmother to our four sons, their wives, and ten grandchildren.
Ken enjoys his time with young men who are single soldiers as well as with married soldiers of all ages. His passion involves building friendships, sharing the gospel, and providing ongoing discipleship to equip them for a life of service in a broken world. He also enjoys introducing soldiers (and his grandchildren) to the art of fly-fishing and fly-tying, ammunition reloading, ice-fishing, and river rafting.
