Paul and Sandra Bradley — Division Director
After graduation from The Master’s University in 1991, Paul and his wife, Sandra, joined Cadence International, a mission organization whose passion is to make disciples of Jesus among military personnel and their families. For the next seven years, the Bradleys worked on American Air Force bases in England and Germany, coming alongside the chaplains to provide chapel-supported middle school and high school youth ministries. Following this time, their family returned to the U.S. where Paul became the Director of Operations at the Cadence Headquarters in Denver, Colorado for the next five years. During this period of time, and over the course of several trips overseas, Paul developed a passion for ministering to the militaries of foreign countries.
In 2006, Paul and Sandra, along with their three children, moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where Paul currently works as the Director of Foreign Armed Forces within Cadence. Besides Thailand, his ministry has taken him to Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Iraq and Syria. He is also currently serving as Chaplain with the Free Burma Rangers, an organization which trains relief teams to provide assistance and help to the oppressed groups in conflict areas. He has developed a chaplain training program amongst the ethnic people groups of Burma, with the goal of empowering the nationals to provide spiritual leadership and guidance among their people.
