The Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs has a unique leadership development philosophy. We recruit from within. Each of our Team Leaders is a combat veterans who have come through the program as a participant. That means all our Team Leaders work with the men who come through the Men’s Legacy Program from a position of experience. That experience encompasses both combat experience and Post Traumatic Stress. That also means that our Team Leaders function in a “peer-to-peer” capacity. The experience our TLs brings translates into a voice of compassion and patience. Our TLs come from all military branches with a variety of MOS’s represented. We treat those who come through our program the way you’d expect a fellow veteran, a fellow warrior, in a way they would expect to be treated. We don’t coddle, nor treat those who attend as victims because we reject the idea that veterans are victims. We treat those who come as warriors who need to get back in the fight because there are things in life worth fighting for.

The process to become a Team Leader is rigorous, it starts with being a student, progresses through a time of preparation and evaluation before becoming a “certified” Team Leader. However, the process does not stop there, there is a continuing education process that the Team Leader follows. Not everyone is cut out to be a Team Leader. We endeavor to put only those that are the qualified, capable, and reflect the values that Mighty Oaks stands for in front of students. The most important quality of a Team Leader is his growing walk with Christ and fellowship in his local church.

In short, these four bullets describe our Team Leaders:

  1. All are Christians
  2. All are combat veterans
  3. All have come through the process from being a student to a “certified” Team Leader.
  4. All are continuing their knowledge and understanding in their walk with Christ and assistance to those with PTS.

While we have a growing staff of leadership for Mighty Oaks, we would like you to meet a few from our primary leaders:
