The Mighty Oaks Warrior journey begins with intensive peer based programs that utilize instructional sessions, camaraderie, and team building activities that are designed to challenge our Warriors to overcome their past experiences and move forward into a life of purpose. Our programs take place all across America on Military Bases, at our Outposts, and on rural ranch lodges. Our primary location is through our partnership with Serving California at SkyRose Ranch, near the city of Paso Robles, CA. The expansive 20,000-acre ranch allows the Warriors to appreciate the peace of nature, and have an “un-plugged” experience while they focus on the challenges they face in completing the program.
The lodges where our Warriors stay are first-class, handicap-accessible facilities. The delicious meals served during each program will satisfy the hungriest Warrior! Along with the programs’ daily peer-based sessions come exciting opportunities to engage in a variety of recreational activities all designed to engage in the brotherhood aspect of the programs. The lodge’s amenities include washer & dryers, linens, toiletries, internet, and landline phone service.

MILITARY RESILIENCY CONFERENCES
The United States Military is the most equipped fighting force in the world in terms of manpower and equipment. These brave men and women have provided a blanket of freedom for America and other nations of the world where we answered the call to fight for those who could not protect themselves. However, at times, that freedom comes at a cost resulting in combat stress or “Post Traumatic Stress”, Veteran suicides, and the divorce of our military families.
We believe that if properly equipped on the front end of conflict our Warriors and Families can have “Spiritual Resiliency” and a mindset that is preventative of the hardships we have seen far too many of our Warriors face.
To take an offensive role in the war against PTS, Veteran suicide & divorce Mighty Oaks conducts training and conferences to the US Military for the following areas:
- Pre-Deployment Briefings for Warriors and Families
- Combat Resiliency Training Conferences
- Post Combat Reintegration Conferences
- Suicide Prevention Conferences
- Marriage Conferences
LEGACY PROGRAM for MEN
Our six-day intensive peer to peer program serves as the catalyst to help Warriors discover the answers to the big questions in life. Challenges related to the struggles of daily military life, combat deployments and the symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTS) surface during these six days, and the Legacy Program for Men teaches how to fight through these challenges, which might have been limiting their personal success. Legacy’s confidential, open environment and the camaraderie participants experience in recreation trigger growth and recovery within the men. By discovering the truth about discipline, brotherhood, legacy, courage, honor, faith and family, men develop authentic character and learn to live a life of leadership. We equip our Warriors to fight through life’s challenges and discover the very purpose for their lives moving forward.
LEGACY PROGRAM for WOMEN
The Legacy Program for Women is a process of learning to become a Virtuous Woman – “The Proverbs 31” woman. This five-day retreat leads spouses and Military women through a time of learning, exploration and growth with an aim to cultivate virtuous characteristics in a safe, open, nurturing environment. The goal is to give women a biblical blueprint of womanhood, and target the key areas of their life (faith, marriage, mothering, health, service and finances) in order to challenge and grow them into who they were designed to be.
MARRIAGE ADVANCE: LOVE NEVER GIVES UP
Our four-day Marriage Advance Program is designed for couples to gain a better understanding of the struggles they each face from dealing with military service and combat trauma. We structure conversations around needs, expectations, goals and forgiveness to help couples move forward. Once provided with the necessary support to regain the strength that is required of a healthy unit, each couple learns to engage successfully with the recovery process in order to have a successful marriage.
*Program is reserved for alumni of the Fight Club Programs.
Mentorship Program: No Man Fights Alone
The week that our Warriors spend at Mighty Oaks is nothing short of miraculous! For many, it is marked by the most memorable event in their life; their salvation and newfound purpose in Christ. This new beginning is typically filled with excitement and passion, yet poses many challenges ahead. We know the problems they came with will be waiting for them when they go home, and their new passion, purpose, and skills will be met by opposition, resentment, and new struggles.
Our Mentorship Program is part of the “aftercare” effort for our alumni, and is the point in the Mighty Oaks’ story where you may be called to serve our nation without having ever served in uniform. Our founder’s journey to restoration includes the willingness of one man who God used to mentor and lead him into becoming the man God had called him to be… and that is where Mighty Oaks began! You can do that too… What impact can you make in the life of one of our Warriors and to those they will reach?
Apply now to join us in our aftercare program to mentor a warrior and bring to life the notion that, “No Man Fights Alone.”
*Applications will be reviewed, vetted, and approved based on criteria set by MOWP in the best interests of our alumni. All mentors must be willing to serve a minimum of 1 hour per week for six months.

"I witnessed warriors, hardened by their combat experiences, come to terms with their own brokenness and find healing in the redemptive powers of Jesus Christ. Their curriculum wastes no time beating around the bush and gets to the heart of the matter exploring the meaning of authentic manhood."

"You are able to trust everyone around you without the fear of being judged. I was able to share something with this group that I've never shared with anyone my entire life. That in itself shows just how trusting and comfortable this environment is."
