For the second year in a row Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs had the opportunity to participate in the Kingdom Bound Conference held in Darien Lake New York outside of Buffalo. This annual conference boasts nearly 75,000 attendees over the four days of the conference and features a full schedule of Christian bands, speakers and authors. In addition to meeting a number of influential Christian leaders, both Chad Robichaux and Jeremy Stalnecker had the opportunity to present the Mighty Oaks Message. It was amazing to see the great response from folks presented with the answer to combat trauma and the way forward in life.
Building on our relationship with a great community, our Deputy Director, Jonny Benton, had the opportunity to present the Program of Mighty Oaks at the California Mid-state fair held in Paso Robles.
