Our Speakers

All of our speakers are Veterans or First Responders with combat or operational experience exposed to traumatic and stressful events who have experienced life transformation through Christ and deliver a message of restoration, hope, healing and renewed purpose through the telling of their unique story.


The United States Military and 1st Responders are the most capable force in the world comprised of brave men and women always willing to answer the call to defend freedom and stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. However, at times, that freedom comes at the cost of combat stress or Post Traumatic Stress (PTSd), suicide, and divorce. We believe that resiliency is comprised of four pillars: Mind, Body, Spirit and Social and that if properly equipped on the front end of conflict, those who attend and their families can have a true “Spiritual Resiliency”. We have been privileged to bring this message of resiliency and hope to thousands of active duty military members around the world equipping them to thrive as they answer our nations call.

Military Events

We come alongside individual commands and chaplaincies to offer peer to peer talks that can include pre-deployment resiliency training, shoring up your home life while you are gone, how to have more effective communications, during a deployment and how to better be equipped for post deployment family reintegration.

Men’s Events

What does True Manhood defined by God look like? We answer this question utilizing curriculum from our core classes in our military Men’s Programs. This includes defining an authentic man, being a purposeful husband, father and leader and walking in integrity through real brotherhood and community.

Women’s Events

These talks are designed with guiding women toward a Biblical blueprint of womanhood; to inspire them, and help to flourish in all of the key areas of their life (faith, marriage, mothering, health, service and finances) in order to challenge and help them grow into who they were designed to be.

Marriage Events

Our marriage talks aim to help couples gain a better understanding of the struggles that they each face. We speaks on needs, expectations, communications, goal and forgivenness. A healthy couple can successfully weather any storm if they walk in understanding of one another and center their marriage on Godly principles.


"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."

“The Mighty Oaks Team pulled together to help lift me up through dark times; I have chosen to dedicate my life to helping other veterans struggling with some of the same challenges I have had to face….”

"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."

"There's good and evil fighting inside of everybody and if you can see the positive, you can live an awesome life."

By, John Feddema  Are you anxious, worried about the future, your future? Anxiety is the inevitable unease that gnaws at our confidence, the slow suffocation as we feel strangled by the challenges of life. The men that arrived at the Gatehouse Retreat Center on the...
