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.
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.
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.
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."
