Program Leaders


The Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs have a unique leadership development philosophy. We recruit from within. At the core of our programs are our Program Mentors and Peer Leaders; Mentors are military veterans who are trained and bring experienced Biblical counsel to each of our programs. They provide Biblical oversight, are our on site counsel for both students and peer leaders and they function to transition each individual student into an aftercare plan and network. Each of our Peer Leaders attend as a participant before being selected to be trained and return as leadership within the program. That means all our Peer Leaders work directly with the men or women who come through the Legacy Programs from a position of experience and understanding. That experience encompasses combat experience, Post Traumatic Stress and day-to-day life issues. That also means that our Peer Leaders function in a “peer-to-peer” capacity. The experience our PLs bring translates into a voice of compassion, patience and experience. Our men’s PLs come from all military branches with a variety of MOS’s represented. Our women’s PLs also have a dynamic background ranging from spouses of combat veterans and military who have served or are currently serving. 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 do we treat those who attend as victims because we reject the idea that veterans are victims of their service. The same is true for our women’s program, as we outline the biblical blueprint for virtuous womanhood. We treat those who come to our programs as warriors who need to get back in the fight because there are things in life worth fighting for.

In short, these four bullets describe our Peer Leaders:

Men’s Legacy Program 

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

Women’s Legacy Program 

  1. All are Christians.
  2. All are military spouses, veterans, or currently serving.
  3. All have come through the process from being a student to a “certified” Peer Leader.
  4. All are continuing their knowledge and understanding in their walk with Christ and assistance to those with PTS.
