Jeremy Stalnecker is the Executive Director of the Mighty Oaks Foundation which is dedicated to helping America’s military warriors and their families who are suffering from the unseen wounds of combat.
While growing up Jeremy’s only goal was to leave home and join the Marine Corps. This dream was finally realized with an active duty commission in 1999 which opened the door to serve as a Marine Infantry Officer during the opening days of the war in Iraq.
One month after returning from Iraq, Jeremy entered full-time ministry and eventually accepted a senior pastor role. He later accepted a full-time position with the Mighty Oaks Foundation which brought together his ministry and military experience in a way that allows him to minister to hurting veterans, service members and their families. Along with his wife and their four children, Jeremy works to reach the hurting and provide healing found in Christ.
I am currently the Executive Director of the Mighty Oaks Foundation. Many of our Nation’s Warriors struggle with the hardships of military service and reintegration back into civilian life; often leaving broken homes in their aftermath and comprise one of the most at risk groups for suicide. Mighty Oaks tackles this critical issue with our peer-to-peer resiliency and recovery programs offered at no cost to our honored service men and women guiding them as they find a new life purpose through hope in Christ.
How to Help Our Military Warriors
One of life’s great challenges, whether you are a veteran or not, is understanding the world that we live in from a biblical perspective.
The Bible has the answers for the many questions that life presents, but we often need someone to help us apply those answers to our lives. My prayer is that as you read the topical posts found here that you would more clearly see God’s purpose and work in your life.
