Serving Christ By Serving Those Who Serve America
Our Ministry to our military is a ministry reaching out to young people who have joined or are planning to join the military. It is also an outreach to service men and women through encouragement and prayers, and to military families needing assistance while loved ones are deployed. We also visit and provide services to our elderly veterans, and assist communities in military tributes and honors
The Military Outreach Ministry provides service members and their families with a Christian atmosphere, home-cooked meals, sports activities and free transportation to and from the area bases such as Ft. McCoy and Volk Field of Camp Douglas, Wisconsin. The Military Outreach Ministry also provides service members with many opportunities to grow in Christ through outreach ministries on and off the base.
Take a look below for more resources to support our troops, including sending care packages, how to pray for our soldiers and leaders, a special word from one of our fine service members and special links to support, encourage and uphold our military members.
Volk Field – Camp Douglas, WI
A young soldier struggled to find meaning and purpose in life. Now, years later, he is the highest-ranking chaplain in the Pentagon, helping other searching young soldiers find their way. Read his testimony and find out how you too can find purpose through Christ.
