Battle Scarred: Veterans and Military Conference
This one-day event is set to provide veterans, current service members, and family members with a day of insightful speakers, encouraging Scripture teachings, and riveting stories, all wrapped in genuine love. There will be resources, support, and authentic community, bringing encouragement and healing as they embrace their identity and worth in Christ.
The conference will be focused on giving veterans immediate help. Our desire is to not just supply information to the veterans but to show them the love of Jesus through action and assure them that they are seen, heard, and loved. We will be partnering with local agencies to assist with veteran housing, counseling, and jobs on-site at the conference.CONTENT:• Healing in Jesus-Some wounds may seem too impossible to recover from and feel beyond healing, yet Jesus is the ultimate healer who desires to make us whole.• Dealing with PTSD-Serving in the military and being a part of war causes many scars both externally and internally. PTSD is real and affects many, yet it is something that can be dealt with and does not determine your worth.• Struggling with Faith through Tragedy-Life presents many hardships and difficulties that lead to the questioning of faith. The reality is that it’s okay not to be okay. But it's important that we not stay there. Ask the hard questions, walk through the difficulties, and call upon God. You are not alone.• Valued in Christ-Despite the brokenness and hardships that many face, each are still valued and treasured by God.SPEAKERS:• Jimmy Orate (senior pastor, Calvary Chapel Rancho Cucamonga/Transformation Church)-Vietnam combat veteran, having served with the 1/9 1st.
