The Mighty 30
A Veteran's Ministry
The Mighty 30 is a veteran’s ministry in Frederick County, Maryland. The organization is a new endeavor and started its ministry on 10 November 2022 to help veterans regain their spiritual health. The organization is currently working on getting non-profit status and hopes to complete it before the end of 2023. The Mighty 30 is based on the Mighty Men of David, and according to 1 Chronicles 11:10, “Now these are the chiefs of David’s might men, who gave him strong support in his kingdom, together with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the Lord concerning Israel.” The Mighty Men of David in the Old Testament are the soldiers that helped King David establish his kingdom.
1 Chronicles 12:8 tell us, “From the Gadities there went over to David at the stronghold in the wilderness mighty and experienced warriors, expert with shield and spear, who faces were like the faces of lions and who were swift as gazelles upon the mountains.” These soldiers were the best from different tribes and nations that came together to fight for David. These soldiers, like our service members today, come from other parts of the country and protect and defend our great nation.
Mission Statement: The mission is to provide spiritual care and to bring the promise of hope, healing, wholeness, and balance to persons experiencing the blessings and brokenness of human life to the veterans in Frederick County and surrounding areas by teaching CPE to chaplains and local religious leaders.
Vision Statement: The vision for this ministry is to assist veterans in their journey to restore their spiritual health and to live life every day to the fullest to train and educate religious leaders about the moral injuries of veterans.

“The brave men and women, who serve their country and as a result, live constantly with the war inside them, exist in a world of chaos. But the turmoil they experience isn’t who they are; the PTSD invades their minds and bodies.”
