FOR MANY SOLDIERS AND THEIR FAMILIES, LIFE HAS BEEN FOREVER CHANGED BY THE EXPERIENCE OF DEPLOYMENT AND MOBILIZATION. MAYSLAKE MINISTRIES HAS DEVELOPED A TWO-PART OUTREACH MINISTRY TO SERVE THEIR NEEDS.
Coming Home: A Free Christian retreat program designed to help military men and women come to spiritual healing and reconciliation with God, themselves and with one another. There is NO charge for this retreat for our vets.
Finding Strength, and For Those Who Wait: Free spiritual support groups and spiritual direction for spouses and family members while they wait for their loved one to return.
“I walked in feeling nervous and anxious, unsure of what to expect at this retreat. Within the first hour I felt more relaxed and at home than I have in years. These people “get it.” After my retreat, I have slept with regular dreams, no nightmares. I can now see that my PTSD is a small piece of my puzzle that can be managed instead of a HUGE thing that defines me. This retreat gave me hope and saved my marriage.” Marc and Michele, US Army
