About Us

Helping Other Brothers and Sisters get over their hill.

Our Mission is Simple:

To provide spiritual, emotional, and physical healing among veterans, military, and their families. 

To provide leadership into veteran and military revival in helping them be empowered and established in fresh purpose.

We accomplish this through peer to peer programs or appointments that guide fellow warriors into faith and encounter with Jesus for healing through faith building coaching, teaching and healing prayer ministry.

We will never turn away anyone seeking healing, even if they do not believe in God or Jesus Christ.  We will always give God the chance to show His love and mercy to anyone.  We give them a chance to know Him.

Our Vision:

To help end 8030 military and veteran suicides a year (22 /day) through PTSD healing.

Establish peer to peer trauma healing retreat centers for veterans, military, and their families.

Veteran Healing Prayer Hotlines.

Establish peer to peer veteran led healing walk-in centers for providing healing appointments and programs for veterans, military and their families near VA and Military Hospitals, and in all major cities.

To help bring restorative and renewed life in War/Conflict-Torn nations

Partner with Veteran Supporters to bring this into reality.

Our Senior Leader David Bickford has been licensed in Pastoral, Evangelism and Healing Christian Ministries in order to help build and coach teams and empower them to bring healing ministry to the veterans community and beyond.

2 or ​3 day weekend veteran healing retreats available for veterans and military nationwide.

Offering local or online appointments, making services available throughout Eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia.  This includes cities, military installations and VA treatment centers that include Baltimore, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Washington DC, the Army War College, Fort Indiantown Gap PA, Fort Detrick Md, Fort Meade Md, Bethesda Naval Hospital and military installations in Washington DC and Northern Virginia.  

We are a mobile veteran’s healing ministry and seek to hold retreats in new locations in order to reproduce veterans healing ministry to those locations and reach more veterans. We seek partners who are interested in hosting 2 or 3 day healing retreats for veterans or active military at their organization/hotel/convention center/ veterans service organization/ ministry / government agency or church.


We offer teaching events and healing services focused on emotional and physical healing.  Our goal is to help heal and multiply so that others who are healed are empowered to lead healing ministry in their locations.  If you are interested in conducting or partnering to provide a location/accommodations for a 2 or 3 day veterans healing and restoration retreat or to start a veterans healing ministry, visit our Invite page to learn more.

We are establishing international opportunities for teams of veterans to conduct nation building and missions trips.  To learn more visit our Operation Restoration Page.
