August 17- 18
Jeremy M. Stalnecker
USMC Infantry Officer/Iraq Veteran
Navy Commendation Medal with “V” for Combat Valor
Executive Director of Mighty Oaks Foundation
Jeremy was commissioned as an officer in the United States Marine Corps in 1999 and was deployed to Iraq in 2003 as the platoon commander of a counter-mechanized platoon. This platoon ended up being a part of the initial push into Iraq at the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom and the eventual capture of one of Saddam Hussein’s key palaces. Just one month after returning from Iraq, Jeremy became a staff member at his home church, Coastline Baptist in Oceanside, CA. Eventually he would move on to be the Senior Pastor of a congregation in the San Francisco Bay area. This was a time used greatly by God to prepare him for what would come. His heart for his Marines and the lessons learned in Iraq, combined with his ministry experience as a pastor, have uniquely equipped Jeremy for God to use him to mightily lead men towards a life of purpose and to rise up in order to be the leaders that they were created to be. His path uniquely qualified him to lead at Mighty Oaks as the Executive Director.
