Point Man International Ministries is a Christian Veteran Advocacy non-profit organization formed in 1984 in the State of Washington by some Army Special Forces Vietnam Veterans. They identified very early on the need for a spiritual dimension in the dealing and healing from the rigors of war. The organization was initially established to support Vietnam Veterans and their families, but has since expanded to reach soldiers and veterans of all wars. The healing power of the message of Jesus Christ is at the core of their mission as they the message of freedom, hope, and reconciliation to their brothers in arms, through education, one on one counseling, support groups, retreats , workshops and conferences.
Unlike other victims of traumas, war veterans carry scars that few humans ever experience. While the ministry of Point Man is helping veterans, “make peace with the past,” most all the Outpost Leaders have experienced some form of combat and the residual Post Traumatic Stress symptoms, allowing them a unique bonding trait with a gifted ability to literally walk “point,” with a combat veteran on a patrol to a newly liberated life. Point Man appreciates all of the Outreach programs now offered across the nation, be they the Veterans Administration or the panoply of non-profits. PMIM simply wishes to add the spiritual dimension to the healing process which by their faith believe is the way to “the peace that surpasses all understanding.”
We are most fortunate to have one of those long standing Outposts in Hesperia,California. The additional plum, is that the State of California Coordinator, Alan Kumlin, heads that Outpost.
