It is a great annual St. Louis event, now, as I write, in its 42nd outstanding year. Each year the major event features an outstanding “lay speaker,” successful in his work and living. Often they are quite candid in sharing their “bumps” and “crashes” along the way.
“Wealth Advisor” and breakfast “emcee” Tony Kalinowski explains it.
Chad Robichaux, this year’s speaker, founded and leads the “Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs,” described at www.mightyoaksprograms.org. Their theme is “SAVING LIVES * RESTORING FAMILIES * CHANGING LEGASIES” … with the explanation that “THERE IS NO COST TO WARRIORS FOR MIGHTY OAKS PROGRAMS!”
More than 800 warriors – living with the aftereffects of defending our country, sometimes suicidal — have graduated from the “Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs!” (About 20 veterans a day commit suicide!)
Please, absolutely, DO NOT MISS seeing the powerful five-minute video produced by www.cbn.com, titled “PTSD, Infidelity & Separation– How a Doomed Marriage Was Saved,” found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFgyidv-12o (past the ads.)

“Everything we do is about helping you move from where you are now to the next step in your walk with God. While you may not realize it, you are part of a great adventure! Been hungering to connect with something bigger than yourself? We can relate!
We want to help you get connected with other men who are growing in their faith. No man is an island – we are all stronger together! Want to radically change the world? How about living a life of character and integrity based on principles as solid as a rock …
- The Bible: This is foundational to all that we do. Consistently hearing, reading, studying, memorizing, meditating upon and applying Scripture to our lives is our core.
- Prayer: A lifestyle of faithful prayer is key to growing in intimacy with Jesus Christ.
- Evangelism: Reaching others in the marketplace to share the Gospel with our friends and associates who are not yet convinced of who Jesus really is strengthens our own faith.
- Discipleship: Doing life together… One-on-one study and application of Scripture in our everyday lives transforms us in a way that nothing else can. We walk through life together, sharing our burdens, binding each other’s wounds, and celebrating life’s victories.
- Discussion Groups/Teams: Guys of all ages, ethnic, and cultural groups get together throughout the Greater St. Louis area each week to build relationships and study a variety of relevant topics.
CBMC sponsors St. Louis area open discussion groups – providing men small group informal friendships and encouragement — are available weekly in Alton, Chesterfield, Clayton, Creve Coeur, Downtown St. Louis, Kirkwood, Lake St. Louis, South St. Louis County, and St. Charles.
