The author presents healing from war, trauma, and PTSD as a problem in ministry for veterans and the church at large. He created a time-based intervention in nature with combat veterans who have a 30% or higher rating on the Veterans Administration PTSD scale. He recruited eleven participants. He used the Likert scale as instrumentation for the intervention. The author discovered overall support for the hypothesis using a paired t-test to gauge for statistical significance as well as overall increase in serenity and/or connection with God through the intervention. The author offered ministry recommendations.
