Life Verse: “Greater love has no one than this, that he lays down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13

The History of Cherokee Veterans Community

Cherokee Veterans Community started as a flicker of a dream that God placed into the heart of Timothy King (Tim). Tim, a ten-year veteran in the U.S. Marine Corps felt the pressures of reintegration into civilian life and sought out help and guidance from both the VA and private civilian sector. With God's love and guidance and with the help and guidance from others, and through much prayer he was called to start the Cherokee Veterans Community which has positively affected many veterans and their family's lives.


The Present Cherokee Veterans Community 

Today, the Cherokee Veterans Community has grown into a military ministry that has a multitude of active missions serving our military veterans.


Visit us on any 1st Thursday of each month's meetings... and join with other veterans and volunteers who have said "Yes" to serving.
