Locals love The Warrior Network because they love the local servicemen and women. Trey McGuire, founder of the Warrior Network, felt compelled to bring together Shreveport-Bossier’s military members into community. “We are a family,” he says. “Families do life together, and so do we...from camping, eating, even celebrating Christmas together.” From that, many military families have benefited from the compassion TWN shares.
What really sets TWN apart, is that Trey is there for the military men and women during the good and hard times. Just ask Christopher H., who feels very thankful for the work TWN has done after spending three weeks in the hospital. “Thank you for ensuring my comfort, and being there. What you are doing is making a difference!”

The Warrior Network is a network of military members and families as well as community members who love and support our military community. The goal of the network is to serve our military through four specific avenues.
1. Help them GROW in their faith and as men and women.
2. Provide FAMILY while they are away from their home, family and friends.
3. Take CARE of them physically, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
4. Help CONNECT them to our community churches and other community partners.
We also host events, such as the annual Warrior's Thanksgiving Feast, fundraisers, service projects, etc. as service to and way of showing appreciation for our military community.
Every Sunday night, The Network meets up for our weekly Community Group.
These groups consist of everything from teaching, prayer, friends, dinner, cookouts, stories, and more. Out of these groups that meet in a living room on Base, we have seen people overcome struggles, prayers answered, lifelong friendships begin, lives changed, etc. These are specifically designed for military members and families (yes, we do take care of the kids) and consist of people from all over the "spiritual" spectrum, including unchurched and not even interested, people who are searching, people with questions, people who have a church home, etc.
