James Hampton was sitting in his tree stand one October evening in 2005 feeling confused about the direction God had for his life. He asked God audibly "Lord, what do you have planned for my life?" James felt God impress this answer on his heart: "I want you to hunt Me like you hunt these animals, and I want you teach other people how to hunt Me and My plan for their lives." Immediately James wrote down what he felt God had spoken and at that moment "Huntin the Truth Ministries" and its mission to "Create and restore relationships with Jesus Christ through hunting and the outdoors" was birthed.
What started out in 2005 as a local ministry that facilitates events for physically challenged men, women, and youth, particularly without father figures or someone to take them hunting, has expanded into a multi-faceted national ministry reaching men and women with the love of Jesus Christ using hunting and the outdoors as a vehicle to build God's kingdom. "Huntin the Truth Ministries" has three parts. Our local ministry and home chapter are located in Attica, Michigan. The local ministry continues to facilitate events for physically challenged men, women, and youth such as deer hunts, turkey hunts, pheasant hunts, and fishing tournaments. The local ministry of Huntin the Truth has seen God touch the lives of many people in the community through these events and the relationships that have been built!
Huntin the Truth Ministries chapter development program began in 2010 and has grown to 8 chapters across the United States allowing the ministry to expand their platform of influence to a national level. Huntin the Truth assists local church leaders with launching and developing chapters as an outreach of their local church with chapters in states such as Michigan, Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, and New York. These chapters have the same general mission statement and also have a focus on ministering to youth and physically challenged men and women.
The national speaking ministry has also allowed the message and mission of Huntin the Truth Ministries to expand across the United States. Founders of Huntin the Truth Ministries, James and Chad Hampton, preach the gospel and teach people "how to hunt God" at events such as wild game dinners, men's/youth hunting camps, Men's ministry events, conferences, retreats, prayer breakfasts, and speak at church services.
2018 brings the launch of the new Huntin The Truth Outdoor Online Church! This outdoor online ministry was created with a vision to reach hunters and outdoorsmen with the Gospel of Jesus Christ who do not attend a local church, and disciple christian hunters and outdoorsmen to "create a community of hunters and outdoorsmen who hunt God and His plan for our lives together"!

The MISSION FIRST Teen Readiness Initiative is a project funded by the proceeds of this website and other sales under the 'Murican Tactical Sales Group. We've created the most detailed lesson plans for volunteers to give teens the resources and tools they need to be college and career ready. The program in each city around the nation is staffed by individual volunteers, college faculty, staff, and students, law enforcement officials, church mebers, business owners, and managers from various departments. What we're going is very different because all of the program material is provided to each facilitator and is detailed in a way that anyone can pick it up and simply follow the guide. We also have help resources available as well as tips on how to connect with your community.
The 41 lesson plans (currently) cover:

Help for Heroes supports those with injuries and illnesses sustained while serving in the British Armed Forces. No matter when someone served, we give them the support they need to lead active, independent and fulfilling lives. Our specialist team focuses on the five key areas of an individual’s life: medical, mind, body, spirit and family. We provide support to the whole family to help them all cope with the challenges they face. Long-term recovery is more than repairing damaged bodies and minds; it’s about rebuilding lives.
Mission 22 has three major programs. Funding veterans to receive treatment for Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they may be facing through our many partner organizations, large scale public art to honor veterans and creating social impact for the issues veterans are facing today,
There are memorials dedicated to the fallen warriors of nearly every major conflict in our country’s history. They remind us of the sacrifice, they honor those we’ve lost, and they tie civilian to soldier. But there is no national monument for those who have fallen in the war against Veteran suicide.
With your support, we’re going to build one. Let’s raise a monument—and awareness. We’ll be working with community leaders in locations like Washington DC and New York City to create a permanent exhibit to pay tribute to those we have lost here at home.
The last year our goals for awareness have not only been met but far surpassed what we could have even hoped for. The Mission 22 campaign has brought veteran issues to millions of people so that they too can make a difference. Awareness precedes change and without it we can not heal our nation.
WAR AT HOME MEMORIAL
The monument construction has been completed. We will be honored 20 veterans who lost their life here at home after serving our country abroad. Please see the Memorial page for photos and to follow progress of the monument as it travels around the United States. At the location the monument was built we also have a healing art shop where veterans can come and create metal art while they focusing on healing. For more info on the memorial please click here.
VETERAN TREAMENT PROGRAMS
Mission 22 has comprehensive programs to treat veterans suffering from PTS and TBI. We also have partnered with other organizations that offer amazing services to veterans as well as doctors and treatment facilities across the country. The VA is a great resource but they are understaffed and underfunded. With your help we can get our veterans the help they need now, without the wait. Our partner organizations specialize in Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, substance abuse and all of the issues veterans are facing today.

About the Blue Campaign
Blue Campaign is a national public awareness campaign, designed to educate the public, law enforcement and other industry partners to recognize the indicators of human trafficking, and how to appropriately respond to possible cases. Blue Campaign works closely with DHS Components to create general awareness training and materials for law enforcement and others to increase detection of human trafficking, and to identify victims.
Located within the Office of Partnership and Engagement, Blue Campaign leverages partnerships with the private sector, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO), law enforcement and state/local authorities to maximize national public engagement on anti-human trafficking efforts. Blue Campaign’s educational awareness objectives consists of two foundational elements, prevention of human trafficking and protection of exploited persons.
