Our Mission

As military life takes so much, it gives a lot in return.  Our Mission is to keep giving back. "Scared Rising" contains so many aspects of life that can be used for self-development and pursuit of actualization. Beyond those pages, it is our mission to acknowledge, build awareness, and give back!
IV Ventures and Apparel offers attire that will help support and generate awareness for non-profit organizations Navy Special Operations Foundation, Folded Flag Foundation, NAUI Green Diver Initiative, and Elevate Life Church: Above and Beyond.  Shirt designs will be paired with a respective charity and 30% of profits will be donated!

Elevate Life's Above + Beyond.

Domestic and international missions where we help people encounter God, embrace others and elevate their world. This means everything our church does is aimed at helping people:
Experience God in a personal relationship through Jesus Christ.
Build life-giving relationships and authentic community.
Discover and develop their God-given purpose that makes a difference in the world.

We understand through our experience what our families and operators need so they can stay in the fight and persevere through the most difficult circumstances.
