THE STORY:


For the last 13 years Encounter (www.encounterministriesonline.org) has worked from Alabama to Africa to play a vital role in the restoration of hearts in the world and bring freedom and life in Christ to hurting and hungry people. The money from this fundraiser will fuel mission work in 4 main areas: Spiritual Direction, College Ministry, Prison Ministry, and Humanitarian Outreach


Spiritual Direction: Encounter provides spiritual direction and intervention to couples, families, men, and pastors in crisis. Many don't have a safe place to discuss the struggles of their lives or help interpreting what God is up to in that life. We work closely with them to move toward freedom and a deeper life walking more intimately with Christ.


College Ministry: Encounter is entering it's fifth school year of ministry to college students. Johnny Lieske, our Director of College Missions is entering his third year working to reach students by creating an environment at The Campus House to provide a place for students to connect, study, engage God, and develop community.


Prison Ministry: Encounter trains, equips, and takes teams into prison to facilitate weekend events for inmates. Based on John Eldredge's Wild at Heart Boot Camp, inmates learn how to uncover the wounds dealt by the evil one, turn to God for healing, and to walk with him inside and outside the walls of the prison unit. All of these inmates are within 6 months of heading back into the free world. In the last six years we’ve served over 800 inmates.


Humanitarian Outreach: Encounter continues to raise funds, provide aid and increase awareness regarding the orphan, abandoned child, HIV Epidemic in Lesotho. Through our partnership with LifeTrek Global and The Bana Project of Lesotho basic humanitarian needs and educational fees are provided for villages, orphans, and abandoned children. Encounter also provides financial aid to local families in special circumstances.


AND STARTING FALL 2017

Project Oxygen:  Through our developing project with Chris Corder and Todd Geralds (author of the book Woodlawn) we will be working to equip church leaders and individuals from college students to CEOs to understand how they were created specifically in God's image, how they are wired from the heart up, and how to effective connect and lead others with this new understanding.


Encounter (aka Man Adventures, Inc.) is an IRS approved 501(c)3 you will receive a receipt for tax purposes.
