THE STORY:

I am raising money for Encounter (aka Man Adventures, Inc.) I have been involved with Encounter personally and provided them financial support for a couple of years now.  Encounter helps men become the leaders that God intended and battle the daily challenges of living in a fallen world.  Chris Roe's spiritual direction ministry of "me too" that focuses on fighting isolation helped me get through chemo for Leukemia last year.  Find out more about Encounter here: http://www.encounterministriesonline.org/ 

For the last 11 years Encounter has worked from Alabama to Africa to bring freedom and life in Christ to hurting and hungry people. The money from this fundraiser will fuel mission work in 4 main areas:

  1. 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.
  2. College Ministry: Encounter has been teaching a small group of students on the UAB Campus for several semesters, and now is expanding in Fall 2015. Encounter has hired our first Director of College Missions who will be ministering to students and creating an environment with our partner ministry, The Campus House to provide a place for students to connect, study, engage God, and develop community.
  3. 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.
  4. Humanitarian Outreach: Encounter continues to 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 provide financial aid to local families in special circumstances..

Please help me in supporting Encounter,

Al
