BENEFITING: Man Adventures, Inc.
For the last 12 years Encounter (www.encounterministriesonline.org) 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: 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 fourth school year of ministry to college students. Last year we hired Johnny Lieske, our first Director of College Missions to better 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.
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.
