Message From Ministry Leader
EncourageMen Ministries, Inc. was founded in 2009 by two gentlemen and myself to help men build lasting relationships with God and other men through scripture and everyday life experiences.
Over a twelve-year period, more than 500 men have experienced EncourageMen through our areas of ministry:
The Men’s Locker Room: a weekly fellowship with bagels and a cup of coffee currently held at Panera Bread locations in Loganville and Snellville, Georgia. This ministry has grown to over 280 men connecting in fellowship, scripture, small group discussions and most of all growing closer to God;
Blessed to Be a Blessing: a ministry to provide members, friends and others in the community in need of financial assistance with gifts of love;
Incarceration Outreach: an expansion of the Men’s Locker Room held Saturday mornings with inmates at the Gwinnett County Correctional Institution;
Conferences and Retreat: three conferences to empower men to stand firm in their faith, to be accountable and to be strong leaders in their homes and communities. We also hold an annual retreat in Homer, Georgia to allow men to decompress from the stress of society and focus on God speaking to their hearts.
We are expanding our 2020 vision to provide more insightful programs and wider outreach. EncourageMen will introduce its “Discipleship Studies” which will dynamically present Christ in culture to win the lost and help men develop a more intimate relationship with God rather than just learning about Him. This will lead to “The Summit” which will be a retreat for men that will be involved in the Discipleship Studies. The focus will be on relationships that are developed through devotions, prayer, doctrine, worship and encouraging each other towards living with Christ like characteristics in our everyday lives.
Our Goal is to embolden men through our conferences and the annual retreat and inspire them to be Disciples and Disciple Makers. I truly believe that these life changing events will also impact growth in our Men’s Locker Room ministry to expand beyond our two current Panera Bread locations to many other cities and counties. But our efforts to educate and influence others will not reach their maximum effectiveness unless we have the backing of the entire community.
That’s why I am writing to you! You understand the need to motivate and influence the masses. We are seeking donations and we ask for your support and prayers.
