Over the years, Panera has become my Study oasis on Saturday Mornings. I decided on Panera over Starbucks, IHOP and the library because of a phenomenon that occurs at Panera early on Saturday mornings. A group of men, and not a small group, gather together to dive deeper into their faith, together.

Men need an intimate community where they can be real with their struggles and experience authentic connection and engagement with others aspiring to live fully for Christ. EncourageMen Ministries provides a safe yet challenging environment for men to do just that.

I've been apart of EncourageMen for almost two years and I must say that I prayed for God to send me a group of men like this. I've been blessed at every meeting I've attended.

It’s a safe place for men to build faith, friendship and character. I never leave the Bible study without feeling stronger in my walk with Jesus!

I can't remember who invited me. All that I can remember is sitting in a seat during my very first time meeting. It was at least 20 men of all walks of life sharing their story filled with difficulties and opportunities. These 20 or so men that believe in the same God that I believe, going through the same things that I've been through

EncourageMen has been an amazing blessing to me to be able to receive. The true blessing however has been when I get to bring the Word to our group of amazing men. Thank you Lord for this amazing group of men to be led by and to lead.

EncourageMen is exactly as the name implies. It has truly been a blessing and an honor for me to have the opportunity to be involved in such a wonderful group. I've been blessed in more ways than words can describe.

I’ve been a part of EncourageMen for the last 3 years and the men have seen me in both up and down times. I've been on the giving and the receiving end of encouragement and it makes a big difference. I’ve made friends and established a brotherhood that otherwise would not have happened.

EncouargeMen is all about transparency. It's about being real with each other. Real enough to admit your mistakes. Real enough to man up and make some changes where necessary.

Real enough to realize your God given strengths.  Real enough to use those strengths and experience to help others.

It’s so easy to think and feel like you’re the only one with struggles, shortcomings and guilt.  EncourageMen is not only a group of men that helps one another deal with the issues of life but also provides a safe place for men to be open and honest about the issues we face.  This is not a bible study….it’s not a prayer meeting……

In 2009 I was invited to meet with some friends on a Saturday morning to discuss life.  The more we met, the more I began to share my hardship, joys, etc… with them. Those meetings led to the development of EncourageMen.  This became a place where I am able to have men support me when I am low points and rejoice in my victories. …

EncourageMen provides me with a sanctuary where I can openly share my experiences with other men without fear of condemnation. Getting up early on a Saturday morning to attend meetings can sometimes prove to be a struggle, but I am never left disappointed after spending time with this group of men.…

I’ve been attending the EncourageMen men’s fellowship breakfast for about 2 years now. After being persistently “encouraged” attending the meetings by Leon Byrd on numerous occasions, I finally decided to attend. For me, 7:00 am on a Saturday morning was usually reserved for catching up on sleep after a long week.

Hello brothers in Christ, several years ago I was in Atlanta for business. I called one of my brothers, Leon, and asked if he and the Men of EncourageMen still got together on Saturday mornings for coffee, bagels and to share their faith. He said yes and bright and early Saturday morning I was greeted by 25-30 men.

Hey guys- This is a letter that I received from a peer in Raleigh, NC. I just love how the message and good news spreads across the land at Panera. Hello everyone, I just wanted to say how touched I was by Juanita's story. It's sad to say that there aren't many out there willing to just do good for the sake of doing good and I was moved to tears

I just thought I would share with you how what ya'll have done for Juanita is spreading throughout Panera. I passed this along to a couple of individuals that pass certain communications on to the rest of the 'Panera World'. This is what got posted to a website that is called Panera Connect.
