Learn A Little Bit About Our Ministry

Be encouraged, then encourage others is one of the main ideas of this website! Learn more about us!

Our purpose it to encourage and unite one another with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. How and why did our ministry start? Our ministry began as a result of the help my former pastor Ron Sauer and his wife, Sue Sauer. They helped me while I was going through some very hard times in my marriage.
I wanted to repay them somehow for all they did to help me. That is when Sue planted the seed in my mind to help others which lead to me start this Encouragement Ministry. Also, Mark Mallwitz was another key person who has encouraged me along with Dave Briscoe and a few others such as my mom Diana Greguska. It is very important to have family and friends offer support in your life, even if you are not going through a crisis of any kind.

This website started in 2007 to encourage others in a similar way that others have encouraged me in my life. This ministry of encouragement was established in Milwaukee, WI. Our purpose is to encourage as many people possible who are interested in a God-honoring way via the Internet.


Be sure to tell others about us!


The Encouragement Ministry started out of my home back in 2005 with a 24-hour phone helpline. After two years with the phone ministry, the website NeedEncouragement.com started up. The Internet seems to have a bigger capacity to get more people to visit it which in turn could help more people. One of my biggest prayers and purpose in my life is to encourage others like you who come to this website.

When / Where Did Need Encouragement Ministry Begin?

Learn about us and get encouraged!

A little bit more about us is that this Encouragement Ministry started out of my home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, first as a 24-Hour Encouragement Help Phone Line in the winter of 2005 that was up and running for about 5 years until I decided that more people were using the website, so I changed over completely in 2007, when I expanded the ministry into the current website NeedEncouragement.com. I was encouraged to start it because of all the help Pastor Ron and Sue Sauer have me to help save my marriage.


The wonderful thing about God is he knows what we need to persuade us. ~ Charles R. Swindoll

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.


What Does Hope Have To Do With Encouragement?

Consider this… Your thoughts are like a train engine, and the caboose is like your feelings. The problem comes in when we allow our feelings to run the train rather than sound knowledge and wisdom.

You need to have hope that your situation will improve and have faith that God is the answer to all your difficulties, then you will be on the right track. It is not necessarily about finding happiness in your life, but rather about finding God

  • When you are experiencing physical problems, God works through medical people to give you hope.
  • When you are experiencing relationship problems, God works through pastors and counselors to give you hope.
  • When you are experiencing any problems in your life, God works through people to help you find the hope that you need when you come to Him with all your difficulties and have faith that He is in control, not you!

I really like this quote by Alphonsus Liguori, “Just as a mother finds pleasure in taking her little child on her lap, there to feed and caress him, in like manner our loving God shows His fondness for His beloved souls who have given themselves entirely to Him and have placed all their hope in His goodness.” 


Psalm 46:1 God Is Our Refuge And Strength, An Ever Present Help In Times Of Trouble.

I hope and pray that this website will be a tool to help give you or others you know, the encouragement that you are looking for! 

Thank you and may God bless you, as you allow Him to walk with you in each and every one of your circumstances that you are experiencing in your life.

It’s Important What You Focus Your Attention On!

Try to make love and encouragement your way of living each and every day!

Of course, you need to focus on things that are good and Godly for your life. If you are struggling with stress or anger, then you need to focus on those areas. If you are struggling with an alcohol or drug problem, or possibly struggling with pornography or any other type of addiction you need to educate get help for yourself in whatever area you are more weak in.

But also remember, sometimes helping and encouraging others is the best way to help yourself. Remember how good you felt the last time when you focused on helping someone else. Now think how good you will feel encouraging others on a regular basis, not to mention how others will feel so much better too! Isn’t that what makes life worth living?

A little disclaimer, do not think you can do it all in your own power, you need to trust God and his word when He tells us to love one another, so when you encourage others, you will be doing God’s will, and you, in turn, will be blessed for your honoring of God. Romans 13:8

In the mean time keep praying and seeking Godly wisdom through His word and through the variety of helpful information on this website and our many pages. ~ Bill Greguska

About Us And What We Believe

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, the maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; he suffered and was buried, and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Spirit the Lord and Giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; who spoke by the Prophets. And I believe one holy Catholic and Apostolic Church; I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
