Learn about us

It’s truly amazing how a simple sign can bring so much encouragement to those who see it since 2007 as part of our ministry, and since then, hundreds of people have been impacted by it. As you drive down 76th Street in Milwaukee, you’ll see these signs standing tall and proud, reminding us all that there is hope and love, and encouragement available in this world.

Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

Life can be tough at times, and we all face challenges that test our strength and resilience. But let me tell you, my friend, that no matter what obstacles come your way, you have the power to overcome them with faith in God and encouragement from others. I know this from personal experience. When my wife left me in 2005, it felt like my whole world was crashing down around me. But then something amazing happened – Pastor Ron Sauer and his wife Sue came into my life and encouraged me to start a website dedicated to spreading God’s message of love and hope and encouragement. And so NeedEncouragement.com was born!

Since then, we’ve helped countless people through difficult times by sharing uplifting stories, scriptures, prayers, and resources. If you’re feeling lost or alone today, remember that there is always someone who cares about you – whether it’s a friend or family member here on earth or God Himself above. Take comfort in knowing that you are never truly alone when you put your trust in Him. So keep pushing forward with courage and determination – better days are ahead, so keep your eyes focused on God! ~ Bill Greguska




How To Share Your Faith!

What Is Our Purpose?Love one another!

Our purpose is to encourage and unite our visitors with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. How and why did our ministry start? NeedEncouragement.com began due to my former pastor Ron Sauer and his wife, Sue. We are a Christian ministry whose purpose is to help point people to Jesus Christ! I have learned from experience that encouraging others greatly encourages me when I have problems. You can learn more about us and see how we urge you to help others. ~ Bill Greguska

Mark 12:30-31 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”




God Made Something Good Out Of Something Bad!

Encouragement mobile!

Pastor Ron and Sue Sauer encouraged me to encourage others by sharing God’s word!

What inspired The Encouragement Ministry to begin was that I went through a divorce I did not want.  It first started from my home in 2005 with a 24-hour phone helpline. After two years, I started the website NeedEncouragement.com.
So out of something terrible that happened in my life, God meant it for good by creating this website that has encouraged countless people since 2007. Our goal is to use the Internet to continue to give more capacity to help more people. This ministry of encouragement was established in Milwaukee, WI. Our purpose is to encourage, in a God-honoring way, as many people as possible via the Internet. ~ Bill Greguska

I encourage you to inspire others. I tried to repay Ron and Sue Sauer somehow for all they did to help me. it is essential to have supportive people, even if you are not going through a crisis. I have been blessed with other wonderful people, such as Mark Mallwitz, Dave Briscoe, my mom Diana Greguska, and others who also influenced me.

I attended Elmbrook church for 23 years when Stuart Briscoe was the head pastor. I learned a lot and grew as a Christian. I would never have imaginedhttp://Elmbrook.org that I would have started this ministry, but since 2007, God has made it known to me that this is what I need to do. Encouraging others with the encouragement that I received from God! ~ Bill Greguska

Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You: 

Ephesians 4:11-13 ESV 

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds, and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,

2 Timothy 2:15 ESV 

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

2 Corinthians 6:3-10 ESV

We put no obstacle in anyone’s way so that no fault may be found with our ministry, but as servants of God, we commend ourselves in every way: by great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love; by truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left.

Romans 10:13-15 ESV 

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

1 Timothy 4:12 ESV

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.

Acts 20:24 ESV 

But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

Hebrews 13:7 ESV 

Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.

2 Timothy 4:1-5 ESV 

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears, they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

James 4:10 ESV Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
