What Is Our Purpose?
Our goal is to encourage anyone who is hurting because God cares everyone. In part, this ministry came from the dedication, love, and compassion of my former pastor Ron Sauer and wife Sue while I was having difficulties with my marriage, pointing me to Jesus Christ for the strength I needed to make it through. I asked them what I could do to repay them for all the help, love, compassion, wisdom, and strength they demonstrated to me in my time of trouble.
Ron and Sue just asked me to comfort others with the comfort that I have received. The thought of starting a ministry kept echoing in my heart and mind until God led me to start this encouragement ministry, reaching out to people who were going through life troubles similar to the ones that I have gone through with God’s help.
Why Do We Care?
The fact is, God never left me, and won’t leave any of us, during the darkest times in our lives. Psalm 9:9 “The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.” When I realize what God has done in my life (helping me make it through life struggles drugs and alcohol addiction, depression, not to mention a painful divorce, and all kinds of other types of stress) the response the Lord put on my heart was to share what had worked for me with others. To be totally honest, I care about others, because God cared about me first, and I have learned that He want us to love Him with our entire heart, mind, and soul and to love others as we would want others to love us.
Where Did Need Encouragement Ministry Began?
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.
What Do We Base Our Faith Upon?
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.
