2024 areas of growth & support

Our heart is that we could equip more students regardless of means to advance the kingdom in their spheres of influence. Our goal is to provide students without means access to a two-year scholarship to complete the Encounter School of Ministry.

  • 50 full scholarships and 100 partial scholarships for both young adults and Church leaders in serious financial need to attend the Encounter School.
  • These scholarship funds will be available across all campuses through a scholarship application for the 2024-2025 ESM school year (details to be released after the conclusion of the campaign).


We want to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth, especially in places that are hard to reach and need our support. Lebanon is the last Christian nation in the Middle East and has been experiencing economic distress. We are partnering with the community United in Christ in Beirut, Lebanon to launch the first Arabic speaking satellite campus.


  • Cover all the expenses of the Encounter School leader formation for United in Christ leaders to launch an ESM Satellite Campus in Beirut.
  • Provide the travel expenses to Michigan for the Beirut Campus satellite leader training conference.
  • Cover all expenses for Encounter Leaders to hold a free conference in Beruit at the invitation of Bishop César Essayan OFM to plant seeds for the satellite campus in Beirut.

We believe God has a desire to be a part of healing not only in our churches but also in the medical field.  We are launching a network of medical professionals passionate about partnering with the Holy Spirit in their field and seeing God move in medicine.  We will also be launching our first-ever Kingdom Medicine Conference.


  • Organizational expenses needed to launch the Kingdom Medicine Network.
  • Funds to support the formation of a Kingdom Medical Conference.

The Inner Healing and Freedom Ministry offers FREE sessions from trained facilitators via the Zoom video-conferencing platform to participants worldwide. Since the launch of this ministry, there has been global life-changing fruit and ever increasing demand. In order to ensure the highest level of quality and accountability, we pay our facilitators for their work.

  • Expenses for 400 inner healing and freedom sessions to the general public.
  • Train new facilitators to meet the demand of session requests.
  • Expand sessions to include Spanish, French, and German.


It’s the goal of our Media Team to testify to what God is doing in the Church, through Encounter Ministries and through YOU. Testimony is prophecy for what God has done and will do again.  Your gift would assist our media team to capture powerful doctor-verified healings to share with the world, as well as help fund upcoming documentaries.


  • Up to 4 high-end media projects that communicate the supernatural power of God breaking into the world and made available to the Church for free.

Encounter Ministries is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to train and disciple Catholics to demonstrate the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit in the world around them. Through our School of Ministry, conferences, training events, healing services and special ministries, we provide the best opportunities possible to empower disciples to love like Jesus. Over the upcoming year, we hope to provide scholarships for prospective students, bring Encounter Ministries to Lebanon, launch the Kingdom Medicine initiative, help our media team capture powerful testimonies, and expand our Inner Healing and Freedom program.
