EncourageMale - August 2019 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding" (Prov. 3:5)
The summer is here and it is also the middle of the year. As with all of us, this year has been "different" BUT God has continued to be faithful. If you find yourself in a position to financially help a ministry that continues to impact men and the community for Christ, please prayerfully consider doing so. We've helped many, seen lives impacted personally and professionally, families strengthened, men have come to know Christ, and we have many plans for the 2nd half of the year. We can impact so many but only with help . . . DONATE HERE . . . Thank you!
Gathering Highlights
Thank you  ... to our faithful participants, prayer warriors, and financial supporters who continue to help us during this season.

This past month  ... we engaged men to be fully alive in several ways:

  • Moody Radio Interview ... thank you to Moody Radio 'Mornings w/ Eric & Bridgette' show. They had us on air and allowed us to “shine the light” on our Weekly Podcasts, County-wide Groups, Outreach Breakfast & much more! Enjoy the interview. LISTEN
  • New Dad Classes ... Continuing to plan for the re-opening of our Boot Camp For New Dads. 7 County-wide locations host these classes for dads featuring veteran dads, babies, and our team of coaches. MORE INFO
  • Is sexual purity a problem ... We've begun in-person mtgs in Lake Worth and Loxahatchee. The groups equip men, and leaders of men, with tools they can use and share with others. Loxahatchee INFO | Lake W. INFO
  • As Churches reopen ... Now that churches are reopening, pastors are dealing w/ concerns they've not been trained for. Let's pray for them! Here are 9 ways to prayer for our pastors as churches as they reopen. READ
  • Brag On God - 4 calls this month as I headed into mtgs. “Can you tell the guys to pray for ...”. I follow up and hear, “my wife is good; the deal closed; it worked out; God is cool.”
  • Message from personal friend & local Pastor. "Not sure if you caught wind but I'm in JFK South with COVID 19 for the last 10 days. But I'm on the other side of it now." #stay strong
  • During this month I've witnessed more public yelling matches from all age groups and cultures in various settings. People are on edge! Us "Light Bearers" can easily stand out.

As you consider  ... how God would have you walk through this season, we ask you to please prayerfully consider giving financially to The Gathering. Our margins are  SLIM  but our  TRUST  in God's provision is great! DONATE HERE
