About Encircled

​Encircled was developed to address the need for students to have a sustainable faith. This is possible with guided support of parents and mentors through churches and organizations utilizing the Encircled process. Encircled desires to equip faith communities to help reverse the trend of students leaving the church.

Our process helps your 16-18 year old discover how God has gifted them and allows them to create a vision for their future using those gifts. Encircled brings a team of people, their “Circle”, who love and believe in your student to intentionally walk alongside them as they launch into their God-purpose.

Our Founder

Ben Bevis, MA, LMFT
I’m Ben Bevis and I have a passion for helping youth discover how God has uniquely wired them to impact their world. The teenage years are exciting and messy. In my work with youth and families over the last 24 plus years, as a youth worker, licensed therapist and father, I have learned that teenagers desire to be surrounded by people who understand, love, support and walk alongside them as they live out their vision for the future. That’s why I created the program called Encircled. This program is designed to help youth discover God’s vision for their life, invite and connect them with their circle of support, and launch into the future.
