Happy Friday! Check it out: Here we have some insider footage of what it’s like to ski the Birkie. This is a go-pro recording of @bevisben taking on this year’s 2021 race just a few weeks ago.

We are so grateful to our Encircled friends and family that supported us in raising $16,000 to help encircle students at our new partnerships!

If you missed our Birkie fundraiser in February, there is still time to donate in our link in bio to help a skier meet their goal.

“Encircled identifies for the students the gifts that they have and helps them understand what those gifts will mean for them as they move forward in their faith journey. Beyond that, Encircled allows them to share those gifts with those who surround them to have encouragement and guidance as they move forward.”

⁃Encircled Parent

It’s not just about knowing your giftedness, but figuring out how you can celebrate it with the world around you.

Join Encircled and bring your circle together to speak into your giftedness as you look into the future.

Encircled is a method of learning how God can work through you and your gifts!

Although you may be surrounded by supportive friends, family, and faith community now, these people are likely to shift as you grow and go out into the world. Encircled encourages students to surround themselves with people who want to commit to supporting them in living out their giftedness.

Our method takes intentional time to put 16-18 year olds in the drivers seat of exploring their gifts and developing a circle of support. The three meeting process allows students to meet with a coach and create a plan for their long-term faith journey.

“I am living out my giftedness through personal ministry and discipleship in Alaska. It's quite surreal to be living out my purpose post-college 🙂  God has thoroughly equipped me to deeply love and encourage my students (though our youth group is small) by gifting me with the ability to develop, mentor, and teach youth, through the love of Christ. Yet not I, but through Christ in me.”

- Katie, Encircled Student

Encircled wants to celebrate our students as they head out into the world and live out the giftedness that God has given them! Find out how you can make Encircled part of your faith community at www.Encircled.org

Let’s get right to it— because intentionality is a big part of what Encircled is about! We know you probably have a community surrounding you right now, just like you probably know what some of your gifts are.

Encircled takes the time out of your busy schedule and puts intentionality behind creating a plan as you launch into adulthood. Our method empowers you to look closer at your gifts— and how you can use the things God has equipped you with to interact with the world. Encircled takes the time to bring your circle together in one place (the Encircle Your Life meeting!) to commit to your long-term journey.

What are you waiting for? Take the time to build an intentional circle and learn about what you can do with your giftedness with the Encircled method!

Encircled is a three meeting process that leads students through discovering their gifts, determining how these will impact their long-term faith journey, and coming together with a circle of people who care about the student to sustain them.

Encircled students are in the drivers seat— the Encircled method wants to help students to confidently and actively pursue the giftedness that God has given them!

We know that God has made every person with giftedness — Encircled wants to be the method to help you create a plan for how you can live it out.

“Encircled has helped me realize how I want to be involved through goals and ideas by putting them down on paper.” — Jens, Encircled Student

Figuring out your gifts is just the beginning! With Encircled’s method, students who have identified their gifts work with a coach to create an active circle and a map for their personal journey.

“I am living out my giftedness by serving on the student leadership team for Cru.

Cru is my college campus’s main Christian organization. God has given me the opportunity to use my Woo to invite other freshman who are curious about faith in Jesus to attend Cru meetings.”
