Meet your director Gerry Martins
Gerry Martins is a full-time lay Catholic missionary with Family Missions Company, a Louisiana based apostolate. Gerry, his wife Mel and their five children currently live and serve in Augusta in the Diocese of Savannah, Georgia alongside the Alleluia Community. Originally born, raised and living in Asia – Gerry, a professional photographer and Mel, a pre-primary educator had a dramatic ‘encounter’ with the LORD at a retreat and felt called to drop everything and follow HIM. Since then, the LORD has led them into a place of deeper intimacy and transformation with a mission to empower others in the Holy Spirit!
The Encounter School of Ministry is open to Christians of all backgrounds—disciples who believe God calls them to demonstrate His supernatural love in their daily lives. Our curriculum and content is rooted in Catholic Tradition and faithful to Catholic teaching.
In December, the Augusta and Cincinnati Campus Teams joined forces to lead a retreat on identity for the college students of the Alleluia Community and the surrounding region. Hearts were restored and heaven broke open! As Encounter prepares to launch new Satellite Campuses next Fall, this is just the first fruits of the Kingdom connections that Our Lord is making accross the country! More Lord!
