E 3 - ECUBED INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATIONAL SUPPORTING SCRIPTURE Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (New American Standard Bible) But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called "Today,“ so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. Hebrews3:13 (New American Standard Bible) Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. Ephesians 4:29 (New Living Translation)
WHY Do WE Want To Do This We hope to encourage the spiritual and physical lives of the following audiences: SPIRITUALPHYSICAL HS StudentsPeople with Special Needs College StudentsSingle Mothers and Widows Single AdultsUnemployed and Underemployed Married AdultsOrphans Single Mothers and WidowsVictims of sexual abuse Corporate and Global Leaders Pre-Teens
HOW Do We Hope To Accomplish This We hope by creating ministries and contributing to existing ministries, medical and social organizations in order to accomplish our mission. The ministries that we hope to create are as follows:
PEER MENTORING FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS PURPOSE: To encourage wayward, immature Christian College students to make God their number one pursuit through “one on one” mentoring and eventual small group membership.
PURPOSE: Widows and Single Moms are encouraged in their faith by providing them with: 1)homes in order to be used for outreach 2)“One on one” mentoring Believers are encouraged to be outreach minded in their socialization. Non-Believers are encouraged to meet their Savior through social interaction with His existing followers. PURPOSE: HIGH SCHOOL, CORPORATE and WORLD leaders are encouraged to either meet their Savior or get to know Him better through one on one and group discipleship.
A Web based idea exchange for pastors to share church sign ideas that will encourage non-believers to consider and accept Christ and to encourage Believers to grow in their faith. WHY MARRIAGE? Group Discussions – God’s Purpose for Marriage -For College Age and 20 Something Single and Married Adults -Multi-Week Meetings or Weekend Retreat We hope to encourage participants to grow in their relationship with God in order to discover their purpose on this Earth and filter their decision of whom to marry based upon how well a marriage with any given person can help them accomplish that purpose. For married couples, the goal is for them to: 1)grow in their relationship with God 2)discover their purpose for living 3)open themselves up to having their mate help them become the person God wants them to become 4)help each other accomplish each of their God-given purposes.

CHRISTIAN MERCHANDISE We intend to develop a line of merchandise that is similar to the WWJD merchandise.That merchandise promoted WHAT would Jesus Do. Our merchandise will encourage people to understand HOW to do what Jesus would do, which for Christians is by the power of the Holy Spirit and not our own strength. Whether it is how someone spends their eternity with God once they die, or Whether they live a life that honors God, once they accept Jesus as their Lord and savior. The person you need MOST in your life is: JUST JESUS
Young Believer Bible Study Curriculum The structure of these studies is as follows: 1.For each section of a study there are questions that the students are to answer before coming to the study. (a little homework) 2.2. The students bring their answers to the questions to the study 3.3. At the study we read Scripture that addresses God’s answer to these questions which they have already answered. 4.4. For each question, we then discuss what we think God means by the Scripture and how we would apply it to our lives.

CHRISTIAN Fiction & Movies Each concept will be a book and movie Hate Evil – encourages people to understand: 1) what is evil, 2) why it’s in people’s best interest to hate it, and 3) how that can be accomplished Needing The Least – demonstrate how the definition of wealth is not having the most, but needing the least.

CHRISTIAN Fiction & Movies Each concept will be a book and movie WHY Marriage?– the message of this would be to encourage people to understand how the purpose of marriage is not just: legal sex or to pass on your name by having children.

FOUR Seasons – this would be a story about a young man who had a self-imposed rule that he would not propose marriage to anyone until he had known them for all of the four seasons or twelve months.
