Kent Shingleton – Youth Evangelism Specialist, Tennessee Baptist Convention 

“I will always remember the first RE outreach event I attended.  Never had I seen such a gathering of unchurhed people at an evangelistic event.  Words can not describe it.   I was so moved by the impact of this ministry on the community that I knew we had to partner with Real Encounter and together proclaim the gospel in Tennessee.  It’s been 2 ½ years since I first met Brad Bennett and the team and we have now worked with Real Encounter in 16 citywide outreach events across our state. 

God has truly blessed as we have literally seen thousands of people come to know Christ as Savior thru RE outreach.

When I think about the ministry of Real Encounter, I am reminded of the words of Jesus.  “When

He saw the crowds, He felt compassion for them, because they were weary and worn out, like sheep without a shepherd.  Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.  Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”  Matthew 9:36-38

If God gives the leaders of your city a vision for the harvest, I wholeheartedly recommend you call Real Encounter.  It will be a week you and your city will never forget.”
