Mission Multiplier Role


Encouragers see both the potential and beauty in those around them– better still, they take the time to articulate and celebrate it! Compassion, care,  and a deep desire for meaningful connection drive them. Encouragers are likely drawn to collaborative spaces, bringing warmth and uplifting people wherever you go.

About The Encourager

Naturally prone to notice strengths or progress, Encouragers are the perfect team member to cheer others on and acknowledge growth. An Encourager’s words can be game-changing for those around them. They notice when others are discouraged, isolated, or in need of direction and can swoop in with meaningful insight to uplift them. Encouragers’ observations, ability to remember people in their struggles, and timely solidarity is much needed! Their considerate approach makes others feel seen and valued. 

Encouragers, often sensitive to the subtle and unspoken signals around them, can also be profoundly creative in unconventional ways, utilizing outside the box thinking. Because they feel and care deeply, they also often express emotions, tell stories, and approach ideas in original ways. Encouragers’ sensitivity and compassion enable them to make powerful connections, whether that’s through conversation or creative expression. 

These joyful and intentional souls have a crucial role to play in missions! Whether it’s encouraging missionaries, remembering to connect with the persecuted church, or speaking life into new believers, there are countless ways they strengthen the body of Christ.

Encourager Subtypes

Each mission role can have diverse expressions. Encouragers can thrive both in the role of Joyful Advocate and Insightful Supporter. What they have in common is their passion for encouraging people on their journey. You love people well! 

The Joyful Advocate

The Joyful Advocate is vocal in their praise, often acknowledging someone’s contribution or strength in group settings. These exuberant champions of people are experts at honoring individuals, expressing gratitude, and making sure every member of a team feels valued. Their ability to build team spirit and celebrate diversity is unparalleled!

The Insightful Supporter

The Insightful Supporter might be more subtle in how they notice needs, strengths, and effort. A text message, note, or private word is often more suited to their style of encouragement. Their intention and insight make people feel cared for, seen, and valued. Insightful Supporters are often especially gifted at noticing when someone feels down and needs an encouraging word.

Encourager Tip

Encouragers are often deep feelers, sensitive to the emotions of those around them. Take time to process and reflect on your own emotions, as well as seek upliftment when you need it!

And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
