What is Encounter?
Encounter is a spiritual mission. It is
a journey for those who wish to
deepen their relationship with Christ
and seek the will of God in their
lives. It is a time to examine, to
share, to reach farther, to open up,
and to truly experience one’s
relationship with God. It’s about
fellowship with other believers. And
most of all it is about placing God
first in every aspect of our lives.
