What is Men’s Encounter?

Encounter weekend is an opportunity to connect with other guys just like you and to spend some time in self-examination to see where you are in your walk with God. Over the weekend, we look at 14 areas of our lives to discover specifically how God wants to use us. We will experience worship, testimonies, teaching and ministry times.

What is Pre-Encounter?

At the pre-encounter session(s) you will have an opportunity to hear teachings and testimonies that will help you be more prepared to encounter Jesus Christ during the coming weekend. The pre-encounter is vital to the process. We will have pre-encounter at the church prior to leaving for the weekend.
