> Our theme this year is "UNashamed" from Romans 1:16 - "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ..." This year, we are taking things up a notch, and we desire to make this the BEST conference that we have had so far! We will have NEW sessions, some NEW speakers, and plenty of FUN while we minister the word of God.
>> OUR GOAL this year is to create a passion within the heart of every attendee to live out authentic faith, and share Jesus with as many people as possible! We are telling them DON'T KEEP QUIET about what we believe!!!
Now you may be wondering, "What is an Encounter Conference?” Well it is unlike any traditional youth conference that you have ever been to... This is intimate. This is a chance for a youth or young adult to have a one-on-one encounter with God. It was at one of these very encounter conferences that I received my call into ministry several years ago! A true transformation takes place within the heart of each person who attends. This conference is different because it is not just an event, but it’s personal. We will be teaching several different sessions that include various topics...friends & influences, media, forgiveness, purity, relationships, identity, transformation, being a victor-not a victim, and more!
>>> Here is a VIDEO of personal Encounter testimonies from people just like you...I even give my testimony! >>>

I like to think of these Encounters as a way of cleaning out your spirit & soul. Just like gutters on a house need to be cleaned every year because dirt, leaves, and debris can clog it up – your spirit is the same way. And we have found with most youth (& young adults), they don’t keep their spirit clean, but they let it get clogged and backed up with things of the world. The significance of this is that when the gutter is clogged, it won’t work nearly as well, rendering it ineffective. This is their chance to get CLEANED OUT so they can have FREEDOM and get results from their spiritual life! This is a chance for God to minister to you, and for you to encounter your DESTINY!
During this 2-day Encounter weekend, a youth may experience many different feelings, but it all results in FREEDOM! Even if you have been to an Encounter conference before, this will be different, so don't miss out!
Take part in a life-changing experience!!
