What can I expect at my Encounter?

The Encounter is designed for each person to come face to face and encounter the presence of God. The Encounter has six main things that we’re trying to accomplish. 

  1. That the person who is attending the Encounter would be completely sure of their salvation.
  2. They would experience genuine repentance.
  3. They would break bondages that bind them to their past.
  4. They receive inner healing.
  5. They receive and experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
  6. They would catch and understand the vision of our church to win souls & make disciples.

Where did we get the idea? The Bible!

The Encounter is a place where people can come face to face with the Lord for three days. It’s like the Apostle Paul when his name was Saul and he was traveling on the road to Damascus, and he saw the Lord. At that moment, he was blind. In those three days of his blindness, he was experiencing the presence of God, and then a disciple came and laid hands on him and the scales fell from his eyes and Paul knew exactly what God wanted him to do. 

That’s the kind of thing that we want for every Christian and every believer, to experience the presence of God that sets them free, but also gives them vision for their life.
