About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

What's our mission

We exist to lead people into a life changing experience with God empowering them to change their world.

Who we are

Here's the deal, we are a group of ordinary people radically changed by an encounter with Jesus Christ. This experience has inspired us to become an encounter of God’s love and grace to as many people as possible. 

Where we come from

Encounter was started by 7 families in 2018 and launched its first gathering on Easter day 2019. Back then, this group of families imagined a church that would not just talk about the love and grace of God but would live it out in such a way that people would experience Jesus in everything we do, and to welcome everyone regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity or gender.

Where we're headed

Encounter is committed to fostering a family built around God’s unconditional love and grace, empowering families to live the life that God provided through Jesus Christ. A life of joy, freedom, hope, and love. And as we move forward as a church family, relationship with God and each other remain at the core of who we are as followers of Christ.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, we know that you matter to God, therefore, you matter to us, so that means you’re welcome here, you belong here, you will encounter Jesus here, which will empower you to change your world. Wherever you are in your faith journey, you will always be accepted as part of the Encounter family. We’re saving a seat for you!
