about us

The name “Encounter” was chosen because we believe that an encounter with Jesus Christ changes everything. Without an encounter with Jesus, church is just “religious practice” without any life.

We want to do everything possible to create opportunities for people to genuinely and personally encounter the living Christ. Once we encounter Christ, He transforms our hearts and minds and desires.

For those of us who are already “in Christ”, our desire is to continually seek him more and more to deepen our relationship and become more and more like Him.
