Serve

Encounter is a movement of imperfect people pursuing wholeness in Christ and releasing hope along the journey.

Our serving teams exist to create an atmosphere for our guests where they experience hope and encounter Jesus’ presence and love.

This means that from the moment people arrive to the moment they leave…

  • They feel our joy

  • They know that we care

  • They encounter Jesus

  • They leave filled with hope

In the orientation video, Pastor Dan outlines our vision for Encounter and how our volunteers can help us fulfill that.
