WHAT TIME DOES ENCOUNTER BEGIN?
HOW LONG IS AN ENCOUNTER SERVICE?
Usually, Encounter is 75-90 minutes. However, we unapologetically are pentecostal and strive to make room for Holy Spirit to minister freely in all our Encounter opportunities. After all, we do gather for Him!
WHAT IS THE ENCOUNTER SERVICE LIKE?
All Encounter opportunities start with prayer. Then our praise team will lead in engaging worship, with projected lyrics for you to participate however you're comfortable. After music, our lead pastor, Josh Edwards will share a relevant message that will both encourage and challenge you to be who God created you to be.
WHAT IS CULTURE LIKE?
Encounter opportunities are exciting, casual and relaxed. Come as you are!
We promise, regardless of race, gender, creed, political party preference, socio-economic status, past failures or future goals; YOU ARE WELCOME HERE!
