Students Who Make a Difference

Encounter Student Ministry Exists to give every Johnston County 6th-12th grader opportunities to encounter Jesus.

We believe the difference we make tomorrow as a church depends on the difference we make in the lives of the next generation today. Our goal at Encounter is to give students a place they can call home where they develop authentic, life-giving relationships that help them become the difference-makers they were made to be.

We will be fully back in session August 10th.

What to Expect

Encounter happens each week from 6:00pm- 7:45pm. Every week we hang out, have fun, and talk about Jesus together. Hang out time starts at 6:00pm and our group gathering begins at 6:45pm.

Big E

On the first Wednesday of every month, we have a large group gathering that includes games, music, and a message from one of our Encounter communicators or one of our pastors.

Little E

On every Wednesday other than the first Wednesday of the month, our students connect in guys’ and girls’ small groups to develop life-giving relationships with each other and their small group leaders as they talk about life, Jesus, and how the Bible applies to their lives.
