High School & Middle School Students

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

Encounter is a safe place where anyone can be accepted, meet new friends and encounter Jesus. No matter who you are, what background you come from, or what you believe, you can expect to have fun, feel welcomed and be loved at Encounter for who you are.


What to Expect

Doors open at 6 PM each Sunday. From 6 PM until 7 PM, students can play games, hang out, and buy food from the snack shop. At 7 PM, we gather together for music, teaching, and small groups, which wrap up at approximately 8:15 PM.
