ENCOUNTER is a movement of youth & young adults that gathers to glorify God and to put faith in the hearts of young people to build the local church and create a brighter future for South Africa.
Our annual Encounter Youth + Young Adults Conference is for all young people, grade 7-12 & ages 18-25. We believe every young person should take a stand in their high schools, universities and work places for what they believe in.
ENCOUNTER TWENTY-17: The Good News.
We’re called to live lives that boldly proclaim the Good News of Jesus wherever we find ourselves daily.
We are the GOOD NEWS people – changing atmospheres, changing our worlds.
With so much negative news going around, we’re called to change the narrative – by boldly living out he freedom we have in Jesus.
