Here at ENCOUNTER, we believe Jesus meant for us to respond to His commission in Matthew 28:19 when He said "go and make disciples of all nations". Since the church began in 1953, global missions has been part of our DNA. 


Over half the world has still not heard the gospel While there are many ways to make a positive difference in the world, we've chosen to direct our resources to five areas:

1) MAKE disciples of all nations, prioritizing unreached people groups.

2) SEND skilled people to plant reproducing churches, partner with nationals, equip leaders, translate Scripture, and proclaim the Gospel.

3) CARE for our Global Partners and support Global Member Care efforts.

4) MOBILIZE believers to expand their understanding of God’s heart for the world.

5) ADVOCATE for the poor and oppressed by partnering with Gospel-driven compassion ministries.


Prayer fuels missions. Our Partners In Prayer (PIP) team receives a compiled monthly update of prayer requests from our Global Partners by email. Contact Lori Keebler to be added to our PIP email list to receive these monthly prayer updates.

We'd love to help you discover how to use your education, skills, experiences and passion to make a positive difference in the world. Contact Global Outreach Director Lori Hahn.
