GLOBAL

CHANGE THE WORLD

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”. Our global vision is to make Jesus known to every culture and every people. This vision is fueled by prayer for people groups, the nations, and our global partners.

  • MAKE disciples of all nations, prioritizing unreached people groups (those who have no access to the gospel).
  • SEND skilled people to plant reproducing churches, partner with nationals, equip leaders, translate Scripture, and proclaim the Gospel.
  • CARE for our Global Partners and support Global Member Care efforts.
  • MOBILIZE believers to expand their understanding God’s heart for the world.
  • ADVOCATE for the poor and oppressed by partnering with Gospel-driven compassion ministries.

REACHING THE UNREACHED

There are still large segments of the world’s population who have never heard the name of Jesus. Unreached people lack enough followers of Christ and resources to evangelize their own people. Most of these people live in hard-to-reach areas of the world that are hostile to Christians. We focus prayer and resources to support these unreached people groups:

Arab Omani – in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Bengali – in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Bouyei – in Southern China

Roma – in Bosnia-Herzegovina

Tajiks – in Tajikistan

Uyghurs – in Northwest China

In addition, through the ministry of Catalyst Int’l, we encourage international workers who serve in hard to reach places where there is little to no Christian witness.

POVERTY | JUSTICE | COMPASSION

At ENCOUNTER, we want to mobilize our community to respond to God’s call to care for the poor, defend the cause of the fatherless, and speak up for the oppressed both locally and globally.

“Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.” – Isaiah 1:17

POVERTY

We partner with global organizations like Compassion International and Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan’s Purse.

We send a team to Honduras each year to live among the poor and learn about cycle of poverty. Learn more about joining our Honduras Missions Team.

JUSTICE

We partner with AJS (Association for a More Just Society). AJS supports efforts in Honduras to promote the interests of the most poor in land and labor rights, defend the rights of the most vulnerable in judicial processes, fight government corruption, and influence country-wide policy and laws on issues affecting the poor of Honduras. If you’d like to be a part of a team who lives among the poor and learns about issues of justice in Honduras, contact Lori Hahn.

COMPASSION CHILD SPONSORSHIP

Compassion International exists as a Christian child-advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. Child sponsorship links you with one child who will know your name, write to you, and treasure the thought that you care. Your tax-deductible contribution of $38 a month provides, food and clean water, medical care, education, and life skills training. Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. To sponsor a child, visit Compassion.
