Encounter 2016

Every season of life. Every decade. Every hour. One thing is needed. A fresh encounter with Jesus! 
This year is no different. Encounter conference 2016 is a call to the hungry in the city of Columbus.
It is an invitation sent out to the remnant of our city to come together under the unity of the Holy Spirit,
to set ourselves apart for His glory in us and through us. Join us, as we set ourselves apart to Encounter our maker and be mobilized into our city for His mission. 

There will be great worship and teaching as well as a time to hit the streets in teams using all of the gifts God has given us to reach those who need to know Jesus!  Saturday afternoon we will join up in teams, pray for prophetic insight and then go out into the city sharing the good news and praying for people.
