November 17, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - November 19, 2017 @ 3:00 pm


From the beginning of time God has known you, and He has placed you in the exact moment you are in for a specific plan and purpose. At Encounter 2017, you will learn more about why you were created and how God equips you to become all that He’s called you to be. This weekend will feature life-changing services, meaningful small groups, and plenty of outdoor activities. Pastors Kyle and Lisa Cooper will be leading worship along with New Song Nashville. You can also expect to hear incredible messages from Pastors Brandon Dirmann, Josh Hudson, Joel Evrist, and Mitch Rumpee. This will be a weekend you don’t want to miss!

What To Bring List: Bible/journal, sleeping bag/bed linens, pillow, bug spray, towel, toiletries, clothing for 2 days, hiking shoes, Flashlight (optional), Snack Money (optional), and a completed/signed liability release form

What Not To Bring: We recommend that you do not bring valuables to camp. Any valuables brought will be the responsibility of the student who brings them. We ask that you leave all cell phones and electronics at home as we want to spend the weekend seeking whole-heartedly after God while also connecting with those who are at the camp. Other than medication that is turned in at check-in, please do not bring any extra medication. Do not bring any weapons including pocket knives

Extra Activity Cost – Paint Ball: If students would like to participate in either paint ball or bazooka ball at the camp the cost is $5 per game.

Registration is now closed.
Retreat t-shits can be purchased at camp for $20.00 each while supplies last.
What to bring lists, drop-off and pick-up times and more will be sent to you once you have registered.
