Encounter Conference is an annual youth & youth leader conference designed for Christian believers to have an encounter and experience with God. Students and leaders will experience the love of God pour out over them throughout the conference as they partake in activities, teaching breakouts, and morning, afternoon, and evening sessions. Our goal is to inspire students and leaders to take next steps in their walk with God in all areas of their life.

As Encounter Conference is for both youth students & leaders, it is split into two tracks: The student experience and the leadership collective.

Student Experience

Our student experience at Encounter Conference includes breakout sessions, table talks, main sessions, food, and a whole lot of fun!

Main Sessions

Encounter Conference Main sessions are powerful worship experiences where students will experience live worship, practical table talks, and a dynamic message from one of our conference communicators

Student Breakouts

Student Breakouts are 60-minute practical teachings designed specifically for the student! Content is tailored to both Middle School and High School to speak to the season of life they’re in. In addition to attending the main conference sessions, the student breakout sessions give the students an opportunity to navigate significant things they’ll encounter in life. This is the practical application to hot topics, and an opportunity to connect with students in the same season of life at the conference.
