Leadership Collective

Victory Family Church | June 19–21, 2024

You are leading the next generation of the Church

As a leader of youth and students, you have an opportunity to impact the next generation of the Church in our region.

That’s why we created a track specifically for leaders at Encounter Conference. Leadership Collective sessions are designed specifically for the Pastor, Youth Pastor, and Leader.

In addition to attending the main conference sessions, the Leadership Collective sessions gives the pastors and leaders an opportunity to learn about practical steps in ministry, and to connect with other leaders attending the conference.
