Encounter is a place where high school students can find friends, ask real questions about real life and faith, and chase after God with their peers. We meet on Sundays at 11am in the Encounter Room for a high school worship service. It’s a casual setting full of everything from music to laughter to teaching that makes you think. We also have Life Groups that meet on Wednesday nights during the school year and are a great place to study the Bible, to bond, and to be known in our ministry. Lastly, we also love to play and have several weekend retreats, camps, and a variety of serving opportunities for you to get involved with throughout the year too. So, don’t miss out, come and join us as we make Encounter a vital part of an epic high school life experience.
LifeGroups meet weekly on Wednesday nights starting September 16 from 6:30-8:30 pm on Journey’s campus and online via Zoom.
LifeGroups are a place for students to be themselves. A place to wrestle with big questions like “who am I?” A safe place for students to discover their identity can be found in God, as a child of God. LifeGroups provides a fun, interactive environment for all students. The LifeGroup communities give students a chance to make connections with other students their age and each group is led by a faithful, caring Small Group Leader, who wants to see each student grow closer to God as they navigate the adolescent years.
