What is an Encounter God Retreat?
An Encounter God Retreat is a weekend set aside to meet with Jesus. At this retreat we focus on learning how to deal with the hurts, hang-ups and struggles that we all face on a daily basis.
Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, then you really are my disciples and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32 NIV).
At the Encounter God Retreat, we seek this freedom that Jesus offers.
