ENCOUNTER Student Conference 2017


Register Now

ENCOUNTER Student Conference is not just an experience, but rather an encounter for students and leaders to come face to face with God in His Word and to do so in community with others. Over the course of the weekend, students and leaders will walk together through the 40 Minute study, Being a Disciple: Counting the Real Cost to discover what it means to be a true follower of Jesus Christ. Students will be challenged by biblical teaching, introduced to (or strengthened in) the inductive study method in small group settings, and encouraged to grow in their understanding of God and how His Word can transform hearts and lives.  The study topics for this year’s conference include: examining what it means to be a true disciple as we look at the call, the cost, the commitment of being a disciple. 

This conference is designed for students in 7th-12th grade (ages 12-18) and adult leaders.  An adult leader might be a pastor, youth volunteer, parent, family friend, etc.  This leader will be responsible for the students he or she brings to the event. The group ratio requirement is 3-6 students per 1 leader.


We do understand that some students may not have a group to come with but would love this opportunity to study the Word amongst fellow believers. Good news- individuals can still attend! Individual students will be placed in small groups that consist of other students and a staff member that they will study through scripture with once they arrive so these students will get the same experience as those who come with a group.


We believe that by gearing the conference toward small groups, leaders will be better equipped to disciple their students.  Leaders will receive the 40-Minute study and an optional training video PRIOR to the event. In addition to this, adult leaders will be provided with training DURING registration once they arrive and will get to see the first lesson modeled by an experienced trainer during the first small group discussion time. This training will equip leaders to lead their students through the next three lessons during the weekend.
