SPONSORS (VOLUNTEERS)

There are 16 adults from the community who give their time during the season to support this ministry.  They share their talents in a variety of areas behind the scenes and are in the sponsor shirts at all services.  We welcome Karen Gallaher and Kim Stuby for the 2019 season!

2019 

Performance Schedule

From Easter Sunday through the 2nd weekend in August (excluding holiday Sundays), we will perform at various churches in the Riverbend area.  We hope you will join us! 

Encounter relies heavily on donations from businesses and individuals.  We take an average of 80 people on our yearly service and performance tour which gets quite costly.  While the students fundraise and pay for a portion, it's not usually enough to cover all the expenses. 

 

Individuals who donate will have their name listed in our season's program and receive a postcard from the group while on tour.

 

Businesses who would like to donate a minimum of $50 will have a business card advertisement for their business printed in our season's program.

PATRONS

Each year we take a 9-10 day service and performance tour.  While tour is not mandatory, it has been extremely life changing for most of the students who go. In 2019 we will visit Panama City Beach, FL

2019 will be our 47th season.  To find out more about our history and who we are, click the read more button below.
