An Encounter Retreat is a dramatic experience that completely changes the course of our lives. All of us have already experienced many important milestones, or encounters, in our lives: falling in love and getting married, being accepted into a university, or obtaining a job, to name a few. But of all encounters we could have, the most important one is an encounter with the living God! Matthew 16:26 says, “What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?”
An Encounter Retreat presents a series of experiences and personal teachings that result in visible, manifested change in the lives of all who participate. This retreat will offer you an environment and opportunity to discover how to enhance your relationship with God, how to have direct fellowship with Him, and how to commit to His Lordship in your life.
Being a Christian means having a real-life relationship with God that touches every area of your life. The Bible gives us many examples of people who experienced that and were radically transformed by their personal encounters with the Lord Jesus. Remember the stories of the Samaritan woman (John 4:5-29), Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10), the Gadarene demoniac (Matthew 8:28-34), and all the disciples of Christ. After these people had an encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ, they were never the same again. Consequently, we can be assured that when we, too, have an encounter with Him, we will never be the same.
Are you ready to ENCOUNTER Christ in a way you never have before?! The next ENCOUNTER Retreat takes place September 25, 2021 at NSC from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
