Scripture exhorts each of us to build our lives on a solid foundation, one that will not shift or crumble. That foundation is Christ. Through Encounter, you will be immersed in scripture and surrounded by Christian community, so that you may know the God of the Bible with increasing truth, passion and intimacy.
As you encounter the living God, you will be establishing a firm, immovable and unshakeable foundation, upon which you will build the rest of your life.
