ENCOUNTER
What We Do

SpIRITUAL DIRECTION

The road of life can become a blur.  Who has time to see beyond present struggles, obstacles, to the hope and life that God intended in his Son (Isa 61). We walk closely and provide spiritual direction with individuals, couples, pastors, and college students who want that life. We believe that God meets us in the midst of our troubles.  We believe that he comforts, heals, and empowers as we face the reality of who he is and who we are in him. Email Chris Roe if you want more information, or just need a listening ear.

ENCOUNTER HUMANITY

Empowering indigenous leaders and villages to care for orphans and abandoned children. Over 2000 children come to 3 feeding sites each week to receive what may be their only hot meal. Children also receive blankets, school uniforms, school fees, and basic care. Caring individuals and small businesses can help us fund this by becoming monthly partners. Email Roger Patterson if you would like to help.

College missions

Through a partnership with The Campus House we began reaching out to college students (near the campus of UAB).  Teaching the Freedom and Life available in Christ every week and walking closely with students to know Him more intimately. Starting the Fall Semester of 2015 Johnny Lieske joined our staff to be our first Full-time Director of College Missions.
