12th Rock

Encounter 2023

Are you ready to have your youth Encounter God?

This event is designed to have intentional times of ministry, such as testimonies, Gospel presentation, and prayer. The activities are designed to encourage youth to interact with kids outside their group, with the intention of meeting other believers. The hope is that kids leave encouraged by the mutual experience of God and each other. For the unbeliever, the prayer is that they experience the love of Jesus and encounter him in a personal way as they interact with their friends, the speakers and volunteers.
