The great 20th century church statesman and theologian, William Temple, said, "The Church is the only society that exists for the benefit of those who are not its members." As the Encounter church community we are committed to reaching, loving and serving our neighbors both locally and globally through strategic long-standing partnerships with like-minded organizations.  We cannot speak highly enough of what they have accomplished and continue to do in their respective communities.  It is an honor and privilege to lock arms with them in the Kingdom mission.
