We seek to gather leaders of revival in the Church to encounter God’s refreshment, encouragement and impartation of greater anointing for ministry.

Conference participants can expect an atmosphere of Spirit-filled worship in the presence of God, Holy Mass, inspiring and transforming keynote speakers, breakout sessions, Eucharistic Adoration, a healing service, fellowship and many opportunities for prayer ministry and growth in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

conference schedule

June 26-28, 2024

Schedule TBD


You’ll have opportunities to receive God’s mercy through the sacraments and spend time with the Lord in Eucharistic Adoration with Benediction. 

youth tracks

These specialized groups will be lead through powerful activations, taught how to hear God’s voice, and empowered to use the supernatural gifts they were given at Baptism. We want the youth of the church to see God’s love made manifest through signs and wonders and know they do not have a mini-Holy Spirit. God wants to love them and love through them. 


healing service

We believe that not only does Jesus still heal today, but that healing is one of the most powerful ministries of evangelization. Jesus never preached the Gospel of the kingdom of God without demonstrating the kingdom through signs, wonders, and miracles, with healing as the most frequent demonstration of God’s love.  This will include a time of worship and praise, proclamation of the Gospel and preaching, corporate prayer for healing ending with individual prayer teams for healing. Come prepared for breakthrough!

breakout sessions

There will be unique opportunities for receiving personal prayer and to offer prayer for others. Encounter prayer teams will be available for impartations for greater anointing, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, physical healing and more.

We are so thankful for those who partner with us to continue advancing this mission for the Kingdom of God. 


By becoming a monthly donor through the Encounter Ministries partner program, your generous support will help us to empower disciples to demonstrate the power and love of God.  An Encounter Partner is passionate about seeing the Church empowered to do the works of Jesus and even greater works. Our partners are committed to supporting the financial needs of Encounter Ministries with a gift of at least $10 a month to make everything we do possible. We invite you to join them.



healing testimonies

Sharing testimony is to prophesy what God is going to do again. We hope you will receive inspiration and healing from what God has done in the life of others. 


We offer countless videos of testimonies, inspirational talks, and more to equip and inspire you to live out the power of the Holy Spirit in your life.
