Online and Onsite Summary

Summer Intensive provides a survey of the content offered in the first year of the Encounter School of Ministry over four fast evenings (6-9pm) of teaching and ministry. Though many students who attend the Intensive go on to enroll for school in the Fall, we’ve designed this experience for anyone looking to experience powerful transformation but are unable to apply for Ministry School due distance or schedule. It is also ideal for those considering their enrollment in the school of ministry but looking for greater discernment. Available this year is a live streaming option.


YES, IT IS. This event is still happening, and we will be abiding by all state and diocesan requirements. Any registrant who is not able to attend in person due to COVID-19 restrictions has the option of changing to our online ticket to livestream all conference talks along with dynamic Zoom room participation for activations. It is recommended that any participant in a vulnerable population or who has consistent contact with vulnerable populations strongly consider changing to our online option. Any participant that is experiencing symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, or fever is also asked not to attend in person. To change to our online ticket, please email our Director of Events, Sean Breeden at sean@encounterministries.us.


While we cannot prevent every risk, we take the well-being of our participants with the utmost level of seriousness. As such, the maximum attendance for this event will be capped at 25% of fire code capacity for the room. Chairs will be properly socially distanced. We ask that any line formed for registration or for entry into our conference space also respect the 6-foot social distancing guidelines. Hand sanitizer stations will also be provided. For anyone who forgets to bring a mask, a mask will be provided for you upon entry. During our main sessions, the wearing of masks will be strongly recommended. However, we would ask that all participants wear masks if they choose to come forward for prayer ministry or interact with other participants. We will have prayer ministry with some modifications, however all participants are free to decline participation in any prayer ministry or activation with which they are not comfortable.



Summer Intensive at Main Campus is a powerful experience that helps bridge the gap between the supernatural lifestyle of Jesus and the everyday experience of many believers. Focusing on topics from the first four quarters of Encounter School of Ministry, participants get a taste of the joy, transformation, and renewal that is at the heart of Encounter’s mission! For those who can physically attend, we believe that the Onsite Intensive is the optimal experience to receive the most transformation during these fast-four days. However, all students, whether onsite or online can expect:

  • powerful prophetic worship
  • teaching focused on renewal of the mind
  • practical ministry tools to advance the kingdom
  • new connections with other passionate disciples to encourage and build you up
  • prayer ministry opportunities
  • refreshment and renewal of your call to mission

*Onsite participants, due to the ongoing Covid19 situation, we will be capping registration at 150 participants. Once we hit our cap, we will only allow online registrants. Any onsite registrant who can not make it onsite for any reason, please email sean@encounterministries.us so we can adjust our numbers and make sure you receive online access.

Please note that all onsite participants will receive an email update with additional information, including policies regarding social distancing, masks, and ministry protocols the week before the event.


For those who can’t join us onsite this summer, Encounter Ministries is excited to offer Summer Intensive Online. Our livestream of the Main Campus onsite Intensive will not only equip you with new ministry tools, but using videoconferencing technology, online participants will get activated through interactive sessions with other online participants!
From July 20-23rd, from 5-9 p.m. EST, registered participants will receive access to live worship, daily teaching sessions, and Encounter led online Zoom meetings where you’ll get to engage in small groups, partner sharing, and prayer exercises!


  • Since students at the Summer Intensive are expected to participate in a videoconferencing call, each student must register for a ticket – no group sharing, please
  • Each student needs to have a computer with access to the internet with speeds that are capable of streaming high definition video.
  • A minimum of 2-4 Mbps or higher internet speed is strongly suggested.
  • Your device needs to have a functioning webcam that is capable of clearly broadcasting your video and audio.
  • Most of your experience will happen through zoom video conferencing which will be available to you for free.

You will receive information with additional details the week before the event.

*Ticket price is for the live broadcast and videoconferencing calls from July 20-23rd. No additional recordings or later playback will be available with ticket price. See schedule below.

This class is an overview of the first quarter of the school.  All fruitful ministry flows not from greater performance or striving but from our identity as beloved sons and daughters of God.  The transformation that we need to undergo comes from the “renewal of your mind” (cf Rom 12:2) and thinking from the mind of Christ.

This class provides a survey for the third quarter on hearing God’s voice and the prophetic gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Our goal is to grow in our relationship with God and strive to become more aware of the way he speaks to us for our own sake.  From that foundation, we are able to move in the prophetic gifts of the Holy Spirit which God enables us to hear His voice in different ways for the world around us.

This second class surveys the second quarter on power and healing.  Jesus never proclaimed the Gospel without demonstrating it in power and love.  Jesus’ healing ministry is at the heart of His Gospel of power and he expects his disciples to minister his healing on the earth (cf Mt 16:18-19).  This class provides a foundation for partnering with the Holy Spirit to bring healing to the world around us.

This quarter provides a survey of the fourth quarter on inner healing and freedom.  Jesus Christ came to set the captives free and release the prisoners.  He wants us to partner with him to bring freedom and wholeness to a broken world.  One of the most intense quarters, this class will scratch the surface in understanding how we can be more effective in healing hearts with Christ and setting those free oppressed by the enemy.
