What is an Encounter
WHAT IS AN ENCOUNTER
If you wish to know, you’ve got to live it! But while you get to one of our Encounters, we will try to answer some of the most common questions we get. We believe that the first step towards living a successful life in each area of your life, fulfilling your purpose here on Earth and where you can experience the abundant blessings that God has prepared for you, is that you find freedom and healing from your past. Jesus said:
“The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” (John 10:10 NLT)
A retreat ENCOUNTER WITH GOD, is a time with God of two days where you will find healing and freedom from the habits that destroy, spiritual bindings, wounds, resentments and mistakes from the past. At the encounter, God will make you free through the power of the cross, His Word and His Holy Spirit.
Who will be there
WHO WILL BE THERE
At your encounter, you will be surrounded by people that, like you, are looking for a better life by the hand of God. During the retreat you will be completely disconnected from your daily life and routine in order for you to focus solely on what God has prepared for you.
Our encounters are held separately men from women, by age and also by the amount of years you’ve been married. We do this in order to better satisfy the needs you have according to the stage of life you are currently living. The capacity of each retreat is approximately from 30 to 45 people.
