Before there was a Church, there was a mission. Youth Encounter is a nonprofit Christian ministry with a vision to extend your influence to places you can’t go. At the heart of everything we do is a desire to serve through church planting, community development, healthcare, and social justice. Our passion for Jesus, grace, and bold action is why we want to utilize creative means in order to multiply God’s Kingdom.
We work with local pastors, missionaries, and evangelical groups. Youth Encounter seeks to empower local churches and other stakeholders by reaching out to poor and vulnerable communities around the world. This involves preparation for cross-cultural service and spending countless hours learning the local language.
