Wooster Church Encounters SoCal

Wooster Church Encounters SoCal

Twenty-two high school students and five youth leaders from Wooster Grace Church recently participated in Encompass' Encounter SoCal event. They had a very busy week of cultural encounters and personal conversations with people of other religious backgrounds.

Encompass leader Ed Trenner said these personal conversations are especially impactful because “These experiences will provide a basis in understanding of others that will help them in future conversations.” Our heart for the Encounter trips is that the participants will develop a passion for the nations, whether that means supporting or going later on, and that they would become more aware of the needs in their own communities by seeing how so many different people are within our reach here at home.
