"Encounter Atlanta is an amazing journey into other religions, ethnic groups and foods while learning about the problems facing immigrants in our country today."
"Encounter ATL is a wonderful trip to learn about many cultures with hands-on experience without the travel, time and expense. A life changing experience meeting people from all over the world who need Christ, hearing their stories, learning how to pray for them, and ways to help after leaving."
"Encompass is truly positioned to minister to the world right in their own neighborhood where people from many cultures live and work."
You will gain a new understanding of the religions of the world, and learn how to engage with others on the topic of racial reconciliation as well as with Hindus and Muslims. While your passion and knowledge to live on-mission for Jesus grows, you’ll become more solid in your own biblical worldview. Add to that opportunities to be involved in local outreach through impactful ministry on the ground. We hope you’ll consider joining us for a challenging week!
