At the park, participants walked forest trails in prayer and spent time of reflection on scripture, allowing their hearts and minds to rest in this busy season of work. Toward the end of the day the group assembled to share the thoughts and feelings experienced throughout their time and to come before God together in prayer. It was a greatly needed time for refocus of vision and peace of mind.
The bi-annual Day with God is a legacy that finds its roots in the very heart of Encompass. Encompass embraces a bold vision: to spread the knowledge and glory of God in Christ among the least reached peoples of the world through
Relentless pursuit of the Great Commission in all of its implication

As Director of Member Care Steve Bailey said, “Some jobs you can do successfully without any heart, but you can’t do this one. Even when you have a lot of work to get done, having a planned day to spend between you and God is vital for this operation.”
Across the world, our Encompass Partners and Global Workers are encouraged to participate in the Day with God, and everyone who does finds this practice refreshing for their ministry. When your work is the mission of God, it is critical to take the time to listen to His leading.
