About Us

Encounter Church provides a warm, loving environment were you can encounter God, discover your purpose, and experience what it means to be "In Christ" and a part of the church family. We are a new church launched out of CJ McBride Ministries looking to expand and reach the lost in our city, state, nation, and across the world. We have a worship service at 9:00am & 6:00pm every Sunday, and a bible study every Wednesday at 7:00pm. Visit our ministry page to learn more about what we do!
