About ENCOUNTER ( CCR Youth Ministry )

Encounter Youth is designed to help preteens and teenagers grow in their faith, character and knowledge of God. We want all teens to encounter God, have a personal faith and develop a relationship with Christ. Encounter is exciting, fun and a safe place where teens can feel like they belong. 


Youth are invited to be involved in all aspects of church life. They also have an opportunity to do their own Encounter activities and events guided by our Encounter leaders.


Beat Nights (youth hangouts) are designed to help youth find the right rhythm in their walk with Christ and live the life God intended for them. We gather once a month to challenge our faith and encourage each other to live the life that God intended for us.


Reach Outs provide an opportunity for CCR Youth to go into their community to serve and make a difference. Our strategy is to gather teens, grow their faith and encourage them to invite their friends to know God. We want to inspire our teens to live a life with a purpose higher than themselves. Reach Out is one way we encourage them to live out their faith. 


These reach outs activities have included visiting hospitals, widows and orphans, and painting houses. This gives our youth the opportunity to serve others, provide fellowship and share the love of God.
