Missions

SPREAD JESUS

Our “Go Team” exists to mobilize the members of Encounter Church around “common causes” that allow us to advance The Kingdom of God together.  Our Lord’s last words were to…

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

Locally

Our “Jerusalem”  (Natomas & Sacramento)

We are constantly looking for ways to serve our community.  Our motivation comes from the words of Jesus as he gave his “Sermon on the Mount”.  He exhorted us to…

“…let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
(Matthew 5:16)

We eagerly solicit ideas from those who call Encounter their home to help us creatively connect to those needs.  Some of the needs that the people of Encounter have identified include: care packages for the homeless, an annual Christmas dinner for the ladies at River City Recovery Home, prayer gatherings for the leaders of the schools in our community, etc.

Perhaps you have some ideas!  Join our GO TEAM to help us mobilize our people and resources that help us meet needs in our community.

Regionally

Our “Judea & Samaria”  (Northern California)

We have identified some “regional” needs that excites our hearts including going to San Francisco to minister with City Impact in the Tenderloin District.

Truthfully, we are looking to expand our regional missional thrusts.  Perhaps you have relationships or contacts that we can explore.  Let us know!
