Youth Encounter

Founded in the Lutheran tradition over 40 years ago, Youth Encounter continues to partner with Christian communities to strengthen their youth ministry.  At this time, Youth Encounter hosts over 30 weekend youth events at hotels nation wide, and has seven music ministry teams that travel to churches and share the good news of Jesus Christ through music and relational ministry.

Recognizing that the major investment in the faith development of youth comes from their families and congregations, Youth Encounter seeks to provide opportunities for churches to tap into and experience alongside their youth.  For more detailed information on Youth Encounter, its events, or its ministry teams, check out
