ENCOUNTER Student Conference is not your typical weekend conference experience. It’s a life-giving, transformative encounter with God and others. Students and leaders will come face to face with God in His Word in community and will be transformed by its power. 

Over the course of the conference, you will study together through the 40 Minute study, Spiritual Warfare: Overcoming the Enemy. Whether you realize it or not, you live amid spiritual battle. God’s enemy, Satan, is deceptive, destructive and determined to keep you from effectively serving God. To defend yourself against his attacks, you need to know how he operates and what victory could be yours in Jesus Christ.   

This weekend your time will be spent in Scriptures to gain a thorough knowledge of Satan’s tactics and schemes. As you discover the truth about him—including the limits of his power—you will be equipped to stand firm against his attacks and encouraged by the truth that Jesus has ultimate authority and has overcome the enemy. You will be challenged by biblical teaching, introduced to (or strengthened in) inductive Bible study in small groups, and encouraged to grow in your understanding of God and how His Word transforms hearts and lives.

This conference is designed for students ages 12-18 (6th-12th grades) and adult leaders. Students must be 12 years old by the date of the conference. Adult leaders include pastors, youth volunteers, small group leaders, parents, or family friends. They’re responsible for the students they bring to the event. We’re planning a group ratio of 3-6 students per leader to enhance participation.

We realize that some students who want to come will not have a group to attend with them. But Good news!—They can still attend! Individuals will be placed in existing small groups led by our Transform volunteers so they will have the same experience as others.

We believe that by gearing the conference toward small groups we will better equip adult leaders to disciple their students. Leaders will receive the 40-Minute study and an optional training video PRIOR to the event. In addition to this, leaders will be provided with training DURING registration and will get to see the first lesson modeled by an experienced trainer during the first small group discussion time. This training will equip leaders to lead their students through the next three lessons planned for the weekend.
