Meet your director Kim Engel
Kim Engel is School Director at the Palm Beach Campus. She is a wife and homeschooling mother of three with a passion for helping the lost and disenchanted encounter the love and power of the Holy Spirit within the context of our Judeo-Christian heritage. She has a heart for the revelatory and prophetic gifts of the Spirit and brings her many years of ministry teaching and wisdom to help empower Catholics to live transformational lives rooted in Christ’s love and mercy. “My experience with Encounter has taught me the Holy Spirit is indeed alive and at work powerfully in the Catholic Church today. I look forward to seeing how the Encounter School of Ministry will transform individual lives and Catholic culture and help bring together communities in such a dynamic way that when Christ does return He will find a Church ignited and kindled with the fire of His love!”
The Encounter School of Ministry is open to Christians of all backgrounds—disciples who believe God calls them to demonstrate His supernatural love in their daily lives. Our curriculum and content is rooted in Catholic Tradition and faithful to Catholic teaching.
Meet Our Campus Leaders
Fulfilling His Promises
Fr. Daniel Daza-Jaller is the Spiritual Director for our Palm Beach Campus. He was ordained to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ for the Diocese of Palm Beach in 2018. Since July 2020, he has been serving as the Director of Vocations and Seminarians for the diocese. His greatest desire is to help each and every human being to discover their God-given vocation: to become saints! “In my short experience with Encounter Ministries, I have become enlivened with the belief that God is still fulfilling His promises (Lk. 4:18-21) through His Son, Jesus Christ, in His missionary disciples in the world today. Truly, Christ’s salvific mission in the world hasn’t ended; it is continued in the power of the Holy Spirit, through each one of us!”
Deacon Pete DelValle is a native of Brooklyn, NY. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps at the age of 19, completed four years active and four years reserve, then spent most of his career in the Dry-Cleaning business. Along with his wife Amy of 29 years, they owned and operated several locations before they arrived in Florida in 1989. They had their first child in 1993, their second child in 1997, and are expecting their first grandchild in May 2021. He first heard the call to vocation at the age of 16 but ignored the call and continued to ignore it, until, in 2008, the call became too great and He entered the Permanent Diaconate program. He attended Saint Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary, was ordained in 2013 and accepted a position as the Pastoral Associate at his Parish. He is also Associate Director for Diaconate Formation at the Diocese of Palm Beach. “I believe the Lord speaks to us dozens and dozens of times a day. We need to tune our senses to hear and truly be open to the Holy Spirit. Encounter Ministry shows us the way to do just that. Come Holy Spirit!”
Receiving His Inheritence
Summer Intensive (Dates TBD)
The Summer Intensive Conference is an evening school that provides a survey of the content offered in the first four quarters of the Encounter School of Ministry over a fast four day period. The content covered includes Identity & Transformation, Power & Healing, Hearing God & The Prophetic Gifts, Inner Healing & Freedom. Keynote Speaker: Dr. Mary Healy. ***Registration Coming Soon***
Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, O.F.M. Cap. – Preacher to the Pontifical Household – “What I have appreciated most in the Fearless documentary is that healings are not seen as a goal in themselves but as “signs” of the presence of the Kingdom and the compassion of God, just as they were in the ministry of Jesus. Actions speak louder than words, and miracles speak louder than teachings. Dr. Mary Healy’s and Ralph Martin’s commentaries provide a very sound catholic understanding of the charism of healing and if Fr. Mathias Thelen has convinced me, both in the way he performs live healing ministry and looks at us in the camera, he will certainly convince you.”
