Mark your calendars for the 2020 Cincinnati Summer Intensive, July 27-30th @ Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. The Summer Intensive is a four-day series that provides a survey of the content offered in the first four quarters of the Encounter School of Ministry. Not only is the Summer Intensive a great review for present students wishing to go deeper, but is perfect for those desiring to attend the Cincinnati Campus during the year but are unable to do so because of distance or schedule. The Summer Intensive is also ideal for those who are discerning their enrollment in the full Encounter School of Ministry for the Fall, but would like to experience our content and culture beforehand.
