In the Footsteps of St. Patrick

Following in the footsteps of our patron Saint Patrick, we are responding to the call of the Church in Ireland that are seeking transformation and revival from the power and love of the Holy Spirit. In August, Encounter Ministries will be leading an Encounter Conference at the Cathedral in Letterkenny, County Donegal and embarking on a pilgrimage to walk in the footsteps of the supernatural life of one of the most legendary Saints and evangelists of the world, St. Patrick. Pilgrims will explore the Slieve League Cliffs, Lough Derg, the Tomb of St. Patrick, and more. Please visit for further details.

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. ***Registration Coming Soon***
