I found Jesus when I was 21 years old at a TEC retreat. I volunteered on NET ministries between 1988-1989. After NET I attended the Franciscan University of Steubenville and graduated with a Masters in Christian counseling.
After graduating I chose to move to Boston Mass largely because of a man I was dating. From 1991 until 2020 I did not have fellowship in the Holy Spirit. I continued to go to church, but I did not have a group of believers to pray in the spirit or worship in the spirit. I longed for this fellowship but could not find one. I joined various prayer groups and Bible studies but none of them filled me completely. I missed my brothers and sisters in whom I could have the fellowship of worship in the Holy Spirit.
In the fall of 2019 I was blessed to attend an Unbound weekend retreat. At lunch someone mentioned Encounter ministry. Latter I looked it up online. I was excited and sad at the same time knowing that I could not attend their ministry program.
In March 2020 Covid ravaged our nation. In the summer of 2020 I received an email about Encounter ministry offering an online program. Through the grace of the Holy Spirit I was able to register and that was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time.
Through encounter ministries I have found my home again. I have found that I’m not alone. I have found other brothers and sisters who want to worship in the spirit, believe in the healings of the spirit, and who are excited to know and love and spread the message of Christ joy and healing.
I cannot tell you how grateful I am for this program. I cannot put into words the joy, the gratitude and excitement I now have because of Encounter ministry.
Encounter ministries has given me my life back. Encounter ministries has brought me back home to the life in the spirit and the potential of my own healing and the healing of others.
Thank you is limited in expressing my gratitude. The best I can do is to pay it forward to those in my life, and to invest my knowledge in a ministry so that others may receive the fruit of love motivation and energy, just as I have.
In Christ peace and blessings!
