STUDENT TESTIMONIES

Wow!

Wow!

I have prayed with people for physical healing for many years but not in the way we have been taught at Encounter. I have always believed that God still wants to heal today and prayed with faith, but never felt I "should" ask or continue to press in for more right...

Confirmation Healing

Confirmation Healing

I teach a confirmation class with 8th and 9th graders on Sunday nights. We’ve been talking about the Holy Spirit, and one night I decided to step out in faith and allow Holy Spirit to show the kids he is still at work in the church. I asked if any of them was in...

Becoming a Mature Disciple

As a student in the Encounter School of Ministry, I have seen God's hand in the healing of our culture. Our Heavenly Father is drawing us nearer through our own inner healing and restoration of our true identity as His beloved children and sharing that knowledge and...

Fully to Jesus

Fully to Jesus

So much happened to me personally in this quarter. As I learned more about intimacy with God, the Holy Spirit continued to convict me of sin, to invite me to open myself more fully to Jesus; to be transformed in every area of my life; to learn humility with joy....

Encounter on the Streets

Encounter on the Streets

I took a "step in faith" when I agreed to go to the streets of Detroit for prayer ministry. I started the day with prayer to the Holy Spirit to guide me and to give me strength and courage. I wondered who I would encounter, knowing what I do about Detroit, and if I...

Healing from Anxiety

Healing from Anxiety

During the Q2 class when we talked about a peaceful mindset, I received prayer for the healing of my anxiety and shared my testimony. My anxiety level was very high that night, enough to go sit in the back so I wasn’t distracted and it wouldn’t get worse. I received...

Loving God Back

Loving God Back

I have already known God’s love for me and been able to receive it. At one of our classes however, I realized that I would seldom tell God that I loved Him. I realized that I didn’t believe that I had much value and so I didn’t believe that He needed to hear that I...

Food for the Journey

My experience from the content that was taught in quarter 5 and 6 was amazing. It came at a perfect time, when I was overwhelmed with so many distractions in my life. Each week I could count on coming in to class and spending time with the Lord, hearing his Word,...

Renewed!

Renewed!

Attending classes at the Encounter School of Ministry has rekindled Holy Spirit boldness in my heart that had waned over the past few years. I had lost my zeal and confidence to ask those who God placed in my path who were sick, depressed, lost, or whatever, if I...

Perspective Is Everything

Perspective Is Everything

When I started the Encounter School, I thought that I was pretty far along in spiritual growth and use of the gifts of the Spirit, and by some measures I was. I prayed for others for spiritual, emotional, and physical healing, used the Unbound methods to pray for...

Intimacy with God

Intimacy with God

What a beautiful quarter! Before, God was moving in me in a slow and steady way, but through this quarter it felt like God placed me in a catapult and launched into spiritual growth! I loved how [the first class] began with talking about the core values because right...

It Came Upon a Midnight CLEAR

It Came Upon a Midnight CLEAR

40 years I have walked with Jesus. I have seen Him do marvelous things, but I was stuck in a serious struggle. I needed more, more of Him and I needed my beautiful 26 year old daughter to be healed. She was in college, dating and working a retail job until she began...
