Welcome to the Wichita Campus!
Mondays 6-9pm beginning in September 2023
Most people don’t experience supernatural moments in their everyday lives. There is a big disconnect between their own experiences and those in stories of scripture or the lives of saints. If deep down you know Jesus Christ did not die for a powerless church, then you may be looking for the more that is promised by God. The Encounter School of Ministry can radically renew your mind and transform your life.
Made for More
The Encounter School of Ministry of Wichita is for anyone who wants to receive more of the Holy Spirit for themselves and the sake of others. Jesus gave His Church a task to be His witnesses “to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Whenever Jesus gives us a task, He makes grace available to us for completing it – that is why He first promised they would “receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.” (Acts 1:8) Would like to experience the power of the Holy Spirit? Would you like to share it with the people around you? Join us as we teach, equip, and activate missionary disciples who can confidently demonstrate the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit in the middle of a hurting world hungry for God. You were made for this…made for more!
Summer Intensive: July 24 – 27, 2023
Experience the first 4 quarters in 4 days!
The Main Campus Summer Intensive provides a taste of the first 4 quarters of the Encounter School of Ministry over a fast 4-evening period. The Summer Intensive is a powerful experience that helps bridge the gap between the supernatural lifestyle of Jesus and the everyday experience of many believers. Focusing on topics from the first four quarters of Encounter School of Ministry, participants get a taste of the joy, transformation, and renewal that is at the heart of Encounter’s mission!
The Summer Intensive is ideal for someone whose schedule does not allow them to attend our school but wants a peek into it. It is also ideal for someone who would like to experience a little bit of our school before deciding to apply.
Registration Information Coming Soon.
