What Is Encounter?
Encounter is the student ministry (Grades 7-12) of HHFBC. As a ministry of HHFBC, we exist for the glory of God and the hope of all people! Specifically, we exist for the sake of students and their families. Middle School and High School provide a time of exciting opportunities and difficult challenges. We aim to assist students and parents as they navigate through these formative years together.
We desire for each student to encounter God in his Word and encounter the world with the Gospel.
KNOW... We want each of our students to know God personally through faith in Jesus Christ. We want each of our students to also know God's Word. To accomplish these goals, we prioritize teaching and discussing God's Word.
GROW... We want our students to grow as believers. We also want each of our students to grow closer to one another. To accomplish these goals, we prioritize gender-specific small groups each week in addition to annual retreats and camps.
GO... We want our students to make an impact for God around the world. We also want God to be glorified in Dayton, Ohio. To accomplish these goals, we seek to equip students to share their faith and provide opportunities for Gospel advancement.
Encounter meets every Sunday morning during the 9:00 Sunday School hour and every Wednesday night from 6:30 pm-7:45 pm. During our time together on Sunday morning, students are taught age-appropriate lessons from God's Word. These lessons are designed to challenge and equip students to know God, grow in faith, and go and share the Gospel. On Wednesday evening, students gather for fun games, a recap from Sunday's lesson, and small group discussions.
At Encounter, we seek to provide opportunities for students to flourish! Throughout the year, we have events designed to help students grow individually and corporately. Here are just a few of the awesome things happening in Encounter:
- Summer Camp
- Game Nights
- Bowling Trips
- And so much more!
