Encounter is the hub of all youth ministries of the Atlanta Berean Church.


We are a generation of young people on fire for the Lord, making disciples of all nations through the power of the Holy Spirit for the glory of God. Matthew 28:19


We seek to make spiritual CHAMPIONS that are committed disciples of Jesus Christ through four core values and action steps:


To bring young people to Christ through intercession, praise and worship in an environment sensitive to their generation. 2 Peter 3:18

Innovative Involvement: 

To build strong ties to the body of Christ through thoughtful,  dynamic Christ-centered presentation and the development of healthy relations. Gal 6:2; John 13:34


To nurture a sense of commitment to meeting the needs of the world while revealing the love of Christ in action. Ephesians 4:16

Experience Evangelism:

To foster a desire to be a disciple through the discovery and development of spiritual gifts for the salvation of others. Matthew 28:19

“What you give today can determine what our young people give tomorrow.”

What will your child say when they leave?

“When my parents dropped me off I thought I was in for another lame AY but, when I walked in I saw young people my age praying over every seat, leading an awesome praise and worship and when one of my peers made the appeal at the end I found myself in tears at the altar. I see why it’s called ENCOUNTER… I met Jesus there.”
