Encounter Student Ministries

Mid High 6:15-7:3o PM
Senior High 8:00-9:30 PM
(on summer break)

At New Hope Student Life, we’re all about three words: Go, Grow, and Give. The lost are found. The found are growing, and the growing are impacting the world. That is what we’re all about, and we have an absolute blast getting it done! Come hang out on Wednesday nights. We know you have a lot of stuff fighting for your time, but we firmly believe that making Encounter a priority will have an incredible impact on your life!


Servant Leaders (students) – We believe Philippians 2:1-4 speaks to the reality of what we are called to be as followers of Christ. There are many areas where students can lead: Music ministry, Children’s ministry, and reaching out in service around the community are just a few ways. Sponsors (Adult)- These men and women are an important part of our team! The purpose is to serve the youth in a variety of ways: encouragement, accountability, small groups, activities, worship, driving, and actively praying for the teens and the ministry. If you want to be a part of this team, helping a generation follow hard after God, contact Pastor Shaun.


Aside from our Wednesday night ministries, we have TON of cool stuff going on at Encounter: Summer District Youth Camps in July, Chariot Races, Sledding days, Random nights, Bowling, Concerts, Canoeing, and Picnics are just a few activities throughout the course of the year! Be sure to check out our facebook page !
