You cannot afford to miss this year’s ENCOUNTER wknd happening April 21-22! This will be an incredible opportunity for you to step away from your weekly routine and into a time of focused discipleship through small group and large group sessions and serving in ministry with other students in our community.

This weekend is a kingdom effort by Grace and Highland in Tullahoma and Trinity in Manchester!

The theme for ENCOUNTER wknd this year is upstream. The world culture is a strong river raging against God’s way and toward a great fall. It would be easy for us to simply float along, but God calls His people to go against the flow, choosing Christ-centered living in a self-centered world.

The cost is only $10 and includes a student book, meals, fun & games, and a T-shirt!

We are so excited about what God is going to do in and through your life at this year’s ENCOUNTER wknd!

Speakers: Tim Forsythe, Matt Koehler, and Jacob Haywood // Worship: Channing Gillespie // This is one of the most important discipleship events we do each year. Our ENCOUNTER wknd is modeled after DiscipleNow weekend retreats // This will be an incredibly impactful and fun weekend that students will look forward to each year // You MUST attend and bring ALL your friends!!!
