The Encounter Youth Program at Resurrection Life Church is a powerful ministry for Gratiot County’s High School and Middle School students. Students attending Encounter youth are encouraged to Encounter God, Follow God and Share God with others.
Students 7th-12th Grade meet Sunday night from 6:00 PM-8: 00 PM in the Encounter game room and lounge here at Resurrection Life Church for weekly youth ministry. The whole first half hour is dedicated to hangout, allowing students to have a constant outlet for positive Christian influences and opportunities to grow spiritually. At 6:30 the programmed part of the night begins led by Youth Pastor Steve Dillbeck. Students lead a large part of the evening from praise and worship to small groups and other activities.
The Encounter Youth Team supports students in their Christian walk through facilitating youth gatherings, special events, small groups and more.
Invasion Youth & Young Adults’ Conference began back in 1996 with the vision of Josh M. Barclay. It was stirred up inside of him to begin a conference that would draw young people in from all over the United States and beyond for the simple action of chasing after God with everything they had. Romans 1:16, the theme verse for Invasion, says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth . . . ,” and that is the declaration we stand on. It is four days of intense worship, connect groups and sessions, crazy games and tournaments, and much more. It is an absolutely life-changing event for all who attend.
