Welcome to ENCOUNTER the Gospel of Life (EGL). What is it? It isn’t your typical work service camp. We focus on “Direct-Relational” ministry, where you actually work with and get to know the people you serve. Our sites will include places like children’s camps, senior and special care settings and possibly a few legislative and advocacy sites. You will get to know the people who actually work at these sites all over Washington, DC assisting people in need. After dinner, we will have fantastic speakers along with fun, music, sharing, laughter, drama, challenging sessions, prayer and learning with new friends from all over our area and around the country. The big question is really, “So What?” Why so we do this type of thing? Is it only because we want to feel good about ourselves, or get service hours, or is it more than that? What did Jesus say about serving those in need and what does the Church teach? We try to help you understand the “WHY?” This will require more from you than you expect. It will exceed your expectations.
