Vision, Purpose & Godly Counsel 

Vision Statement


Helping others fall totally in love with God and loving others like God intended.

based on Mark 12:30&31

where Jesus tells us to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,

and with all your mind, and with all your strength.

And than to love your neighbor as yourself.

There is no commandment greater than these.

Proverbs refers many times about how there is wisdom and safety in surrounding ourselves with a multitude of Godly counselors. (See the bottom for some of those verses.)

We know Godly counsel and accountability are vital in life. We are so grateful for the men & women God has placed in our lives who are proven Godly leaders and can be there for us when we need Godly counsel.  

Encounter has a board of directors that meet twice a year to go over everything EGP ministry. 

Encounter has a financial board that meets twice a year to go over the finances of the ministry. Encounter’s end of the year taxes are handled by a CPA who is a former IRS agent. We want to be good stewards of everything that God entrusts us with.


Where there is no counsel, the people fall;
But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

Proverbs 11:14  NKJV

Plans are established by counsel;
By wise counsel wage war.

Proverbs 20:18  NKJV

*  Without counsel, plans go awry,
But in the multitude of counselors they are established.

Proverbs 15:22  NKJV

Listen to counsel and receive instruction,
That you may be wise in your latter days.

Proverbs 19:20  NKJV

Cease listening to instruction, my son,
And you will stray from the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 19:27  NKJV
