Encounter has developed partnerships with organizations whose missions and values align with our ministry. Encounter was built so churches and organizations can utilize and implement their own Encounter ministry. For more information about how you can start an Encounter ministry at your church contact Bill Rieser at bill@thehopeencounter.org

Featuring Casting Crowns, Mac Powell of Third Day, Jordan Feliz, Hollyn, Zach Williams, andd local worship bands.

Encounter has previously partnered with GLORY SCV to help spread hope and healing to the Santa Clarita Valley.  GLORY SCV has a great vision and believes that the future of this event and ones like it depends on the body of Christ and the will of God. Family events like this demonstrate the values of being a Christian and the love God has for us all of us as we unite together and share in celebrating His love. Encounter hopes to help GLORY SCV  grow into an annual event that unifies the body of Christ and glorifies our Lord. More information and tickets are available on their website at www.gloryscv.org

The Sanctuary has come along side Encounter and partnered with us to support us and grow the Encounter ministry. They have been our partner since day one, giving Encounter their full support in any area where they can help.  Not only have they allowed Encounter to utilize their facility for its services, but they have graciously provided staff, equipment, and supplies to Encounter. Encounter will always be grateful to Pastor Marty Walker and the Sanctuary staff for partnering with us for almost two years. With Encounter moving to Kentucky the ministry would have never been able to grow without the help and support of the Sanctuary Church.

The Sanctuary church offers anyone a safe place to grow. They are a church who strives to grow in our relationships with Jesus and others, and to encourage those around us to do the same. The Sanctuary shares the same core beliefs as Encounter.  If you don't already have a good Bible believing church community that you belong to, we recommend you check out The Sanctuary on Sunday mornings.

Hope of the Valley Rescue has partnered with Encounter.  They share the same core beliefs and have a similar mission to that of Encounter.

The goal of Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission is to meet the needs of the “whole” person — spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Their vision is to tangibly demonstrate God’s love to the Hungry, Homeless and Hurting of the greater Los Angeles area by offering Hope, Hot Meals, Housing, Health Services and Healing to those in need.
