Belong. Believe. Become.

Encounter Student Minsitries

Encounter Student Ministry exists to serve the students of Bishop’s University and Champlain College. As a community made up of students, young adults and local ministries and church members, we desire to share the love of Jesus Christ with those around us.

Our motto Belong. Believe and Become sums up our view of the Christian experience. We invite anyone and everyone to Belong to our community with the hopes that someday they will Believe in the Gospel to ultimately Become more like Jesus.

Together we are on a journey of faith. Regarldess of where you stand in relation to Jesus Christ and Church, there’s a place for you here!
