ABOUT ENCOUNTER


​​
-As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.  (1 Peter 4:10)

God has a way of taking an expectation and completely blowing it out of the water.

We love it when He does that!

When the three of us met in college w e were in our own places spiritually, with our own ideas of what our undergrad experience would hold.  It never crossed our minds what God was about to do.


It all started with the music!


Music was the beginning of what brought us together. From Gospel Choir to college vernacular ensembles, we found ourselves continually singing with each other. In between shows and rehearsals, we gradually began building relationships with one another.

God took a mustard seed friendship and transformed it into a family, just exactly at the moment that we needed it.  He poured out His goodness on us, healing hurts and establishing a sense of family that none of us had experienced before. We grew together - personally, spiritually, and musically.

As we grew, so did our level of thankfulness for the waves of blessings crashing over us. The only natural response was to find any and every way to thank Him, and for us there was no better way to show our grattitude than to give back to Him the very thing that He gave us, the very thing that drew us together - our music and our voices.

What does this look like for us today? It looks just as it did at the onset of our revelation of the universal truth that God is good. We just want to praise Him!

God stepped into our lives at the perfect time, in the perfect way. And because He revealed Himself to us so beautifully, we can't imagine life outside of His presence.

Being in His presence is our heart's desire. His presence is our passion.

So, when people ask us what the desired outcome is for ourselves and all that worship with us,  the answer is really quite simple.

We want to encounter God!
