Your kids are a top priority to Encounter. We offer safe environments and engaging messages where they learn biblical principles. All of our eKidz and Encounter Student Ministries servant leaders have passed thorough background checks. On Sunday we have eKidz services geared for your children ages infant-6th grade. We have midweek small groups we call ESM Crews for all Jr High and High School students.
Brent Christensen serves as the Lead Pastor of Encounter AZ. The importance of a real encounter with God has been the voice of his ministry from the moment he stepped into his calling in 2006. He was first involved with the youth in Glendale, Arizona and Pampa, Texas before finding his place here at Encounter. He has had the opportunity to preach at different churches and youth camps around the country. Brent received his ministry education from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. He and his wife, Jennifer, have two beautiful girls, Kaitlyn and Emily.
