PASTORS BRENT AND JEN

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.
