Encounter Weekend

Most likely you were directed here by a friend, and you may be wondering "what in the world is this guy so excited about?"  Well, take any ideas you may have about this impactful event and throw them out the window.  You can be as social or hermit-like as you wish - you will not be forced out of your comfort zone.  Don’t worry, this is not another church retreat; there will not be: a bunch of dudes holding hands singing kumbaya, sleep-deprived group-therapy, or any other such nonsense.  Life is a series of choices, and at a minimum, this is an opportunity to receive something that equips you to face life’s challenges in an environment customized for you.

The Men’s Encounter is organized by men and for men.  There is no central organization, but rather a growing network of men from all walks of life and many different regions that have experienced freedom and are now working to share it with others.

The principles and tools shared are foundational in nature, but yet can have a profound influence on those who come with a humble and open heart.  While there will be other men in attendance, Encounter is an individual and personal experience.  What takes place during the weekend is between you and God.  He has a gift uniquely for you.

Hope to see you there!

Launch Points

The Men's Encounter is being hosted by several different communities.  For your convenience, we have designated different "Launch Points."  You will choose one of these points during your registration.  This will be the place that you start your Encounter.  Once you have arrived, we will have a brief meeting, and will then depart as a group for the Encounter location.  All the men from the different Launch Points will arrive at Encounter at the same time.  You will need to arrive at your Launch Point by the time stated on your confirmation email. Arrival times for the encounter can be found on the registration page.

What to Bring

  • Sleeping bag/Bed covering & pillow
  • Comfortable shoes
  • Towels
  • Toiletries (soap, deodorant, etc.)
  • Bible (Do not pack, you will need it at pre-encounter)


There is a registration charge, but don't let that stop you; if it is a problem, scholarships are available.  You can write a check to Men's Encounter and mail it to your Launch Point, or you can pay by cash or check upon arrival.
