Lead Team

Jesus is head of the church (Ephesians 5:23), and ultimately leads and directs our decisions and direction. The Lead Team at Encounter is the governing team that oversees the ministries of the church and prayerfully seeks God's will in every decision. Each person is nominated by partners and elected by the Lead Team to serve a three year term.
