Encounter Ministries

draws from the richness of our Catholic heritage and identity to teach, equip, activate and deploy disciples to demonstrate the supernatural power and love of the kingdom of God in their spheres of influence.

Encounter School of Ministry, Lexington Campus, will offer a Summer Intensive in Louisville at Saint Raphael the Archangel parish, the last 4 Mondays in July. The Summer Intensive is a powerful experience that helps bridge the gap between the supernatural lifestyle of Jesus and the everyday experience of many believers. Focusing on topics from the first four quarters of the Encounter School of Ministry - Identity & Transformation, Hearing God & the Prophetic Gifts, Power & Healing, and Inner Healing & Freedom - participants get a taste of the joy, transformation, and renewal that is at the heart of Encounter's mission!
