Connect with a Ministry


Groups are where we do life together!  When we Gather together outside of a Sunday, we have the opportunity to learn and Grow together.  We use a curriculum selected from Right Now Media, a resource we make available to everyone that calls Encounter Church home.  If you are looking to belong and not just attend, a Group is how you make that happen.  

Through the summer months our Groups take on a less formal approach and just meet together for times of fellowship.

We believe in the next generation.  Our children's ministry has been designed with kids in mind. Our children's ministry is not a time to get them out of our hair so that we can do church.  Our time with kids is spent ministering and helping them grow spiritually in their relationships with Jesus.  We package everything in a way that is easy for them to grab a hold of and remember for life.

All volunteers have a current criminal record check and have been trained by our Children's Director.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to send us an email at


We count it a great privilege to come alongside one another with any prayer need.  We have regular prayer events called "Night of Prayer" that we Gather together as a Church and intercede for one another and for our community.

We also periodically join with other churches in our area for times of prayer where we focus on our community as a whole together.

Global & Local Missions

We use Gather  |  Grow  |  Go as a grid to keep us on Vision as a Church.  Go is how we walk out our call of God on our lives.  We serve our community of Vic West and Esquimalt many different ways through responding to emergency events or coming alongside community events.  We also look for creative ways to express the heart of the Father to our community through service or acts of kindness.  

Being a part of the Foursquare Gospel Church of Canada, we have a hand in missional efforts across the globe.  We focus our individual efforts in coming alongside some churches we have a relationship with in Costa Rica.  We would love to have you join us on one of our missions trips. 

We also support Emmanuel Child Care Centre in Uganda. The lives of little ones and neighbouring families are being greatly impacted by the Love of Jesus through this wonderful ministry.  

Community Youth

We love the next generation and because of that we have chosen to support a group in our area called "Community Youth". 

Community Youth exists to establish contacts with youth, to challenge them to engage in a cause, and to connect with them in mentoring relationships to inspire them to live life in all its fullness in Jesus.

Community Youth is led by our friend Jenn Labiuk under the covering of Youth for Christ Victoria.  As a Church we support Jenn financially in her role and we encourage all of you to support her as well.  If you would like to support Jenn financially click on the image on the left.


Because you are a part of the Encounter family we have some resources for you.  These resources are intended for the congregation of Encounter Church and due to limited resources or licensing we might not be able to give them out to people from other churches.

  • YouVersion Bible App

    This is a great Bible app that will give you access to multiple translations for free.  The best part is you can add us as "your church" and then our pastoral staff can add recommended reading plans and we can do them together!
