About Encounter Ministries

Encountering God…

Seeds are never meant to remain as seeds; they are created to grow. Faith begins as a seed in your heart but is destined to grow. Encounters are like the water for your heart, increasing your faith and bring you closer to God. Encounter Ministries provides a safe and supporting environment where, as a congregation, you can work together with others to become closer to Christ.


Encounter Ministries prides itself on the support found within its congregation. When it becomes known that a certain brother or sister of the Lord requires support, there are always someone (usually many) who are ready to lend a hand. Whatever your background may be, student or worker, young or old, everyone is encouraged to come together at Encounter, grow their faith, and become closer to God.

We Believe That…

Senior Pastor

Experiencing God together so others can encounter God through us.

The Bible tells us that we are stronger together. God created us to connect — first with Him and then with others. At Encounter Ministries, we run weekly services with an aim of bringing the Pullman community together to share their love of Christ.
