Global Encounters has two goals:

  1. To serve in foreign countries by sharing the Gospel, teaching Biblical truth, demonstrating Christ’s love, and meeting practical needs. We do this by working with and supporting those who have a long-term investment in the country (pastors, missionaries, churches, schools, orphanages, etc.)
  2. To disciple young people by providing hands-on ministry opportunities that will be carried out under the direction of Godly, dynamic team leaders who have a heart for discipleship. The type of ministry we organize brings team members face-to-face with real needs and challenges – often changing their hearts and perspectives on life forever.

This is the short version of explaining our vision. If you want more information, please visit their website.

Global Encounters first came to Chiapas several years ago. Just last summer we were placed back in touch with them. They sent a team here in August of `09 and have several trips planned for `10 already! We are thrilled to be working with this exceptional group. It was through GE that we came to know Steven Curry and Stephen Muldrow.
