Mission Statement

To win the lost souls and making disciples of all nations preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and building the Kingdom of God


To equip and develop all Gods children not by might nor by power, but by the spirit of God, to a purpose driven life. A life of freedom through the blood of Jesus Christ

Our Values

Holy Spirit

The presence and anointing of the Holy Spirit is a non-negotiable at Encounter Ministries. We are totally submitted to the Holy Spirit and what He wants us to do. We are open to receive our wisdom and our strategy from God.


We are totally committed towards the vision and strategy that God has entrusted to us in order to make every believer a leader of leaders. Matt 18:19-20

Active Diciples

We trust God for members to become active disciples that will be developed in the ministry and to be partakers in the vision in winning souls and making disciples.


We believe that relationships are supernatural and therefore there will be supernatural unity. John 15:13

Global Relationships

We interact with believers in the Body of Christ all over the globe. And have close relationships with numerous churches including Pastors Francois and Adri Burger from His Vision in Rustenburg.

Sowing & Reaping

We truly believe in the Kingdom Principle of sowing and reaping by giving our First Fruits, Tithes and Offerings. Mal 3:10

Financial Offerings

Every believer part of Encounter Ministries has a responsibility and the privilege to honour God with their finances in giving tithes and offerings so that their spiritual house, Encounter Ministries can answer to the call of God on earth. Prov 3:9-10


Discipleship is not only a Bible course but a divine relationship in which we lay down our lives to one another and model it to others in order to do the same.
