"Engaging messages. The kids really got it and were excited that they were engaged" - Youth Leader

"We saw a student accept Christ this weekend. MBC is committed to families and individuals and helping in their walk with the Lord." - Youth Leaders


Our goal is to bring you a Christ-centered program that will help your students grow. We want to come alongside your ministry and be a catalyst for the work you’re doing day in and day out. Encounter is a great opportunity to propel your students forward in their relationships with Christ and each other. We hope you will join us this winter for a great weekend of ministry together.

Our gatherings are distinctive. Focused and engaging worship is blended with ridiculous group games and powerful, biblical speakers.

Join Thousands of teens this winter for a weekend that your students will not soon forget! With new and exciting activities such as a redesigned tubing hill, snow shoeing, and optional workshops designed to take your students deeper in their relationship with Christ.  This will be a weekend that will help your students discover who they are in their relationship with Christ and how they can live out their faith in real and meaningful ways!

Activities are highlighted by tubing, laser tag, our heated indoor pool, and a recently added lounge with snack shop called Hillside.
