Heart Ministry

At Encounter, our entire staff is Elijah House 201 trained. Prayer Ministry is an important part of our culture, as we seek to see hearts restored and people connected with their destiny. If your desire is to be trained, we regularly facilitate Elijah House schools and make other ministry training available. If you are in need of breakthrough in your life, we would encourage you to meet with one of our prayer ministers.


Upcoming Events

Trauma Seminar

Many people experience trauma every day. A sneaky thief of life’s zest, trauma can sink into the soul and cause core wounding that is difficult to notice and describe, but which can affect a person’s life far more severely than some physical wounds. This seminar will dive into what trauma is, how it effects us physically, spiritually, and emotionally, and will teach you how to minister to those who have experienced trauma.

    The registration cost is $50.

    This Seminar is a combination of hands on demonstrations, and six DVD teachings by Sandra Sellmer-Kersten (Elijah House).

    Friday evening we will begin by exploring that there is still hope after even the most significant trauma, and looking at that many different ways trauma can be experienced. On Saturday we will continue by seeing how trauma can trap us, keeping us from our identity and destiny.

    We’ll break for lunch, and afterwards comes the best part. A teaching on how to release trauma, and a ministry time where you will be prayer over for your own trauma to be released.

    To reserve your seat, please register using the form below. You can also signup at Encounter on Sunday morning. Please register by November 15th, or we won’t be able to guarantee having a notebook for you. Notebooks will be received Friday evening before we begin the first session.

Elijah House Basic 201

In ministry, the most important language to learn is that of the heart. This fundamental training will help you understand the affect of your choices and the choices of others on your life. Learn how to identify bitter fruit, trace it to the root, and the process of healing to cut those roots.

At Encounter, our entire staff has gone through this training. Many of us will tell you that this training, and receiving Prayer Ministry by those who are 201 trained has been among the most transformative experiences of their life. If your desire is to be trained for ministry, 201 is one of the best places to start.
