Our Story

How it all started...

Encounter has a rich and dynamic history.  It all started with a church called Rose Hill Church of the Nazarene formed in 1938.  After celebrating 82 years of ministry, Rose Hill heard God calling them to help minister to the area of West Little Rock in a new and dynamic way.  This new ministry would help everyone have the opportunity to experience the love of God no matter what their background was, where they lived or what their work schedule was.  They heard and responded to God's call by helping start Encounter Church.

Expanding the vision...

Encounter wants to expand beyond the traditional roles and methods of ministry to help share the love of God.  Church cannot and should not look the same for everyone but it should have the same heart and mission. Encounter Church is dedicated to continually finding new ways to help love their community and worship God in dynamic and impactful ways.

Where we are headed...

We don't know where God is taking us from this point but we know that it must be guided and powered by the Holy Spirit.  We at Encounter don't ever want to limit what God can do and where He can lead us!  We only wish to be Spirit-filled and Spirit-led.
