No matter where you’re at, you’ve probably discovered that at times, life is hard. Relationships break down. We lose perspective. We wonder where we fit in this world. Does God really care?  

One of the things I’m convinced of is that in spite of an unpredictable economy, changing politics, or the ups and downs of relationships, there is only one sure certainty in life. Our Creator loves us. His character never changes. God’s heart for you, your family, this community and the world is focused on inviting people into an intimate relationship with Him. 

We’re a group of people who are sojourning together as we learn more about God and discover His purposes for our lives. Most of us don’t have it all together, but we do share a common desire — to know God and to reflect His love to others. 

We're committed to a few essentials. We exist to Encounter God, Encourage each other, and Engage the world.

Come by our weekend ENCOUNTER worship services if you’re new to Ventura County or passing through. If you want to learn more about ENCOUNTER and meet some of our staff, come to Next, a one hour overview of our mission and ministries. To learn more about our  Next class, contact next@encounterlife.org or call 805-656-7766, x270.

We’re on a journey together — and this journey leads home.
