Then you will know the truth, and the truth will SET YOU FREE.
Women: February 22-23, 2019 | Men: March 1-2, 2019
Freedom from Habits, Bondage, Bitterness, Wrong Thoughts, and Past Mistakes.
What is an "Encounter?"
We believe that the first step in becoming a disciple is to be free, indeed. Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will SET YOU FREE." (John 8:31-32, NIV). An Encounter Retreat is a weekend in freedom - freedom from habits, bondage, bitterness, wrong thoughts, and past mistakes. At the Encounter, the Lord will set you free through the power of the Cross.
Who will be there?
Each Encounter is led by Austin Powerhouse leaders and staff members. Men and women attend gender-specific Encounters. Encounter groups generally contain between 25 and 30 people.
Where is the Encounter Retreat held?
All Encounters are currently held at the San Marcos campus. At times, the church will hold them off-site.
How do I get ready to go?
You must first register at the information desk or online. We will then follow-up on your request.
What is the schedule of the Retreat?
At the Encounter, we typically begin with registration and group assignments. This is a two day event with sessions and activities throughout both days, so please make appropriate arrangements with work and your family.
