Life Encounters is a registered Non-Profit Organization, commissioned and dedicated to creating an enabling environment for all to encounter the Word (of God) for discovery and recovery.  “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”. John 8:32; 14:6

Our Vision

To create an enabling environment for discovery and recovery for the lost and the hurting.

“ Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them.  Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis,[a] Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed him.” (Matthew 4: 23-25 MSG)

Our Mission

To offer a place of refuge and an enabling environment for an encounter with the Word, leading to discovery and recovery through the ministry of the Word, prayer and helps.

We are committed to bringing:

  • Hope to the hopeless
  • Home to the homeless
  • Freedom to the captive
  • Healing to the sick
  • Knowledge to the those who lack

This is achieved through prevailing prayers and faith-based counseling, strongly based on the word of God and Holy Spirit inspired.

Our Values

Our Values are based on faith and discipleship of our Lord Jesus Christ and the ability we have through the ministry of the Holy Spirit (John 14:12,16-17; Acts 1:8; 10:38)
