What is a Encounter Session?

The founder of Abundant Encounters, Joshua Marcengill, had an open-vision encounter with God when he was 27 and still an atheist. This encounter changed his life and brought him into the Kingdom of our God! We believe that encounters are so important for every Christian to experience with God and so Encounter sessions are for anyone who is struggling to experience God or just wants to have a fresh experience with God.

ENCOUNTER SESSION CLIENT-

"ENCOUNTER"

An encounter is any moment that causes you to know that God is real.

Many people have an encounter when they experience the tangible presence of the Lord in a sanctuary or in everyday life. That is an encounter.

Some people have visions, dreams, unexplainable knowings, touches, smells, and tastes that bring their whole being into this awareness that God is really real and with you.

 

If you thought about it, you might even be able to identify your own history with God with this understanding of the word Encounter. I [Josh] know that in my life, I lost my father before I was a believer. That night after he died when I was just fifteen years old, I had a half-asleep, half-awake experience where I saw my dad enter the room and sit just behind me. It was so real, so I asked questions, but instead of answering them, he kept saying this one thing. He said,

 

"Everything is going to be okay."

 

again and again, he said this. 

To this day I often hear,

 

"Everything is going to be okay."

 

repeated over me when I am feeling anxious or troubled.

There are countless other little moments that I've had like this that brought comfort and peace, even deliverance from demonic forces, that I can look back on personally, and I know that God is real.

Have you had moments like this?

Notice that as you consider this question, you might begin to experience peace, or even the presence of God. 

This is not an accident. This is because God wired you to be connected to him. He made all of those chemicals that react and create emotions that confirm his nearness. It's how He chose to make us so we could experience him.

We are here to help you experience God.

WHAT IS AN ENCOUNTER SESSION

God the Father is our healer and the keeper of our identity and destiny.

He's not holding these things from us, but He is holding them for us. Protecting these precious assets so that they do not become tarnished by the fallenness of this world. Jesus made it possible for us to have a personal relationship with God our Father so we can come boldly (as the Bible tells us) to His throne like a son and approach our Father for these needs we were created to have so that He could provide for us.

 

An encounter session is designed so that we help you first to connect with the Father through Jesus Christ. The facilitator's role is not primarily to counsel or minister to you; their first priority is to help you connect with God (i.e. encounter God). From there the facilitator serves to help you ask questions and receive answers. If there is something blocking your communication or hindering your relationship with either Jesus, Father God or the Holy Spirit, the facilitator is biblically skilled and will work to help you unblock and remove any obstacle so that your connection will be strong and sustainable. The facilitator will then (if necessary) help you biblically affirm that you are, in fact, experiencing God. Sometimes this is unnecessary because of simple contrast, but by affirming you the facilitator will help you open a tightly closed door so that you can experience the abundance of the realness of God.

The second part of an encounter session is about you learning to follow Jesus' example and act as you see your Heavenly Father acting and say what you hear your Heavenly Father saying. This is the key to knowing, understanding, and walking in your identity and destiny. The facilitator will help you identify and clarify what you are seeing and hearing so that you can go forward without reluctance or compulsion but fully convinced. This is an experience that you can take along with you and continually resource from.

Our ministry is not here to make you dependent on us but to teach you how to be aligned with God and how to find your way back when you veer off course. This often can be done with a single session.

We are a ministry, and we are happy to offer you a 100% money-back guarantee, especially because your donation is your free will offering to help us continue our mission, but mostly because we are fully convinced that this is a calling on our lives to help others experience and encounter God as we have encountered Him.
