At NLBC, teenagers in grades 6 - 12 can find a fun and safe place where they'll encounter new friends and encounter God. That's why it's called Encounter! We have a great time connecting with God and each other through energetic worship, engaging teaching, and relevant discussions. We would love to see you at Encounter!


Encounter Student Ministries exists to see students BELONG to the family of God, BELIEVE in Jesus, and BECOME His disciples.

Meeting Times

Encounter Midweek

Wednesdays 6:30-8:30 pm

Midweek is a great place for students to first get plugged into our student ministry! At Midweek we show students that they have a place to BELONG in our family. It's only after students know that they belong that we teach them to BELIEVE in Jesus and trust Him.

Small Groups
Sundays 12:00-1:00 pm

Students are growing up in a confusing world and they need help navigating it. We believe students grow the most in circles, not in rows. That's why small groups are so important. This is where students learn how they can BECOME Jesus' disciples and change the world.
