At NLBC, teenagers in grades 6 - 12 are welcome to be a part of our fun and engaging ministry, where they'll encounter new friends and encounter God. That's why it's called Encounter! We have a great time connecting to God and connecting to each other through energetic worship, engaging teaching, and relevant discussions. We would love to see your student at Encounter!

Midweek is a great place for students to get plugged into our group! We love when new students decide to join our group!
