Founded by Hlulani Chauke in 2015, Encounter’s passion is to spread Kingdom Values to the young generation who will be the leaders of tomorrow. We accept children as they are and present the gospel to them in a fun, easy to understand manner. We believe that children can enjoy a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ which leads to a changed life and a changed future; first for themselves and then for their communities.
Encounter is an outreach of New Creation Church, Bulawayo which is part of the DNa Family of churches but it is an interdenominational ministry that works with all churches . At present we have only one full time worker and three part time workers.
Children are among the most affected by the economic crisis that faces Zimbabwe. There are organisations that offer social and physical help but little spiritual support and guidance. It has often been reported that the crucial age for conversion is between 9 – 12 after which it becomes harder for someone to become a Christian.
Our goal as Encounter is to help children grow like Christ mentally, physically, spiritually and socially (Luke 2:52). We aim to give them hope while they are still young so that when they grow they will be the change that Zimbabwe so desperately needs. We believe that we were mandated by God to teach our children the way they should go (Deuteronomy 6:6-9, 20-25 and Proverbs 22:6) so that it may be well with them.
