About Encounter

Encounter is the high school ministry of Cornwall Church. At Encounter, we love real community and encountering Christ. We get together on Wednesday nights to hang out, worship, and learn together about what a culture, community, and Christ-filled life looks like.

Interested in being a leader?

Encounter is currently looking for individuals who have a heart for students and are interested in hanging out with high schoolers every week. If this sounds like you, please fill out a leader application and email it to paigec@cornwallchurch.com or drop it off at the Church office. Questions? Email Paige or Jeff.


When we connect with the living God, life comes to life, hope overcomes despair, we see how great God is, and we learn how much He loves us. The Connect’Lit is created to help students to connect with Him through scripture. Check back in soon for a variety of topics to follow in scripture.

If you have a heart for high schoolers and a passion for Jesus, we want you on the Encounter leader team! Are you more of a behind-the-scenes type of person?
We have places for you to volunteer, too! We’re always busy getting ready for retreats, events and weekly meetings.

If you’re interested in serving, please email Jeff, our high school ministry director. He’ll give you details about the ministry and set up a time for you to check out Encounter and see if it’s a good fit for you.
