encounters cafe offers young adults a casual, relaxed spot to enjoy refreshment, worship, and informal conversations with GOD and each other. As part of GODencounters gatherings happening across the nation, look for an encounters cafe to open up near you giving you an opportunity to invite friends to a warm ambiance to refresh, relate, and relax.
Sheri Denny, Lane Campbell, and the team from Texas Conference did a phenominal job putting together the encounters cafe for IGNITION. encounters cafes like this one, although each with their own flare have opened alongside GODencounters gatherings. Go to the GODencounters website for more information.
Music, poetry, art, and comedy are familiar staples to the encounters cafe, offering an array of creative expressions of worship. Special thanks to Elia King and Nick Zork for leading our worship sets at IGNITION, as well as the artistry of True!mprov and Rik Swartzwelder, director of the award winning short film, The Least of These.
Volunteers are the secret ingredient to the vibe at the cafe, offering their willing service to the patrons making for a great experience for all. Everything from decor, to serving beverages, to set up/take down is done by young adults.
