Encounter Youth Ministries

<p style="text-align: center;"><strong>ENCOUNTER YOUTH MINISTRIES is focused on one thing: doing everything possible to bring young people into an encounter with God.&#160; We believe that one real encounter with God can bring a lifetime of transformation.&#160; Salvation is not the end for our young people, but only the beginning.&#160; We long to see our young people be transformed by the pure presence of God so they can then carry that presence and transform the world around them.&#160; We do not operate as a passive ministry, but as an active discipleship focused not only healing and feeding the hearts of young people, but also on teaching them how to feed the hearts of those they encounter on a daily basis.</strong></p> <p><img style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src="http://files.www.livingwordshawnee.org/ministries/reach-youth/29871973_1865210203510571_1553526002873680075_o-process-s250x250.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="250" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Pastors Josh and Bailey Cotts have been pastoring the youth of Living Word Church since 2015 and have seen tremendous growth in the teens they have mentored.&#160; Through weekly services and daily interaction, they strive to make sure that each teen they encounter is pursuing God to their utmost.&#160; Weekly services start at 7 p.m. every Wednesday and last until around 8:30 p.m.&#160; Each service consists of praise and worship, fun activities, and a bible study or teaching.&#160; Josh and Bailey regularly allow guest speakers to minister to their youth as they believe in the strength that networking with other bodies of believers provides.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>If you would like to know more about ENCOUNTER YOUTH MINISTRIES, please contact Pastor Josh at (405) 274-3521 or Pastor Bailey at (405) 476-0205</strong></p>
