Encounter 2022

What is Encounter?

Encounter is a dynamic high school youth event held every fall in November. Our goal at Kingswood is to help you prepare for what matters most, and this high-energy, impactful weekend is designed to do just that! It is filled with activities and events that will introduce you to the Kingswood community, engage you in worship through music and the Word, and challenge you to explore the call God has placed on your life.

Our speaker this year is Rev. Parker Davis!
Parker is the youth pastor at Framework Church in Presque Isle, Maine, and co-directs Riverside Wesleyan Camp. He is married to Julia and loves all things outdoors including skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and camping.
Parker has a deep hunger to see students become awakened to the presence and power of Jesus.

We are pleased to be able to provide limited on-campus accommodations to groups. We will also be resourcing additional off-site accommodation options to assist with making this event as affordable as possible. Information will be updated here as it becomes available.
