Encounter Philadelphia 2018 BLOG


Encounter Philadelphia  provides the opportunity for you to grow personally in your faith and to develop a deeper vision for your place in an increasingly urban and global world. This summer experience will prioritize the areas of:

  • leadership development
  • city engagement
  • Bible study training
  • the global Church
  • community living

Over two months in the summer, you will work and worship in one community while being challenged to become a kingdom leader. Students will secure a part-time job or internship of their choice and live together in a large house while hearing speakers unpack the history and theology of the city. At the end of your time at Encounter Philadelphia, you will not only experience the joy of the city, you will have developed the character and skill to become an effective kingdom leader wherever you go.
