Why give?

As people of God, we give because God has given so much to us. God doesn't need our money,

but He does want what it represents: our purposes, passions, and priorities.

We give to make a Kingdom impact locally in Baton Rouge, in Louisiana, across the country,

as well as globally through mission efforts. We give to increase the Kingdom

through our generosity so that others may know Jesus better!

We offer 2 convenient options to give:

  • Locally

    Encounter believes in creating opportunities to serve and bless our local Baton Rouge community. A large percentage of your financial contributions stay in the area, enabling us to do the work that God has called us to in our local community. 

    We have specific ministries we support, as well as our own initiatives that we invest your generous donations on.

  • Globally

    When Jesus commissioned his disciples before His ascension, He said, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."

    At Encounter, we take this command of making disciples in all nations very seriously, which leads us to giving part of your tithe and offerings to work God is doing globally. We support missionaries who are living out the Great Commission all over the world.
