Encounter is just for high school students (grades 9-12). 

The Encounter Retreat is a LIFE-CHANGING WEEKEND with God.


The weekend will include teaching, worship, small groups and lots of fun.  Students will have opportunities to connect with God in creative ways and grow spiritually.  We call it Encounter because everyone can have a new encounter with God. 

We will share meals together, enjoy a bonfire, and free time to hangout with friends.  


Elevate will travel from Crossroads to stay at the Pine Springs Camp in Jennerstown, PA. This retreat will be a two night stay in dorm-like heated facilities, leaving Friday evening and returning Sunday evening for Elevate service.
