Leaders and Parents

We are so excited that you are helping teens reach their God-given potential! Encounter is a dynamic youth event designed to engage youth in worship, through music and the Word, and to challenge them to explore the call God has placed on their lives.

Our goal for Encounter is that students:

  • Encounter each other
  • Encounter Kingswood
  • Encounter the Lord (most importantly)

Teens will also participate in fun activities, tour Kingswood, and meet new friends. Encounter is meant to introduce students to Kingswood and the atmosphere on campus. Those attending are encouraged to immerse themselves in campus life, by staying in the residence halls and eating in the dining hall.

Kingswood University is a Wesleyan university located in Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada. It is the only Wesleyan higher-education institution in Canada.

*Remember that your teens will only be entered into the draw for a Special Prize if their registration forms arrive no later than 5pm AST, October 18th, 2019.
