An Encounter with God is an experience designed to encourage students to get creative in their devotional time with God. Eight unique stations are set up for students to study Scripture and then act upon it in a creative way.

You can have students go for a set time to each station and rotate through (author recommendation), or you can set this up as a “free for all” where you have the eight stations available and students go to the stations at their own pace and preference.

We have used these at our summer camp, retreats, midweek programs, student leadership training and volunteer meetings.

With a 15 to 20 minute opening and 15 to 20 minute closing/debrief, the entire experience, beginning to end, can last 2 ½ to 3 hours. I have yet to have any student complain about the length of time or choose to be completely disengaged!

• Student workbooks
• Supply list for all of the stations

I've been fortunate to serve the first 20+ years in youth ministry! I'm in My Third Decade (check out my podcast on the DYM Podcast Network!) where I currently serve as the Student Ministry Leader at a church in Louisville, KY. Over that time I have been able to craft a plethora of experiences and resources that help students and parents in their spiritual journey, and I love that DYM has provided me the opportunity to share them with you. My wife Janelle and I have four amazing children ages 10 and under. I love the Cubs, the Colts, comic books, podcasts, and going to Disney World.

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
