Encounter Youth is for grades
6-12.
They meet on Tuesdays at 6:30 in the leaders' home. They strive for a relational atmosphere where students feel comfortable and open to be themselves and grow in God and in their relationships with others. Leaders Walt and Kristyn Talley have 5 teens of their own (6th grade triplets, and sophomore and a senior) so teens are what they do. Co-leader Keesha Jimmison raised her son, who is now a freshman at Bowling Green State University and loves to be with the teen girls since that is something she didn't have in her parenting  journey.
