Encuentro Ministries is a Christian-based non-profit corporation organized in July 2005 to provide pastoral care, skills development/ training, and resources for those (pastors, clergy spouses, para-church ministry leaders, Christian business leaders, lay leaders, and other local church leaders) in ministry with Hispanics.
Care for ministry leaders is designed to offer support and rest. Skills development/training in areas of current ministry topics will challenge ministry leaders to become more effective in their current context. Resources produced by staff, as well as networking leaders to existing resources, will complement an effective leader’s ministry.
