Open your

4-hour program includes:

  • Outdoor team-building activities

I would highly recommend a tour of Ethnos as a stopping place for young people who are seeking to find purpose in life. Be prepared, young or older, to be stirred in your soul and to start asking real questions about your purpose on earth!!! This experience has changed me!”

Why Culture Encounter?

We all want to live a life of purpose. What greater purpose than to follow Jesus and take the life-saving message of the gospel to the ends of the earth? Undertaking this complex task will require overcoming obstacles including language, culture, and geographical barriers.

Culture Encounter is a fun filled event designed to expose students in grades 7-12 to God’s vision for all people, the incredible purpose God has for their lives, and the realities of cross-cultural missions.

Join us for this 4-hour program on our wooded campus and experience a trek to Jungle Camp, interactive activities and games, a campfire snack, and tribal village stories.

Let’s explore together the great need, the Great Commission, and God’s great plan for every life!
