About the Grace Encounter Workshop

The 10 day Grace Encounter workshop creates a safe environment that offers you an opportunity to take personal growth steps that you have found elusive up to this point in your life. To do that, the GE workshop environment takes you out of your normal world and into the GE training world. We require attendees to live at the workshop venue during all four Journeys, spending your days and nights with other Trainees. This completes the experience of “giving you a break” from your normal life as you are surrounded in an environment that invites new thoughts, new feelings, and new relational experiences. Individuals with a strong desire to grow and change will be prepared to benefit the most from the GE workshop.


You are a spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical, relational, and psychological human being, and we address all of these dimensions. We will honor you and we will also challenge you. We will lead you in a variety of large and small group exercises: times of sharing, teachings on tools for life, practicing those skills, and Q&A. Every Trainee is required to commit to confidentiality about what they hear from the other Trainees. Our goal is to provide you with an environment in which it is safe to share from your heart. 


Grace Encounter seeks to put into practice the biblical principle of SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE. We are not a church that continues on and incorporates new members. But, as we help you gain the benefit of receiving and giving truth spoken in love, we pray that individuals, families, churches, and relationships will be strengthened.

What will I do?

The Training Team will guide you through large group, small group, and individual exercises that help you come to grips with a new perspective on yourself. This is done in a setting of grace and unconditional acceptance, with respect for your unique identity and situation. For more information on what happens during the GE workshop, click here.


How will I do it?

The training setting is not about note-taking and study. It is not a personal counseling process guided by the topics you bring up. It is curriculum based in a controlled environment in which you take a hard look at what is working and not working in your approach to yourself, others, life, and God.

Seven follow-up meetings

Because we’re committed to making the training last, we offer a follow-up program which meets weekly for seven weeks starting after Journey Two. These include times of study and sharing. Trainees have found these very useful in growing into the truths they discover in the Journeys.


Where are you coming from?

GE is a Christian ministry that helps you make biblical principles real for your life. However, both Christians and non-Christians are welcome and benefit from GE. We will be open about our spiritual convictions, and will respect yours, whatever they are.

Who’s in charge?

GE sessions are led by a Training Team of men and women who have themselves experienced great life change through the workshop. Each one has received training to provide leadership that is both personal and professional.


Who may attend Grace Encounter?

GE is open to attendance by anyone who is 20 years or older.


GE Winter Journeys are held at Harmony Hill Camp in Fulton, MO. GE Summer Journeys are held at Central Christian College of the Bible in Moberly, MO.  On rare occasions the location for one of the Journeys may have to be changed. Changes will be communicated to registered trainees. Dress casually and comfortably for all sessions.

GE gave me tools to deal with the shame and anger I’d carried for years. I have more confidence since I’ve been set free of the snares of some of my life choices.
