I'm new to OU. What is Encounter?
We're a three day summer retreat that exists to build a foundational community of believers by introducing incoming students to churches and ministries at the University of Oklahoma. We would love to meet you!
Is Encounter only for freshman? Can I attend Encounter as a transfer student?
Absolutely! All students that are new to OU deserve the chance to get plugged into the Christian community! We would be honored if you chose to spend your weekend with us!
How can I be involved in Encounter as an upperclassman?
We would love for y'all to join to us our staff teams! We have staff teams for counselors, prayer, ops, and media. We would also love for you to join us at our various Encounter events throughout the year!
What does the time commitment look like for staff?
Staff is expected to attend a weekly staff meeting, staff retreat, Encounter events, retreat prep days and of course the retreat July 30- August 1st!
