Encounter Camp 2021


Encounter God / Encounter Others / Encounter Change. 
Encounter Teen Camps exists to support local churches in their effort to reach lost students in their community and to raise up a generation of teenagers who have an authentic walk with God and who actively share their faith.  Throughout the week of camp, there is a high priority on Scripture, relevant worship, relationships within the local church, and providing opportunities for students and sponsors to sharpen their skills and prepare to consistently serve God after camp.

Encounter Camps are supported by Oklahoma Free Will Baptist gifts through the Cooperative Program. Thank you to Oklahoma Free Will Baptist churches for challenging students to know Christ by giving to the Cooperative Program.  For more about Coop please visit www.okfwb.org.

Encounter Camps are at Talihina, OK at the Kiamichi Baptist Assembly campground.  It is for students grades 6th through 12th (grade just completed).  Search below for more information.

Speaker: Ryan Young


Ryan has served in student ministry for 20 years and will always have a passion for younger generations to live their lives to positively impact The Kingdom.

Ryan has a deep love for missions. Missions isn’t just an international concept. Where there are people, there are mission opportunities. He has led mission teams locally, nationally and internationally. It is his heart to present the Gospel to anyone and everyone, no matter what nation they belong to.

Ryan also desperately wants the church to experience true revival that could lead to a spiritual awakening that this nation needs. Ryan is a dynamic communicator of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
