Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12:1-2

Donation & Dates 2023-24:

As you can imagine there are many costs creating Made for Encounter (MFE) such as gifts to our speakers, resources, catering etc and we want to limit the size of MFE so that we create the best discipleship environment we can.

The whole course is £180 - which can be contributed either at the start or £20 per month. Please indicate on your Application Form - if this level of donation would be an issue for you as we don't want finance to be an issue.

MFE is a 9 month training space and so unfortunately it is not possible to sign up for just individual sessions.

Recommendations

The greatest challenge the church faces today is to be authentic disciples of Jesus. ~ Dallas Willard.

“Encountering God is at the heart of being Christian. Jesus has opened the way to the Father and the Spirit pours his presence into our lives. Made for Encounter equips us to discover and receive what it means to live with a continual openness to God's presence. It's led by people who have learned to walk closely with Jesus and want to help you do the same.”

Rev Martin Hodson
General Director – Baptist Union of Scotland

“Discovering your purpose, identity and passion is so important as you move into the next chapter and next season of life. As I read the syllabus for Made for Encounter, I realised that each module would provide Transforming Encounters- Moments of Meeting- and Movements of Grace as God touches you at a very deep level and prepares you for the extraordinary life He has called you to live....Get ready as He transforms and heals you and sends you out into your communities as carriers of His presence and His healing love."

Andrea Wigglesworth
Vital Connexions

“Many Christian programmes and courses on offer today skirt round our core calling to “make disciples”. Not so with “Made for Encounter.” Niall and Pam have a passion and a track record of growing disciples who in turn make disciples, which is exactly what Scotland needs today more than ever."

Pete Anderson
Lead Pastor – City on a Hill Church, Edinburgh

“What a privilege to enthusiastically endorse Made for Encounter 2022/23. I have known Niall & Pam for many years and have seen them mature in their own discipleship and develop a powerful, Spirit-led ministry, encouraging others in their walk with God.  At Queens Park Baptist, they pioneered ‘equip’, a very successful discipleship training ministry for people of all ages which impacted many people’s lives.  I encourage you to set aside the time for Made for Encounter.  You will not regret it and may well be very changed. Catch Pam & Niall’s passion to see believers living enthusiastically for God on their front lines.”

Rev Edwin Gunn

One great gift we can give the world is to become emotionally healthy adults who love well. That takes the power of God and training to break unhealthy, destructive relational patterns from our families and cultures. And learning new skills like clean fighting (vs. dirty fighting), and speaking clearly and honestly (vs. doing “Christian nice”).

Many of us know Jesus said, “Follow me.” But what does that really mean? 
The Way of Jesus is so much more than holding certain beliefs or following a moral system. It’s a way of life based on Jesus himself. It’s a lifelong journey that leaves us transformed into people of love.
The Practicing the Way Course offers a fresh look at the Way of Jesus. Get started at practicingtheway.org/course
