Student Ministries

You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. (Eccles 11:9 NIV)

Wednesdays at 7pm

Keren and Erica Emmanuel are the leaders of Encounter Student Ministries, a youth ministry of Westcoast Church in Englewood, Florida. Encounter Student Ministries is a weekly gathering for middle school and high school aged kids to come and worship God, learn the Word and fellowship with others.

Great music, teaching, discipleship and leadership are the core aspects that Encounter Student Ministries has based this youth group on. In addition, the Emmanuel's have incorporated four other features that have proven to be essential to the success of this youth ministry: food, fun, fellowship and faith.

Furthermore, the Emmanuel's dedication to evangelizing the city of Englewood by preaching nothing but the Word of God helps bring a real and organic approach to dealing with life's struggles. You can hear Erica lead worship and learn from Pastor Keren as he preaches every Wednesday night at 7 pm.
