The Encounter Movement is a network of relational churches and ministries dedicated to releasing the Kingdom of heaven on Earth. Each church/ministry is committed to seeing lives radically transformed by the amazing love of God, through preaching the gospel, making disciples, mentoring, acts of service, and demonstrating the power of God.  Our primary vision is to see personal, regional, and global expansion of God's kingdom through His manifest presence.


“I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven”

MATT. 16:18-19

Although each church and ministry is independent and autonomous, they are all connected relationally, sharing in the same vision to see the love of God released in their respective cities and regions. Below you will find a list of each church and ministry in the network.

In the summer of 2009, Zack and Rachelle Wechsler founded The Encounter Community Church in Henderson, NV (Now Encounter Church Las Vegas). This was birthed out of their burning desire to see the lost and desperate come to know the unquenchable love of God. With limited resources and incredible faith, they held their first meeting in a small coffee shop. Over the next many years they would see prostitutes, pimps, drug dealers, prodigals, and those wounded by religion get radically changed and transformed by the love of God.

The church would see exponential growth accompanied by healings, signs, wonders, miracles, and salvations. “What happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas but will shake the nations for the glory of God” became their prophetic declaration. It was at that point that Zack Wechsler began to have a vision to see many churches, connected relationally, become a part of greater movement - to see the Kingdom of Heaven manifest on earth. And so the Encounter Movement was set in motion. 

In the Spring of 2020, after 11 years of pastoring Encounter Church Las Vegas, Zack and Rachelle Wechsler answered the call of God and moved to Rochester, NY to become the senior leaders of New Hope Community Church. Shortly after their arrival in Rochester, New Hope Community Church became Encounter Church New York, and the second church in the Encounter Movement. And what had been spoken for years, “What happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas…” had became a prophetic reality!
