The Mission

We desire to see individuals and famlies realize their God-given potential, become mature disciples of Jesus, and be equipped to share the Gospel with others in their sphere of influence.

"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." Ephesians 4:11-13 NIV

Our leaders come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. However, we share one thing in common: Purpose. We desire to see God's Kingdom expand, and we desire to be used to make a difference in His Kingdom. We trust in God to expand our leaders as His work continues.

The Dream

Christopher and Tammy Baldwin lead Encounter Church, as well as EquipWNY, Inc. Their first passion is to help people cultivate a deeper love relationship with God. Their second passion is for Christ-followers to know the gifts God has given to them and find ways to use those gifts in their everyday world. 

Our Call to Work Together

“My dream would be to look back on my city [region] and be able to say it is fundamentally different because this group of unnamed people were so committed to Jesus. They laid down their lives so profoundly that the city was never the same. Nobody remembers exactly who was in charge. No one remembers the name of anything in particular. But history will record that the city [region] was different because they were there.” Brian Sanders
