05/08/2020 – The board and senior leadership of Encounter Church and The Daniel Academy of Concord is aware of allegations that were brought forward concerning Pastor Brian Mahiques. We are waiting for the due process of law to unfold.
Meanwhile, we pray for truth, light, and grace to abound, inviting the Spirit of God to lead us in these moments. Just as our church supports fellow members in good times, we also stand beside them offering prayer and strength in difficult times.
We are supporting Pastor Sarah and the family in all ways possible and ask that people be respectful and mindful of the family as they are going through this. We are grateful for the loving response of the community.
Our Lord Jesus Christ brings redemption out of the most troubling and tragic circumstances. As we seek what abundant life looks like in these times we will be partaking in communion daily and invite you to do the same.
