Four different age groups and a whole lot of fun!


The heart of Encounter Student Ministries is for the young people of Chattanooga & North Georgia to experience the presence of Jesus in a way they can never forget.

Young Adults

The Cove is a place for young adults (18 to 20 somethings) in the Chattanooga/North Georgia area to come together for the Word of God and community.

Dream Central

World Missions sharing the gospel in Belize, Honduras, Ecuador, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Israel, Germany, and Thailand


Terry & Kaye Harris

Terry and Kaye have a pastor’s heart, and their vision is to reach the harvest and raise up the next generation of spiritual leaders. They presently are developing  ministry training centers in eight different nations as well as the lead Pastors of the Crossing Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Chad & Ashton Harris

Chad serves as associate pastor in which he oversees the music ministry, The Cove (young adults), the Connect Track, and Flourish. Chad’s lifelong passion is songwriting. He and his wife Ashton feel called to bridge the generational gap in ministry. Chad and Ashton’s two sidekicks are their two small children, Priscilla and Silas. As a family, they are passionate about serving the church and advancing the kingdom locally and around the world.
