About Our Gospel Crusades

Last year, Gospel Encounter travelled to 33 counties in Southern Illinois to share the Gospel. We went far and wide to reach the lost and saw a tremendous impact in our region.

This year we are going deeper. Instead of going to 33 counties, we will be focusing our efforts in 3-5 counties of Southern Illinois. 

We will be doing mission trip style evangelism. Instead of one day crusades, we will offer opportunities for you to join us for an entire week as we saturate the communities with God's love. 

We would love for you to join us. Sign up today with the link below!
