About Encounter Ministries

A Place to be Challenged...

Are you ready to be challenged to do the impossible with God? At ECC you’ll be challenged to grow in faith, advance in prayer, and develop a relationship with the Holy Spirit through what we call, “Radical Discipleship.”

One thing that sets ECC apart is our love for training believers to be victorious followers of Christ and effective witnesses for the Kingdom of God. ECC will help you walk in your calling and develop your gifts through a challenging, Biblical approach to discipleship. “With God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 

A Place to be changed...

Are you ready to be transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit? At ECC we believe that only an Encounter with Christ can change a person’s life. That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to creating an atmosphere consistently conducive to the presence of God. Some churches are “seeker sensitive” but we’re “Spirit sensitive.” Our vision is for you and your family to have a life changing experience every time we gather together through powerful preaching, practical teaching, and prevailing prayer. “We all are changed from glory to glory, by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Cor. 3:18

About Pastor Alan

After experiencing a radical spiritual encounter at the age of seventeen, Alan DiDio was born again; instantly transforming him from a dogmatic atheist to a passionate follower of Jesus. Taught in a Word-Based Church he learned early on how to stand in faith. Not long after giving his life to Christ, Pastor Alan went off to Bible College and continued serving with a national ministry for twelve years and working on staff for nearly seven. In that time, he gained experience in every possible area of ministry from running an international prayer center to traveling across the country spreading the Gospel.

Since then, he’s founded Encounter Christ Church in his home town and taken the Gospel to nations such as Pakistan, China, Israel, Haiti, and Guatemala. He also hosts the Encounter Underground Podcast and Encounter Today on YouTube which reaches tens of thousands of people around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Alan has two children and considers family to be the most important ministry any believer is called to.
