Welcome to Encounter

The Encounter With Christ in Latin America and the Caribbean Permanent Fund is a mighty vehicle for promoting the cause of Christ. The interest from the permanent fund is used each year to support programs and projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. The fund was started in 1992. Since then, Encounter has provided over $1,000,000  in project support, funding shared missions with The Methodist Church in 26 different countries.

As part of a mission partnership between the General Board of Global Ministries, the Council of Evangelical Methodist Churches in Latin America and the Caribbean (CIEMAL), and the Methodist Church of the Caribbean and the Americas (MCCA), Encounter is the central funding source through the United Methodist Church for evangelism and outreach projects developed throughout the region.
