Chris & Alicia Summerlin - Lead Pastor

Pastor Chris & Alicia Summerlin joined Encounter in October 2022. Chris and Alicia have been married for 25 years and have three children, Michal, Emma, and Luke.


Their desire is for others to experience that freedom that is only found in the love of Christ. Their heart, vision, and motto are taken from the Lost Sheep Parable found in Luke 15:1-7, “After the One.” Through outreach and discipleship, they embraced the importance of seeing the people of God deepen their relationship with Him and one another. Their hearts are focused on: Going after the one - building loving relationships; sharing the gospel in word and deed; and inviting people into community with them.


Chris and Alicia are excited to see how God will use Encounter Church to make a lasting impact in this community and the surrounding areas.
