First Time Guests

Welcome to Encourager

Sundays: 9:00 & 10:45AM | Wednesday Equipping Night: 7:00PM

We are an interdenominational, multi-cultural, city-wide church. Located at the demographic center of the city, our members and guests come from the far corners of the city and the surrounding communities. At Encourager, we believe you were created to make an impact and here you will become equipped to advance God’s kingdom and reach our culture, all while we grow as a family.

We invite you to swing by the Welcome Center right after service to meet some of our team and learn more about Encourager, plus we have small gift just for you. Children’s programs are offered during both services birth through 5th grade. Junior High and High School students meet during our 9:00am service. There is Spanish translation during our 10:45am service and translation head sets can be picked up at the sound booth.

No matter where you find yourself on the journey of life, you are welcome. Join us at one of our services this week.


Visit. Connect. Grow.


Encourager Kids is an amazing place for kids 3 months through 5th grade, where we learn all about God’s incredible plans for their lives.

Pastor Fernando Ruata

Our Senior Pastor Fernando Ruata's heart and desire is to build a family atmosphere and an environment where singles, married couples, children, youth and young adults all feel at home and have a place to grow. Pastor Fernando carries a strong message in his heart of being a family that is unified, empowered and raised up into the fullness and maturity of Christ. God has given him both the wisdom and the equipping needed in this hour for personal transformation as well as serving as a corporate body in our community, here at home, and around the world. He and his wife, Angie, have been on staff since 2004. Angie currently serves as part of the leadership team for the Worship Ministry, Women’s Ministry and also ministers in the Sunday morning pulpit at times.
