The trustees of HSE would like to update you on some exciting news concerning our ministry...


Holy Spirit Encounter will be holding its weekends at a beautiful event facility situated on 11.5 acres in the center of Kingston, Georgia.  This historic small town is just outside of Cartersville and easily accessible from both I-75 and State Route 20.


We are thrilled to share this tremendous answer to prayer which will allow more space and dates for weekends.  


To GOD be the glory, great things He hath done!

The "Inspirational" and "Conversion" weekends of November 2014

We were privileged to serve 34 women and 25 men at the very first weekends at the retreat center located in Kingston, Ga.  They were blessed and healed, anointed and set free, commissioned to walk in inspirational freedom  and conversion~ in their own lives and the lives of all they encounter.  We are looking forward to testimonies of their continued Holy Spirit authority and power.  Thank you, Guest

We had a glorious time Sunday night at our first Kingston Consuming Fire.  We were healed, set free, and commissioned to walk out our callings.  We all have them and He longs to see us fulfill them.  Join us New Year's Eve for the next one!

We had a sweet and powerful time of worship and fellowship at Consuming Fire!  People were healed, set free, inspired, and encouraged to follow the direction of Holy Spirit in their lives. Please join us for our  New Year's Eve fellowship and service and see what He has for you!
