JIL-12 Mission:
“To produce leaders for the harvest”

JIL-12 Vision:
“To win souls and make disciples”

JIL-12 Goal:
“To make every believer a leader”

What Is JIL-12?

The JIL12 is a biblical principle of church government and ministry of believers, where groups of men, women, couples and youth are prepared for ONGOING soul-winning, discipleship, multiplication and leadership development. It is a fully developed vision and system for evangelism, discipleship, nurture and mission in fulfillment of the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ stated in Matthew 28:19-20.

The JIL12 is the application of the mentoring technique used by Jesus in training his 12 disciples. It is the application of the ministry style of Jesus to see the heart of the Father fulfilled. Jesus MENTORED only twelve men, forming their character and preparing them for future ministry.

In JIL12, cells are organized into groups of 12. This is where leaders are discipled, nurtured, trained and mentored. Each person in a group of 12 is encouraged to have their own cell where they fulfill their call as leaders - to evangelize the lost, nurture new believers and raise up leaders of their own - who in turn become part of their group of 12. And so the process is repeated. Once this multiplication according to the factor of 12 sets in, rapid growth begins to occur. The 12 grow to 144, and then to 1,728, to 20,736 and so on.

“If I trained 12 people, reproducing in them the character of Christ in me, and each of them did the same with another 12 - the continuation of this process, with every group of 12 transferring what they receive, would lead to unprecedented growth in the Church.”
Pastor Cesar Castellanos

What Is An Encounter Retreat?

The Encounter Retreat is a face to face meeting with God the Father where we discover His eternal love.  It is a face-to-face meeting with the power of the Holy Spirit to change our lives and give us new direction. During this two-day event, new believers encounter God, themselves, and others.

An Encounter Weekend is a dramatic experience that completely changes the course of our lives. All of us have already experienced many important milestones, or encounters, on our lives: falling in love and getting married being accepted into a university, obtaining a job, etc. But of all the encounters we could have, the most important one is an encounter with the living God! Matthew 16:26 says, “What good will be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?”

The Bible gives us many examples of people who were radically transformed by their personal encounters with the Lord Jesus.  Remember the demoniac (Matt 8:28-34), and all the Disciples of Christ. After these people had an encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ, they were never the same again. Consequently, we can be assured that when we, too, have an encounter with Him, we will never be the same.

What Are The Basic Objectives of The Encounter Retreat?

•         To experience meeting God personally – face to face.
•         To receive healing and deliverance (body, soul, spirit, emotions, etc. . . ).
•         To have a radical change in our lives for God.

What Happens In An Encounter Retreat?

An Encounter Retreat presents a series of experiences and personal teachings that result in visible, manifested change in the lives of all who participate. It offers people an environment and opportunity that allows them to discover how to establish their relationship with God, how to have direct fellowship with Him, and how to commit to his lordship in their lives. Participants are given the opportunity to know and accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and to receive assurance of that fact. They are taught the claims of the Gospel and experience forgiveness of sin, deliverance from bondage, emotional and physical healing, and restoration of worth and value. They also learn how to walk in the blessings of a covenant relationship with God and His family.

During the Encounter weekend, three major areas are addressed:

•         The past (bondage and emotional hurt)
•         The present (practical help in dealing with current life issues)
•         The future (God’s plan and dream for your life)

Where Is It Held?
Encounters are held at a location away from the church because we believe that there is something about an unfamiliar environment that is conducive to the moving of the Spirit of God.
