Meet Our Team!
LANCE WHORTON | SENIOR PASTOR
Laurie and I started Encompass Church in July of 2016. Laurie, Jordan and I have lived in Navarre since 2010. Over this time we have absolutely fallen in love with the people and beauty of our community. We felt God calling us to start a church which would reach the Navarre community with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Many people have asked us “why a new church in Navarre? Aren’t there too many already?” Quite honestly, we asked ourselves this question at one time. However, what we discovered, is there are a lot of people who live in Navarre who just have not been able to find a comfortable church home. Encompass is that place!
We are named Encompass because we want to create a place where people can come and grow no matter where they are in their Christian journey. Come check out one of our Bible studies or small groups which help members learn about Jesus. Our bodies are a Temple so we encourage one another in physical well being and we share the good news of Jesus through various service projects in our community and beyond.
