  • Sarah Gonzalez

    Youth Director

    Sarah is joining us as our youth director for [E]ncounter Youth. Sarah is in love with Jesus Christ and desires to live to make Christ known. A high school teacher by trade, she witnessed the powerful hand of God in the city of Chicago as her students, most who were gang members, received Christ as their Savior. Passionate about the Word of God, she is excited to teach the Scriptures to young people, because it is the Word of God that is alive and active, able to divide even the deepest soul wounds from the Truth of our Lord. It is her prayer that the Lord would raise up a generation of young people who are willing to lay down their lives for the service of Jesus, walking as Disciples of the Living God who has called them to be evangelists, prophets, apostles, and teachers.

Little became involved with the deaf ministry at Oak Brook Community Church, and poured himself into that church, working as unto the Lord. In 2011, Little inherited that very same deaf church and is now the Senior Pastor. He is presently in the Living Word School of Ministry where he is learning to use the gifts and talents he has used these many years in ministry to the deaf.
