Wave students is a group of students grades 6-12th that meet to live out LIFE. LOVE. and PURPOSE through building relationship and community with their fellow students, growing in their relationship with God, and learning and living out their purpose through service. The Wave is led by their fearless leaders, Bob and Christi Hamby.

We meet corporately at Encounter Church on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:45pm. You can expect exciting games, opportunities to meet and connect with new friends, dynamic worship, challenging messages, and small group experiences. 


Tribe means community, but not just community.. community with purpose. In Wave Youth each student is placed in a group that we call "TRIBES." These Tribes allow students to get to know each other on a more personal basis, to find accountably in one another, and to have better opportunity to build relationships. It can be hard to be known by everyone, but you can be known by your Tribe. 

Tribe nights take place during our small group semesters. We meet at our Youth Pastors, Robert and Christi Hamby's home for a more personal atmosphere where discipleship goes to the next level. Here friendships are formed and relationships are built. He have dinner together, play games, have Bible study, and break out into small group sessions.
