Senior Pastor

Dr. Duane McKinney’s unique style of preaching and teaching is thought provoking, emotion stirring and life changing.  He received a BA from Howard University and his podiatric medical degree from Temple University. He was ordained in ministry soon after graduating from podiatry school and has been focused on serving God through preaching and teaching ever since the day he accepted his call to ministry.  As the senior pastor of Encounter Life Church, his passion is to reach the lost with the truth of the Gospel and to challenge Christians to go hard for God.
