Encounter World Religions is an educational organization whose mission is to provide educational, cultural and spiritual encounters with the world's religions. Administrative support for Encounter World Religions Centre, including tax-exempt charitable contributions, is provided by Canada East Mission and Community of Christ, which offers this support without conditions: it honours the Centre's purposes, objectives and its firm commitment to not proselytizing on behalf of any faith or world view.
JW Windland, the founder of Encounter, is a life-long student of world religions and a gifted teacher of what he has learned. JW has more than thirty-five years experience in the study, teaching and first-hand experience of world religions – he regularly attends mosques, synagogues, gurdwaras, churches and temples and has developed genuine friendships with their leaders and teachers. They welcome him and his students and readily share their centuries-old wisdom and profound spiritual experiences.
