Converge International Ministries has established the From Scattered to Gathered Initiative to reach these immigrants living in the Twin Cities with the gospel so they can share God’s love in their homelands. Initiatives are significant, cross-cultural
endeavors that target a geographic area, a people group, a religious background or a large urban center. Each initiative includes local gospel endeavors called projects that contribute to the larger gospel initiative.
We are asking God to ignite a disciple-making movement among every least-reached immigrant people group in the Twin Cities. A disciple-making movement is an indigenously led, affinity-based, rapidly expanding network of disciples who, among other things,
make more disciples. These disciple-making movements will result in kingdom communities that have gospel impact here (in their households), near (throughout their extended relational networks) and far (in their countries of origin).
We create two pathways for the local church to play a role in this Great Commission effort:
- A leadership development pathway for cross-cultural workers identified within a church and released as disciple-makers into nearly least-reached communities.
- An engagement pathway to direct participation in strategic disciple-making of least-reached immigrants. As a result, the gospel is made accessible, a movement of disciples making disciples is ignited and indigenously led and
culturally relevant kingdom communities are multiplied.
