Our greatest privilege is joining Jesus in what he is building: his church. When we reach across the street and around the world with the gospel—locally and globally—we impact lives for eternity.

After 25 years living among unreached peoples, God has taught us much about bridging cultures, living lives of philoxenia — the Greek word for hospitality that literally means "love of the foreigner" — and sharing the gospel with resistant peoples. God has prepared us for this moment and we want to make ourselves available to our Converge family of churches, in particular, those who God is calling into direct ministry to the world next door. This will be done through a "city strategy" where transformational leaders — both diaspora champions and practitioners — from within the church are identified and trained; where coalitions of churches are formed (we are better together); and where apostolic teams are formed and sent out, imbedding themselves into these communities where Jesus is neither named nor known. The aim is to foster multiplying gospel movements that begin in the adopted homeland but eventually impact their lands of origin. We start local to go global.
North America // Help us resource churches that wish to be on the front lines of apostolic ministry to the unreached nations who God has sovereignly led to our very cities and neighborhoods. Please help us help the church disciple "the nations next door."
