Our churches come together around something greater than a compelling mission. What brings us together is Christ’s completed work on the cross. Because of the cross, we have forgiveness from our past, power for our present and hope for our future. As a result, we converge around the cross to take what Christ has done for us and make it known to others. Our goal is to give every person the opportunity to hear the gospel, say “yes” to Jesus, grow in faith, be equipped to serve and be sent out. We want every person to experience a life-changing, personal relationship with Jesus.

The next 10 years
Throughout our history we have seen generations of Converge churches, leaders and missionaries join forces through God’s power to accomplish the impossible. His command to go and make disciples resonates in our hearts and churches. Our national and district leadership teams have established a 10-year plan for our movement.
Our vision has 4 major parts:
Open the front door
to see more churches started, disciples multiplied and missionaries sent out
Close the back door
to develop more healthy, growing churches and leaders
Tear down the walls
to expand our cultural diversity and address racial barriers to advance the gospel
Build the house
to increase collaboration and resources needed to start and strengthen more churches
How to participate
In this next season of ministry, our prayer is that every individual would lead someone to Christ and disciple him or her: Each One Reach One, Each One Raise One. And we call every church to start a congregation and send a missionary: Each One Start One, Each One Send One.
Whether you’re a lay leader, nurse, businessman, student, pastor or missionary, you have a part to play in Converge’s 10-year vision. We ask you to commit to pray for God’s wisdom, courage and favor so that many people around the world will meet, know and follow Jesus.
We also ask that you prayerfully commit to these four challenges:
Our prayer is each person
Our prayer is each person would
We pray each church will be
We pray each congregation will
Converge Great Lakes helped us work through a variety of growth transitions and work through staff conflict, and how to create the right team. They provided coaching for church health, which resulted in greater ministry effectiveness.
