The church is not a building you sit in, it is a movement you choose to be part of. When you join Converge, you become part of a movement of like-minded, Bible-believing churches focused on the mission of Jesus. We are spiritually dynamic, relationally devoted, missionally driven and culturally diverse.
As partners on the same mission, we’re more effective working together to reach more people with the gospel.
SUPPORT & RESOURCES
Everything you need
With Converge, you’ll get personalized coaching, practical training, relevant resources and tested strategies that work in ministry context. Rather than committing your own resources (time, money, people), we’ve developed proven systems that will help increase the long-term success of your ministry. More importantly, you'll be part of a family with other church leaders and mentors to support you, enthusiastic partners who want to see you succeed. Converge churches and pastors also have access to additional services and resources, including individualized coaching, training events, conferences and more.

JOIN A FAMILY OF CHURCHES
Partners in the movement
God designed us to live for something bigger than ourselves and our churches.
So our movement of autonomous congregations choose to work together, starting and
strengthening churches and sending missionaries. Their collaboration includes
participation in resourcing those efforts locally and globally.
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.
We ask each pastor to develop relationships with other Converge pastors and district leaders by participating in national and regional initiatives: LEAD Teams, coaching, trainings, events and conferences.
We ask each church to become a percentage giver to the following Converge ministries: first to your district, second to local church planting and third to the national movement. Supporting the district and national ministries gives your church real partnership in a dynamic worldwide movement.
Converge North Central helped me navigate tough situations that could have stalled the work, connected me with other pastors and gave me the opportunity to invest in others.
