International Ministries

Converge’s International Ministries team works to help your church develop effective missions strategies and opportunities to reach people with the gospel in key areas of the world. We are passionate about helping your church’s missions ministry become more effective and make a greater kingdom impact worldwide as your people develop a heart for missions.

Our team also works closely with over 170 strategically-placed missionaries in countries around the world as they lead the lost to Christ by starting church planting movements and developing national leaders, as well as many more who are currently going through our highly-respected missionary assessment and deployment process.
