Church starting & strengthening conference
The world isn’t what it was meant to be. Not even close. How can we look around and not feel brokenhearted? Frustrated? Wrecked? Maintaining the status quo isn’t working. We’re losing ground. It’s time to unleash a church movement that changes the world. It’s time to take ground. Together. At the Converge Unleash conference, we’ll help you unleash the gospel by giving you strategies, tools and new ways to strengthen your church and plant healthy, life-giving churches that will impact generations for eternity.
