Jim & Lisa Black

Jim and Lisa Black come to Converge with eight years of missionary experience, four years of missions administration experience, and fourteen years of pastoral experience. Jim is the International Leader: Africa which means he oversees Converge mission endeavors in Sub-Saharan Africa. Jim’s role is to develop and recruit transformational leaders who will make disciples, multiply leaders and multiply congregations. One of the big tasks in this region of the world is to identify people groups who have yet to hear the good news that God is reconciling the world to himself through Jesus Christ. Jim will also recruit new missionaries to model and teach the life changing message of the gospel to these people groups.

Jim will also continue to serve as a catalyst to identify, equip, and mobilize transformational leaders among an unreached people group in Nigeria where Jim & Lisa had previously worked. The Blacks started reaching out to this people group in 2001 and have maintained contact with them since that time.

Lisa’s focus will be to manage communication with their ministry partner team and mobilize prayer involvement for the people group in Nigeria and the rest of the ministry in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Jim and Lisa will continue to be based in the U.S. and travel to and from Africa as needed.

The Blacks immediate job is to develop a ministry partner team who will join with them in prayer and finances to enable the Blacks to invest themselves fully in this new role. Jim and Lisa would be delighted if you would consider joining their ministry partner team.
