To start and strengthen churches worldwide, Converge Heartland is working to develop a pipeline of new gospel-centered ministers by facilitating two to three-year local churches residencies. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to be a resident, support a resident, or to serve as a host church for a resident!
A sustaining local church has a biblical order to it. At a foundational level, this order begins with a biblically qualified elder/pastor (1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, 1 Peter 5:1-5) who is surrendered to Christ and to biblical accountability (1 Timothy 5:19-22).
As a multi-generational gathering shared their experiences of spiritual development and life change, the vast majority pointed to a variety of Sunday school teachers who had profoundly impacted their lives by serving as relational and living examples of the applied truth of God’s word.
