Don't face your calling as a pastor alone

Leading a congregation of staff and volunteers to accomplish the eternal purposes of God is a challenging endeavor. Along with being a powerful communicator and counselor, pastors are also often expected to be experts in the fields of finance, office administration, grounds maintenance, volunteer disbursement and child care coordination. It is not a calling to be taken lightly. It is also not a calling to be faced alone.

We understand the unique needs of pastors and desires to join with them on their ministry journey. Outside support is beneficial in assuring the ongoing health of a pastor in his ministry, family life and personal walk with God. Converge pastors receive the support they need to help them fulfill their calling and make a greater Kingdom impact.

Converge pastors receive:

Ministry checkup
Pastor, how often do you ask yourself, “How am I doing?” We can help you answer this essential question and provide you support through the challenges of leading a church. Maybe you’ve reached a ministry milestone, are considering activities for a sabbatical or simply feel burned out. We’ll give you the tracks to run on to make the most of your ministry.

My relationship with Converge MidAmerica has been life-giving. They have empowered our church to strive towards being a healthy, biblically functioning body that is not only impacting our community, but linking arms with other churches to start and strengthen churches.
