Our churches come together around something greater than a compelling mission. What brings us together is Christ’s completed work on the cross. Because of the cross, we have forgiveness from our past, power for our present and hope for our future. As a result, we converge around the cross to take what Christ has done for us and make it known to others. Our goal is to give every person the opportunity to hear the gospel, say “yes” to Jesus, grow in faith, be equipped to serve and be sent out. We want every person to experience a life-changing, personal relationship with Jesus.

How to participate

In this next season of ministry, our prayer is that every individual would lead someone to Christ and disciple him or her: Each One Reach One, Each One Raise One. And we call every church to start a congregation and send a missionary: Each One Start One, Each One Send One.

Whether you’re a lay leader, nurse, businessman, student, pastor or missionary, you have a part to play in Converge’s 10-year vision. We ask you to commit to pray for God’s wisdom, courage and favor so that many people around the world will meet, know and follow Jesus.

We also ask that you prayerfully commit to these four challenges:

reach-one-raise-one
EACH ONE

Reach One

Converge knows the value strong churches add to people, communities and nations, and it shows through a commitment to strengthen churches by investing in leaders. Our church is much more effective in reaching people for Christ because we’re stronger spiritually, organizationally and relationally.
