ZAP Educational Endowment Fund

The ZAP Educational Endowment Fund was established by the leadership of Converge Worldwide in recognition of the priorities and challenges of present day educational opportunities.  A motivated and interested donor has begun this small effort to address a few of the issues facing our present day missionaries and the education of their children.  In the future we trust that this fund will grow…for the glory of God and for the advancement of our mission and those who serve as our missionaries.
