Church Planting

The message of Jesus through the church brings hope to the world and changes lives through Christ’s love and truth. That’s why Converge’ church planting team is passionate about starting churches that start churches. We are committed to helping you start healthy, missionally minded churches and launch new campuses.

If you are interested in learning about church planting or starting a multisite, please contact us. We’d love to partner with you to help people meet, know and follow Jesus.
