Converge is a movement of churches working to help people meet, know, and follow Jesus. We do this by starting and strengthening churches together worldwide. For more than 165 years, we’ve helped churches and individuals bring life change to communities in the U.S. and around the world through church planting and discipleship multiplication, leadership training and coaching and global missions.

We often talk about being “Better Together.” Throughout our history, we have seen churches, leaders and missionaries join forces throughout God’s power to accomplish the impossible.

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.
