Planting with Converge

Distinctives

We've learned from experience to choose those who align with the Christian values and agendas similar to our own. We take seriously our responsibility to help place candidates in the best possible ministry fit. That "matching process" includes interviews with you and your spouse, professional assessments, geographical considerations, and sincere prayer.  Because we want you to be comfortable and equipped as you launch in ministry with us, we purposefully partner with teachable visionaries who project a positive approach to creative ministry. Along with that, here's a quick list to describe the planters, pastors, and people in our churches.
