Each month we highlight a church planter in our movement. In July 2020 we celebrate with Pastor Joshua Young who leads Redeeming Hope. A handful of people just came to Christ through his ministry and we couldn’t be happier for this new life!
Our the Executive Board of Overseers unanimously affirmed the following statement on Racism and the Gospel. We are encouraging every Converge MidAmerica pastor, staff member, and lay leader to sign this statement in affirmation of the biblical truth it promotes.
Last week, the Executive Board of Overseers for Converge MidAmerica and the Board of Stewards for Converge Southeast sensed the Holy Spirit leading us to join our ministries and unanimously affirmed a merger plan and agreement.
After two months of multi-level meetings with both boards, a joint task force and staff, we have agreed to propose this merger to the delegates of our churches for a vote of affirmation.
Converge Southeast is scheduling a virtual Annual Meeting for August 26, 2020 and Converge MidAmerica is scheduling a virtual Special Business Meeting for September 24, 2020. We will provide more information on the proposed plan and merger agreement in the next few weeks.
In preparation for this historical vote and unprecedented missional opportunity, Converge MidAmerica and Converge Southeast will be hosting a series of virtual town hall and prayer meetings. The first Town Hall Meeting will be July 28, 2020, at 7 pm CST (8 pm EST) with the Converge MidAmerica and Southeast Executive Teams.
Thank you for your prayers as we consider this opportunity.
