We absolutely believe that we can do more together than we can do individually. Together Groups allow us to care for and encourage each other, learn together, and dream about how we can see our churches strengthened and multiplied. We currently have 8 Together Groups meeting throughout the region, and we welcome all lead and associate pastors to consider joining a group in their area.
Adopt a Church
There may already be a church plant in your community that speaks a different language, comprised of immigrants, or an ethnic minority. You could potentially allow them to use your building free of cost or a small charge.
Church Planting Fund
We encourage all our Converge MidAmerica churches to consider partnering financially by giving 1.5% of their budget towards Church Strengthening and 1.5% towards Church Planting.
A Triad is a temporary governance board for a new church. The meetings can be held remotely using video conferencing. They happen on a quarterly basis. This small investment in time is a huge help to a planter and the newly forming church.
Church Planting Residency
Converge has put together material and systems to help you start a residency program. Your church can invest in church planting by providing space and experience for pastoral growth.
Church Planting Sunday
June 7, 2020
To highlight church planting, Converge churches across the country are joining together and taking special Church Planting offering the first week in June. We can provide materials (such as video and handouts) to help you cast vision for this special weekend.
