God never stops working!1 minute read

On a recent trip to Haiti, the president of Converge, Gary Rohrmayer and the vice president of church partnerships, Ernie Cabrera, had the opportunity to experience for themselves what God has been doing there.

After stopping at one of the local church partners, The Tabernacle, Gary and Ernie met with the current pastor, Dr. Jephthe Lucien, who left his role as the leader of the Jerusalem Baptist Mission to succeed the founding pastor, Pastor Ecclesia, who passed away last year. The church is doing well despite the change in leadership and the pandemic. One of their greatest needs involves the completion of the roof at The Tabernacle. A large building that looks a little like a colosseum, it has a large open area in the center where people can gather, praise, dance, and worship together in front of the podium. They need to raise $125,000 for the new roof.

The ministry at The Tabernacle is thriving! They have implemented disciple making training with our Converge Caribbean Missionary Steve Storkel and have seen over 300 new professions of faith in this church in just 2021 alone.

Gary and Ernie met with many of the Converge pastors of Haiti with over 60+ being able to come from all over the country. They met at The Tabernacle for this meeting and training. There are currently 150 churches in Haiti that have been fully affiliated with Converge with two more groups in the process of affiliating. One group has 20 churches and another has 10 churches. When Gary and Ernie were in Cap-Haitien they were able to meet with the leaders of these two networks. They are looking forward to finishing their paperwork and getting them affiliated with the Converge board.

Gary Rohrmayer said of the trip, “We have some high-caliber pastors and leaders in Haiti! I could not be more excited about the future of starting and strengthening churches in Haiti and beyond.”

Special note: Converge MidAmerica has established an emergency Relief Fund to assist Pastors, churches and our network partners to provide immediate relief to those effect by the earthquake this weekend. You can give to the Converge Caribbean Relief Fund here.
