Rise Church Building Fund: Will You Give?

Many of you have been following Converge’s Church Planting in Michigan. In the last twelve years, we have grown from 50 churches to 78 churches.
 
Rise Church in Romulus, MI, led by Pastor Aaron Hicks, is one of those new church plants with Converge. Pastor Aaron and his family are real heroes for all pastors and church planters to emulate. They have displayed true grit while facing many challenges. Because of COVID, they lost their meeting space and have been meeting virtually, yet today they have an opportunity to purchase their own meeting space.
 
Here is a video of Rise Church’s story:

As a new church, they need help with their down payment. They can make the mortgage payment yet lack the capital for the down payment. We are looking to help raise an additional $70,000 for their down payment. Converge MidAmerica is offering a Matching Gift of $25,000 to help them. If you would be willing to share this with your congregation, we know it would be a great encouragement to this new church in purchasing their permanent home.

Since COVID, we have been able, through the generosity of our Converge Churches in Illinois, to help two new churches secure down payments for their first building totaling over $150,000. We are asking all of our Michigan churches to help Rise Church through their generosity. “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed” (Proverbs 11:25).

Pastor Aaron, his family, and Rise Church are true heroes. Thanks for considering this opportunity!
