Training people in the local church for the local church.

Who are Converge Residencies for?
All of God’s people are commissioned to be used by God to their fullest potential. Some of those people are called by God to engage by way of vocational ministry. Examples include:

  • A college or graduate school student connected to a Converge church.
  • A soon-to-be graduate who desires to take the next step in their development.
  • An individual who may be sensing God calling him/her to vocational ministry, but desires help in bridging the gap from their current profession.
  • A current church leader who is feeling the call to church planting, but desires to see it up close and personal as they engage in the Spirit’s leading.

What is a Converge Residency?
A Resident will enter into a 1- or 2-year Residency agreement with a local Converge church. Converge will deliver one year’s worth of vocational training to the Resident through online videos, articles, books and Resident network interactions. Completion of the vocational training will result in an Advanced Certificate of Church Leadership from Converge.
