“When serious followers of Jesus in any particular city become more consciously aware of one another, and intentional about connecting and learning from one another what they are learning from Jesus…you will have the makings of authentic spiritual awakening.” – Dallas Willard

Convergence is about convening leaders who are positioned for and invested in the transformation of their community and culture to relate, learn and act together.  Bringing leading believers together into collaborative relationships doing gospel good over months and years will bring measurable evidence of the change they want to see.

Convergence is the operational team of the ACTS Group working on the leaders’ strategy. Learn more at www.Convergence.World

Activating Coalitions of Transformative Leaders

Vision:

We facilitate an environment for cross sector conversation and collaboration among gospel centered leaders in the channels of social and cultural influence in cities and communities. We create virtual and actual environments where church, civic, marketplace, media, arts, education and nonprofit leaders connect, build community and find ways to collaborate with one another for gospel saturation and community transformation.   The most essential work is convening leaders who are positioned for and invested in the transformation of their community and culture to relate, learn and act together.
