CONVERGE 2020

As a leader of the missions movement in your local church, you dream about a greater level of engagement with Alliance missions. Why? Because no matter the size of your congregation, you play a significant role among our family of Alliance churches in taking the best news ever to the least-reached people. Hence our theme for our 10th anniversary of Converge…

Your Church…Vital to Kingdom Missions

Jesus told us, “…the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers…”
(Luke 10:2).

January 12–16, 2020, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Who is Invited?

While Converge is designed for any pastor, missions leader, or outreach coordinator from an Alliance church with an attendance of 200 or more, all churches are welcomed.

What to Expect

Everywhere we look we see desperate people who need to hear about Jesus—in your city and around the world. As a Christ-centered, Acts 1:8 family of churches, The Alliance is passionate about bringing gospel access to those who have little to no opportunity to hear the good news. Every Alliance church plays a vital role in making this happen.

This year our theme is ”Your Church…Vital to Kingdom Missions.“ We will focus on five elements of engagement: building relationships, praying, giving, sending, and promoting. Throughout this three-day conference, you will enjoy thought-provoking seminars led by insightful speakers, table discussions, breakout sessions with your peers, prayer, communion, and fellowship. You will also have an afternoon to explore some of the beautiful attractions in the Colorado Springs area as well as opportunities to meet with National Office staff, who are available to answer your questions on a variety of topics. Most importantly, you will have the chance to connect with other church missions leaders to share local and global outreach challenges, strategies, and success stories. You will be encouraged to learn how God is working through Alliance churches just like yours and how you can engage more.

Join us at Converge 2020, where you will be inspired, refreshed, and equipped for a renewed calling to be the leader God has positioned you to be—to help your church engage to a much greater degree with Alliance missions.

In Their Own Words

  • Well done! It’s a meaningful gathering that left me with a lot of practical things to implement.
  • Most of what we gain at these conferences is a chance to connect with others and gain ideas; that happens well in this format/setting.
  • Converge 2019 was excellent—yet again—and I’d like others to experience it as well.
  • It was my first time at Converge, and I felt like all the people I met were encouraging and open to sharing. Well done!
  • Will be back with even more of the team next year…
