we exist to welcome, establish, teach, & disciple teens in christ
WELCOME THE UNWELCOME; As Christ does in Mark chapter 2, we want to love the unwelcomed and unloved of our community. Many teens today feel like they are not welcomed or wanted and our goal is to give teens a place to come and feel welcomed and loved.
ESTABLISH REAL RELATIONSHIPS; We know that teens can understand when people are not being real and people really do not care. We work hard to know teens on a individual basis. Not just who they are, but what they are going through right now in their lives.
TEACH THE WORD; This is the only teaching our teens will receive. We believe that the Bible is the living word of God. We as Converge understand that by teaching the Bible and relating it to our lives is monumental in development of our lives and the teens we reach. Our goal is to not just teach the Word, but live it out on a daily basis. Once we establish real relationships that opens up the opportunity to pour the Word into lives in different situations when teens are needing assistance.
DISCIPLE THE BELIEVERS; We aim to come along side teens from any situation and push them to a better walk with Christ. We do this by many one on one conversations and small group Bible study sessions. That is the purpose of our "Huddle Groups" which meet on Wednesday nights after services. Our goal is to get Jr. High and Sr. High School age teens ready for the real world and give them the tools they need to be strong adult believers and leaders of their faith.
Transforming the world one person at a time through our loving obedience to Jesus as we give our neighbors as many opportunities as possible with Jesus, because we believe that even one moment with Jesus can change anything and everything.
