1999 was the year. It was a year of new beginnings. Staci and I married in October, we had a new apartment, a new church and new jobs in the secular industry. It wasn’t long before we realized that we would never be truly fulfilled unless we were whole-heartedly, unashamedly, in fast pursuit of the kingdom of God. God had put a vision in our hearts for ministry, and we couldn’t shake it!
In that same year God gave us a vision for a new church in the San Diego area. I remember it to this day. It was a beautiful morning, I was praying in the front room of our tiny one bedroom apartment. In that little apartment God gave me a big vision. It was the vision for a new, creative, kingdom focused church in the San Diego area. People were on their knees crying out to God for their families, for their neighbors and for their city. The presence of God was so thick that I can still envision it today. It’s that vision that Staci and I have been chasing ever since.
Sixteen years, six churches and four cities later, we believe that God is saying, “Now is the time!”. We’re excited to get to work. We’re excited to watch Him work! We’re excited to see the vision become a reality!
We envision a place where creative minds are set free to give birth to a collective mission.
We envision a place where people are encouraged to find and fulfill their purpose in Christ.
We envision a place where diverse communities are encouraged, spiritual gifts are enhanced and new leaders are empowered to pursue their own visions.
It’s all finally coming together right here where it started, and that’s why we’re calling it Convergence Community Church.
PRAY: First and foremost, we covet your prayers. Simply send us an email and we’ll put you on our prayer list. We view this as a partnership, so while you’ll get regular updates from us on how you can pray, we hope to get the same from you. We’d love to begin partnering with you wherever we find ourselves and we know that starts with prayer.
GIVE: We’ve watched over the years as God has provided for our needs in miraculous ways. One of my favorite mottos has always been “We want to do something so crazy, so outrageous, so impossible for the Lord that it’s destined to fail unless He’s in it.” For whatever reason that always seems to revolve around money. It takes people like you giving of their resources to make a vision this big become a reality. And His word promises that if you give, not out of compulsion but from His leading, “you will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.” (2 Cor. 9:11, ESV) So please pray about what God would have you give and click this link to give, or send a check to:
