Christ Community Church is part of the Converge movement of Churches. Jesus knew what his mission was, and he didn’t waste any time getting around to it. Everything he said, everything he did and everywhere he went was motivated by his life’s mission. Thus, it is no surprise that at the end of his life he was able to say, “I have completed the mission you gave me….”
THE MISSION OF CONVERGE CHURCHES
Our heart is to see the reign of Christ extended from life to life and place to place, all over the world. So across our movement we share one common mission:
Multiplying transformational churches.
THE FOCUS OF CONVERGE CHURCHES
- Connecting God’s people around God’s purposes…
- that he might ignite movements of reproduction…

Converge is a Movement…
We’re a movement of churches working together to strengthen and start more churches. Our mission is to multiply transformational churches and we do that using these key ministry strategies:
Grow Spiritually. It is Christ who builds his church. Because that’s true, we want everything we do to display our desire to glorify God by trusting in the power of his Word, his Spirit, his Son and his delight in prevailing prayer. We are committed to prayer and spiritual transformation.
Plant Churches. Because we believe the life of Christ is meant to be reproduced from life to life and church to church, we are committed to planting new congregations. We believe it’s the most effective evangelism strategy for seeing the gospel brought into communities and people groups. We are committed to planting multiplying movements of church planting around the world.
Mobilize Churches. We want to see existing churches mobilized for mission. One way we do this is through coaching church leaders to build healthy community and healthy leadership. They then pray and strategize to seek God’s vision for building bridges into their communities. We are committed to strengthening churches.
Develop Leaders. We believe transformational churches are well-led churches. We want to see transformational leaders multiplied for our churches across the United States as well as movements all over the world. We provide many opportunities for our pastors and leaders to network and learn from each other.
Show Compassion. We don’t want people to only hear the gospel, we want them to experience Christ’s love firsthand as we practically respond to their needs. Through a variety of means we resource congregations and movements to show compassion—treating people not as projects, but as people God loves.
Reach Nations. We want to see the nations of the world transformed by the love of Christ. Our churches send out missionaries to the corners of the globe but they also work in their own communities to reach the diverse people groups living nearby.
Live Generously. Generosity is about much more than teaching people about stewardship. It’s about raising up generous communities of faith. About displaying the generous character of God’s heart and person, so that our ministries are filled with faith and vision. Our movement is committed to living generously.
These core ministries work together to resource churches and movements of churches—to see lives and communities changed by the power of the gospel. Christ, his cross and the gospel are central to all we do.
