Converge is an annual gathering hosted by GCI Generations Ministries. It has always been an amazing time of worship and fellowship in the triune love of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We anticipate that 2015 will be the best ever. Because there will be no U.S. regional conferences in 2015, we’re opening Converge 2015 to a general church audience. Converge is no longer just for youth ministry types!
In 2015, Converge will be held on March 20-22 in one location—beautiful Deer Creek Lodge and Conference Center located near Mt. Sterling, Ohio, 30 minutes south of Columbus. The facility has over 3,000 acres with hiking, fishing, boating and golf. The entire facility will be ours that weekend, including their 110 hotel-style lodge rooms. To see pictures of the lodge rooms click here.
Converge 2015 will have something for everyone, no matter your age or ministry focus. Guest speaker Paul Young (pictured at left), author of The Shack, will share the jaw-dropping, life-changing, epic story of the gospel. GCI president, Joseph Tkach will also address one of the plenary sessions and there will be workshops focused on all kinds of ministry renewal needs: youth ministry, camp leadership and management, worship leading, intro to Christian leadership, theology and practice, missional life flow, children’s ministry, GCI Internships, camp curriculum, ministry coaching and more. Childcare will be provided so you can have uninterrupted time at plenary sessions and workshops. To take advantage of this service, provide the names and ages of your children when you register.
Converge 2015 begins at 7:00 P.M. EST on Friday, March 20 and concludes at noon EST on Sunday, March 22. It’s important to arrive early enough to check in prior to the opening session. If flying to Converge, the Port Columbus International Airport (CMH) is only 45 miles north. GenMin will provide limited transportation to and from CMH on a first-come, first-served basis at $12/person ($20/couple/family). If you want transportation, email Jeff Broadnax at email@example.com. The Dayton and Cincinnati airports are also within reasonable distance.
