Over 350 people gathered for Converge 2015 at the Deer Creek Lodge and Conference Center in Mt. Sterling, Ohio on March 20-22. The event, sponsored by GCI Generations Ministries, started as a gathering of GenMin camp leaders and expanded through the years to include young people, pastors, ministry coordinators, camp and short-term mission trip leaders and others interested in exploring the mission of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In keeping with the theme of Epic Story, Converge 2015 proclaimed the message that every person’s story gets its meaning and purpose in the Epic Story of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Wm. Paul Young (in the center of the picture below), best-selling author of The Shack and Crossroads, was a featured speaker at Converge 2015 along with GCI President, Joseph Tkach.
Here are comments from a few people who attended:
- It was excellent and first-class, on all fronts, from start to finish. I can’t commend or thank you enough.
- I had an awesome experience with everyone at Converge this year. I really love how it gives our generations, both young and older, a fun, Spirit-filled time to bridge the generational gap. I can’t wait for next year.
- I had the privilege of attending my first Converge and let me start by telling you Converge was absolutely amazing!
- Thank you for orchestrating one of the most Gospel-inspiring GCI events to date.

WOW! Watching Paul Young’s video brought back AWESOME memories of the 3 day retreat in Ohio! The Spirit was flowing and the praises were pouring out! The stories were EPIC, and oh yes, that was our theme. I had the privilege of being part of these camp prep meetings since 2002! They have grown, improved and multiplied many times over. God is good, all the time! Hope to see you (plural) at Converge East or West next year. Be there!
‘Epically’ inspirational. I thought last year’s Converge East was amazing, but this year’s national event Rocked The Plot from introduction to ‘final’ amen.
I don’t mean to be mellow-dramatic, but my growing knowing of the Father/Son/Spirit keeps breathing new life and vision into me. Moved by God’s amazing grace, manifest in Jesus Christ, we are able to live and breathe and share the good news with courage and favor to all who are hungry for real life. The truth of us is resides in the truth of whom Jesus IS.
