Who is Converge
Converge Oceania is a relational network, currently comprised of representatives of key ministry organisations and denominations with a vision to support and equip the church in Australia & New Zealand to continue to reach and disciple young people. We do this through prayerfully and practically supporting each other’s ministries, as well as working on joint projects that will support and equip the church to more effectively understand and engage young people. Converge Oceania is a part of the global Converge movement, which sits within the World Evangelical Alliance.
What to expect
At Converge 2021 we will explore new understandings of faith formation and wellbeing that are being generated by research into Australian young people (teens and young adults). You will be introduced to key principles and practices that shape the faith and wellbeing of the people you minister to including identifying the pivotal moments, key relationships, and influencing contexts in which formation takes place.
