We are a praying ministry. As people — as an organization — loved by God, it is our privilege to bring all things before our Father.
We believe that through our ministry and partnerships, more Canadians would engage in Scripture and be equipped to share the Gospel. Through the Holy Spirit, more lives are transformed by the Living Word of God.
By God’s Grace, Our Strategic Priorities up to 2025 are:
50 New Churches started through our partnerships
Increase Scripture Placement by 5%
CURRENT CHURCH PLANTS
CURRENT SCRIPTURES PLACED
Bring partners together to expand our reach to see people transformed by God.
Awana International Canada (AIC) and Converge Canada partner for the multiplication of young leaders in Canada. Advocates are leaders who support churches, through training and leadership development, as they strive to realize vision for children and youth ministry. Through the Advocate program young leaders are provided with an opportunity to start their ministry work while building relationships with churches and securing financial support. We value this partnership because we believe that with the financial support of Converge Canada and our access to young leaders, we can reach more kids with the gospel and train more leaders here in Canada.
Converge Canada has been a wonderful support to Crossroad Bible Institute Canada in reaching prisoners with the Good News of Jesus. Through an in-depth correspondence discipleship program, Converge Canada helps to provide Bibles to men and women in prison and, with ongoing support, equips volunteer instructors to disciple inmates. We have been tremendously blessed by our partnership.
One Hope Canada is grateful for the partnership with Converge Canada. Both organizations are passionate about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to children and youth. With their help, One Hope Canada has been able to expand their ministry to new geographical locations, introduce new ministry programs year-round, and share new Scriptures to children and youth. God has blessed these efforts and lives have been forever changed by the Good News of Jesus.
Helen Keller, the deaf and blind American author said, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." This is certainly true with the partnership between the Converge Canada and Scripture Union Canada. With Converge Canada’s support, Scripture Union trains young adults to share the Word with children through the medium of summer sports camps. Little becomes much because we do it together! Thousands of children are formed and transformed by the Word every year!
Our partnership goes beyond generous financial support and represents a significant collaboration to identify and develop church planters from a variety of denominations across Canada. Our focus is to join Jesus’ mission by making disciples through gospel-centred, Spirit-led new churches that support one another in kingdom-minded relationships. Converge Canada partners with us by investing money, time, and expertise while demonstrating keen interest in the efficacy of our efforts to discern whom God is calling to start new churches and then resource those leaders effectively.
Tyndale Intercultural Ministries Centre has been in partnership with Converge Canada in helping to bring intercultural training to pastors, missionaries, church planters, and ministry leaders. Over the years, we have collected greeting cards and hand-written notes from staff that shows the warm relational nature of their organization. Working with Converge Canada has been a wonderful experience that has helped us fulfill our vision for the church from all nations to bring Christ to all nations.

Our partnership is one of those relationships whose reach and influence extends far beyond two organizations. It has meant that thousands of students, from Canada and all around the world, have met Jesus in Scripture in significant and life-changing ways. Through the four years of partnership, more than 2,000 students discovered Jesus as they dig into the Gospel of Mark. We have appreciated the passion for putting Scripture in front of students and to seeing it transform them. It has been a great blessing to InterVarsity to partner with Converge Canada.
