A Seed

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”  He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.” Luke 17: 5-6 There is a story about a minister who sought out Mother Teresa […]

Doubt

“Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:29-31 Dear […]

What Are You Looking For?

Dear Convergence Family, There is a saying, “what you look for you will find.” This has always been intriguing to me. For a long season of my life, I spent nearly all of my time looking for what was wrong with everything. Whatever I was looking at, I felt it was my mission in life […]

Crucified with Christ!

Dear Convergence Family, I was reading Galatians 2:20 yesterday, which reads: “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me…” In my devotional the author talks about how this refers to a breaking of our “individual independence of God” and allowing Christ to use our lives as He […]

Christ-Centered Community!

Dear Convergence Family, You are not alone! I want to reiterate this reality and necessity to you. You and I were not meant to be alone. From the beginning of creation, God knew that it wasn’t good for us to be alone. In light of this, I want to encourage you to be proactively part […]

Ekklesia…The Called Out Ones!

Dear Convergence Family, I’m so excited as we begin a new sermon series this Sunday!  For the coming weeks, we’ll be learning about “church.”  I know that there are some of us who have grown up in it, some of us who are just experiencing it for the first time at Convergence, some of us […]

Rooted!

  “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:6-7‬ ‭NIV‬‬ Dear Convergence Family, As I’ve been reading through Colossians, these verses have really been encouraging me. […]

Watering Your Soul!

Dear Convergence Family, I’m so excited for this upcoming season of ministry! I can sense that God is doing something in the midst of our church community. I keep hearing from people that they’re praying more, reading the Bible more, and having a greater sense of the Spirit’s presence in their lives. It’s both encouraging […]

Redeem the Text!

Dear Convergence Family, Living in this information age definitely creates tension for me. For instance, I love the fact that I can call or text anyone at anytime from anywhere. Simultaneously, I hate the distraction that calls and texts can create when something or someone else has my attention. That being said, I want to […]

Walk Together (or Run)!

Dear Convergence Family, Every Monday I go running with a couple brothers from church. This past Monday, one of the brothers happened to be out of town so I was thinking “day off” in my mind.  Then I got a text from the other brother asking if we were still running. I took a minute […]
