Through membership with Convergence, we want to tell the world about you and connect you with others who are doing incredible things.
Your Convergence membership connects you with other faith leaders, provides content and resources to enrich your journey, and amplifies your voice. Membership makes you visible to us, and we make you visible to others—others who are doing likewise and still others who need your message.
Convergence connects those who are interested in togethering, who believe that together we can do more to create a just and generous world. Through connections we build content to amplify the message of hope for a just and generous world.
We do this through a three step process called "Who, Do, So."
Start by telling us WHO are you are, whether you’re a Leader, Learner, Artist, or Activist. This allows you to customize the content you’d like to receive from us. You might find yourself in more than one WHO.
Once you’ve indicated the WHO(s) with which you most identify, tell us what you’d like to DO with us. We’ll connect you with other members who are doing likewise and create opportunities to participate. We will also share resources. We truly believe that each of you is up to something wonderful in the world and you have resources to offer the rest of the network and to share with our larger audience. We want to help you get the word out about what you’re up to and connect you to others who can support you and benefit from your work.
The SO, the goals of membership, are connection, resourcing, and amplification. Through the connections you make in Convergence you will find new resources to help you on your journey, you will become a resource for others as what you’re up to in the world finds new outlets and audiences. Togethering in this way amplifies our voice of hope for a just and generous world. You will access your member benefits and contribute to membership through a your member dashboard.
