Convergence offers two ways of committing to the life of this community of faith.
A Steward is One who is takes on accountability for the resources God has entrusted to us. A Steward is one who identifies her/himself as a follower of Jesus Christ and wishes to unite with the Convergence family in a committed way of accountability. In doing so, one commits to God and one another to support the mission of Convergence by living out the church covenant as expressed in our bylaws. This “stewardship” is open to all who feel called to that responsibility and choose to engage in the preparation that is required. A Steward commits to regular and ongoing support of Convergence in the following ways: praying, serving, attending, contributing, promoting and financial giving. Collectively, the Stewards are the voting body of Convergence.
A Collaborator is one who partners with and supports the Convergence community, yet is unable or does not wish to be a Steward of Convergence. A Collaborator expresses a desire to support Convergence in some or all of the following ways: praying, serving, attending, contributing artistically, promoting, and financial giving as they choose and are able.
We offer this covenant as an expression of who are we trying to become in our life together under the Lordship of Christ. We commit ourselves to the lifelong challenge of growing as disciples of Jesus Christ and becoming increasingly like Him in all aspects of our lives, a pilgrimage for which we accept full and personal responsibility. We joyfully welcome into our fellowship any person who shares our commitment to Jesus Christ and our vision of who He is leading us to become.
