Convergence East 2019
In February of 2018, the first Convergence East conference was held on Long Island, New York. It was powerful and unique, with a very distinct vision; to bring saints from different denominations and streams together “as family.” We were very intentional from the beginning not to make this an event driven by the fame of the speakers. It was all about a Father and His children. The worship was saturated with His Presence. Perhaps this quote, from an attendee who serves in a ministry well-known for their large conferences captured it best, “I have been to many conferences over the last 20 years. At face value this looked like any other. However, the way you were intentional to make it about God and His kids, made a big difference. I have never been to a conference where the tangible presence of His love was so thick and powerful. This was unlike any conference I have ever been to.” It is time for John 17:20-23 to come to fruition. The world desperately needs to see Him in the love we have for one another. This cause, this atmosphere-shifting love, He so desires His children to live from, is the glue that can hold us together and release the power of His Kingdom unlike anything we have seen before. We are a family, made to be an army saturated with His love.
Join us June 25th-28th at the Harvest Training Center in Cranford, New Jersey. We will love on Him, be loved by Him, and grow in love for each other. There is something bubbling under the surface. The pressure is building towards release. It is time for us to write our story together on the pages of history for His glory.
Over the last several decades, many voices have spoken into a future move of God in the immigrant cities of the East Coast. The Lord is moving His people into a place of unity and love. His prayer in John 17:20-26 is now becoming a reality; this will release a revival unlike any we’ve seen before. The I-95 corridor cities of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Charleston, Miami, Richmond, Raleigh, and Washington D.C. are the most strategic doorways to nationwide revival. At Convergence, many streams will come together to worship, pray, and prepare for the release of the Power of God. The worship teams and workshop teachers will come from all over the region. This will be a time where all the unique expressions of His body come together to honor God and one another. Convergence East 2019 will be a historic event.
