Converge is a summer camp that exists to glorify God by making students into growing disciples of Jesus Christ.
We preach the authority of God’s word without apology, we exalt the name of Jesus above every other name, we believe firmly in the power of prayer, and we share the good news of the Gospel with boldness. All along the way, we have found that ridiculous amounts of fun through humor, games, and quality time are relational goldmines.
In our four years, we have given ourselves to pursuing the means of grace that God has supplied. Not clever tricks or gimmicks, but simply the Gospel preached and Christ exalted. In this pursuit we have seen dozens of students confess Christ as Lord for the first time and scores of others experience radical growth in their spiritual lives.
As the summer of 2014 approached, Daniel Seymore (one of the pastors at Harvest Bible Church) had a dream and a desire for the students of his church to be part of a summer camp where God worked in dramatic ways through the preaching of His Word and the exaltation of His Son. Being new to his position, he was naive enough, courageous enough, and trusting God enough to endeavor to create a camp just like this. A coalition of churches from all over the southwest (North Phoenix, East Valley, Flagstaff, Sacramento, Ventura, Denver, Albuquerque, etc) met at Forest Home Ojai Valley and launched a camp called Uncommon.
After 3 years of seeing the Lord save students and build our group beyond the capacity of Forest Home, we began to look for a new facility to host us, and dream bigger about what God could do through this camp.
Our Future: Converge
Our search for a facility has led us to a camp called Glorieta, just outside Sante Fe, New Mexico. It was created in 1949 as the Lifeway Glorieta Conference Center, and it sits on 2400 acres of beautiful pine-tree covered mountains. It is bursting to the brim with fun and exciting things to do (ziplines, rapelling, drift trikes, blobs, and more) and it can literally host thousands of students at one time.
We renamed the camp "Converge" and brought it to Glorieta in 2017. It was our best year yet. With all this is mind, we believe that the best is still to come for this summer camp. We want to see God extend the glory of his name through the making of students into growing disciples of Christ. If you are part of a local church in the southwest, if you are a family looking for a place to, if you are a student yourself, Converge 2017 is for you. Contact Us, or Register Now. We can't wait to partner with you for the sake of the Gospel.
