Our church planting resident will be asked to undergo Converge’s Church Planting Training (online), which will equip the resident in church planting ministry and systems, fundraising, and how to effectively use his gifts in ministry. In addition, the resident will be connected with a vast network of seasoned church planters. Upon completion of this training, the resident will go through Converge’s Church Planter’s Assessment process.
Converge’s church planting process, First Baptist will equip the resident

A personalized ministry training process will be put together for the
