The urgent need of the church in the twenty-first century is Christians who are intellectually exhilarated by complex biblical truths yet unafraid to give public expression to deep emotional delight and heart-felt affection for Jesus; theologically sophisticated followers of Christ who are hungry for the revelatory gifts of the Spirit while always subject to the final authority of the written text of Scripture. Whereas some say this is impossible, we believe the Scriptures call us to labor in the grace of God for the whole-hearted and passionate embrace of both Word and Spirit.
Through Convergence we aim to instruct and encourage individual believers and local churches to eagerly embrace the functional authority of the written text of Scripture and to experience the full range of miraculous spiritual gifts, all to the glory of God in Christ. Convergence, as a ministry outreach of Bridgeway Church, seeks to achieve this goal by training and equipping the body through events and resources.
The first Convergence Conference took place in the Fall of 2017 with more than 1,400 people in attendance. We gathered for three days of teaching, worship, as well as prayer and prophetic ministry in downtown OKC. This led to the creation of Convergence: EQUIP, a more practical and hands-on equipping experience that is hosted at Bridgeway Church itself. Our first EQUIP workshop in July 2018 focused on building a prophetic ministry in the local church. Our second Convergence Conference was held in downtown OKC in the Fall of 2019. The theme of this conference was "The God Who Heals."
We are expectant for what the Lord has in store for the future!
