(NOTE: Converge is for any student, but there are opportunities for YWAMers as internship coordinators, Mentors, and Hosts.)
We built Converge because we believe everyone has a calling, following the crowd will not bring transformation, and a personalized missions project is the best way to discover your purpose.

“God gave me this experience and now I am responsible. I can’t act as if I am not aware. The internship connected me with great people who have a heart for the Middle East, and not just Christians, but Muslims and Jewish people too.”
