Our projects are primarily investments in the future by developing emerging leaders working on projects related to their Spiritual Passion, Professional Interests, and Personal Skills.
Most are student-led projects through our Converge Missional Internships and University Discipleship outreaches.
You can donate to one of our major projects, such as water wells, school buildings, refugee housing, Bible distribution, vehicle purchases, etc.
