We have the Google Nonprofit Grant, however, we have not used it for over a year. We need assistance in getting restarted.
We have been in a redevelopment phase of our software and site. It's time to go to market. With the Google AdWords Grant, we hope to focus on a few key target markets to launch the Converge program effectively.
YWAM Converge is a network of ministries in YWAM International. The YWAM Converge Network is led by a growing core group of Managing Partners who lead regional and vocational ministry teams focused on one or more spheres of influence, such as the arts, business, education, media, and more.
Vision: Making a difference. Spiritual formation of students for the transformation of nations.
Mission: YWAM Converge connects students to missions projects.
At YWAM Converge 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.
The Converge internships program and its corresponding online course serves our vision by developing missions-minded leaders for every sphere of influence. We facilitate opportunities for students to learn how to make a difference by designing and implementing their own personalized missions projects. Our target students are from anywhere; they are ready to go into ALL the world, including EVERY area of influence. (Mt. 28:18-20). In addition to the Converge Course, we develop curriculum and resources, conduct retreats, short-courses, and broadcast the Converge Stories podcast.
Since 1989, we have coordinated 75 internships (over 340 students from over 110 universities to over 40 countries) to help start businesses and plant churches, install water pumps, establish therapy routines for disabled, perform research in clinics, develop nutritional plans for hospices, and create curriculum for schools. With Converge platform, we are preparing to match, equip, and send over 300 interns per year.
