Logo Completed

You’ve already seen it on the website, but our logo design is completed! David Hobbs (of FBC Hendersonville; Hendersonville, TN) has done an outstanding job of creating a visual branding for Convergence Ministries, Inc. Our vision statement is to see people encounter God, experience community, and engage culture. So, we will refer to our spiritual family as e3.

You'll notice the arrows denoting movement and depicting both an inward and outward dimension to our spiritual family. In addition, you can see the color selection has been intentionally made in order to connect with the green, energy conscious, environment-loving Missoula culture. When showing people (in coffee shops, etc.) the logo, almost every person has said "What's e3?" This question is exactly what we had hoped this logo would provoke. Showing someone the logo is resulting in opportunities to share the vision for Convergence and for e3.

Thanks David for making your gifts and abilities available to the Lord and to church planting in Montana!

Grace Church in Jackson, MI Sending Volunteer Missionaries to Missoula Later in July

Rich & Nancy were privileged to be part of the Grace Church Family from 1994 to 2004. Rich served the Grace Family as Associate Pastor (Worship & Students), Interim Pastor, Senior Pastor, and Mission Pastor. Rich's long-time friend, Mike Lee, is currently serving as Lead Pastor at Grace. Pastor Michael Dendy (Children & Youth) will be bringing approximately 30 volunteers to Missoula the week of July 21 - 25.

The volunteer group of mostly high school students will be doing servant evangelism projects throughout the Missoula area and getting the word out about e3. Please pray for this group as they travel to and from Montana and as they serve in Missoula.
