Converge churches are boldly sharing the gospel and inviting people to say “Yes” to Jesus. Scores of churches are experiencing evangelistic growth and baptisms at record numbers. This movement has been fueled by both our new church starts and existing church models that demonstrate serious gospel proclamation.

Overseas ministry has always been important to the Missionary Church, but in the last 10 years God has brought us in contact with strong national leaders in several countries who have a heart for making disciples. Through our discipleship networks worldwide, we have seen an incredible increase in the individual conversions and church plants.

Since 2007 the Evangelical Presbyterian Church has experienced dramatic growth through the reception of churches from other denominations. Since 2010 church planting in the United States and globally has also produced exciting growth. EPC World Outreach is successfully promoting church planting where people have no contact with Christ and the gospel.

The Presbyterian Church in America’s growth has primarily come from church planting and large churches becoming larger. Our campus ministry has reached many students who become members of PCA churches. Ethnic diversity has expanded. Nearly 20 percent of our churches are Korean. We’ve also seen an increase in multi-ethnic congregations.

In the past five years, 1,597 new Assemblies of God churches have opened in the USA. In the past two years, more than one new church has opened every day. Ethnic minorities make up 41 percent of the Assemblies of God in the USA, and forms a growing edge of our movement.
