Students are not meant to do life alone.

Converge is dedicated to providing a space where students can connect with others and connect with God through live music and biblical teaching. It gives students a chance to connect and grow deeper in their faith and gives those who don't know Jesus a chance to start a relationship with Him!

Converge meetings are temporarily suspended as part of Northwoods' COVID response plan. Under normal circumstances, Converge meets on Wednesday nights at 6pm on the Peoria Campus for students in grades 7–12. On the Galesburg Campus, Converge meets on Sunday nights at 6pm for students in grades 9–12.


Worship Experience

Converge is committed to seeing students experience the presence of God through live worship music and pastoral teaching that engage and prepare their hearts and minds to encounter Jesus.

Biblical Teaching

We exist to reach students far from God and help them to follow Him. Every message is relevant to what students are facing in their daily lives. It is geared towards helping students grow deeper in their faith and will give those who don't know Jesus a chance to start a relationship with Him.

Fun, Friends, and More!

We want students to want to come to Converge! Each week we have special games and activities that give students a chance to engage with one another, unwind, and have fun! Throughout the year, we plan special events and retreats where students take a break from everyday life, enjoy time with others, and grow closer to God.
