“Sunsets, snowflakes, and thumbprints…

all are expressions of uniqueness.”

In September, pastors from all over the SoCAL District gathered in Santa Maria, CA for ConVerge18. Our theme was Younique; where we explored how our story, and the stories of those around us, impact and inform our unique kingdom contributions.

The videos from ConVerge18 can be streamed from our site OR you can go directly to our Vimeo page (by clicking the vimeo logo in the corner of the video) to download for offline viewing at different resolutions.
