District Executive Minister of Converge Heartland
Converge Heartland’s Vision: A Gospel-Centered Church Bringing Transformation to Every Heartland Community!
Converge Heartland’s Mission: Starting and strengthening churches throughout the Converge Heartland District which spans from North Dakota through Oklahoma, including the I-29 corridor of Missouri. Forty-one percent of the 11 million Heartland District inhabitants do not regularly attend or affiliate with any local church at all. Our present response to this challenging reality is that we currently have 57 Heartland District Churches with an aggregate weekly attendance of roughly 8,000 people. There is much more that must be done and, in His power, will be done.
MIGUEL & CLARA CASTILLO
Missionaries to Orphans in Haiti
They supply shelter, food, safety, and the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pastor Miguel also organizes and leads pastoral leadership and training seminars in the gospel for hundreds of pastors across the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
DAVE & KRISTI FLINCK
Church Planters in Chile
The Flinck’s arrived in the city of Antofagasta, Chile in May 2011 with the goal to start a reproducing New Testament local church. The city is growing rapidly due to the copper mining industry and there is a tremendous spiritual need. In June 2012, the Lord provided the funds for GMSA to purchase a mission house in Antofagasta to house the Flinck’s and to be used as a meeting place for the growing church plant. Currently, a core group of believers is being formed and leaders trained with the goal of constituting the church.
JIM & CHRISTIE LEE

The Lee’s have been servant leaders of The Navigators ministry at the Air Force Academy in Colorado since 2011.

They believe it is a privilege, challenge, and blessing to be guided and used by the Lord at this strategic place and time for His glory and purposes.
