CONVERGE was birthed in 2014 with a vision of a City-Wide Youth Gathering attempting to unite youth groups from across the city of Pietermaritzburg. With a team of youth leaders from across the city, this vision happened.


The aim is to inspiring the youth to grow Spiritually address the social, moral and cultural decadence within the youth of our city. To assist churches with launching and developing youth ministry. To equip, resource and assist youth leaders.

These events take the form of cluster youth meeting across the city of Pietermartizburg and a CONVERGE connect for youth leaders where we talk about youth related topics, ideas, prayer time and building off relationships with youth leaders which then builds up to the main event once a year.
