23 Dec Meet the Founders
Convergence Movement is a culmination of all GOD has blessed us to steward the last 18 years of ministry. It is a Convergence of ministry with a focus of harnessing the next generation of Generational Influencers.
These are leaders we have been privileged to pastor, mentor and help as they seek to impact their nation and the nations of the earth. We desire to see GOD finish the original mandate He gave to the founders of many American college campuses, including her Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
We have a strong heart to see healing occur in the African American community, becoming a part of eradicating the dire statistics our communities face. Our marital, health, economic, and educational state is in need of intervention. This can be addressed by the next generation of leaders coming out of HBCUs and American college campuses.
It is our vision to see them give back to their own communities and people group, preparing to influence every area of culture while discipling more leaders in the following generation. We have a passion to empower them to reach college campuses, inner cities and the ends of the earth.
Who Are We?
We are pastors, leaders, HBCU graduates and missionaries, but most importantly we are a married couple with a desire to see holistic health return to our communities. We met one another and graduated from Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia (Corey, B.S. in Business Management; Jade, B.A. in English Arts).
Corey is from Newton, KS and Jade is from Atlanta, GA. We moved to Atlanta, GA in 2006 as inner city missionaries seeking to aid homeless, homosexual boys bound in sex trafficking by adult men. About a year and a half later, we refocused onto the Atlanta University campuses.
By 2007 we commenced a University Church to Morehouse College, Spelman College, and Clark Atlanta University. In 2008, we also aided in beginning a School of Ministry entitled, The Well Discipleship School, primarily consisting of at risk African American young adults and those in major life transition.
This University Church grew into a ministry of students from over seven college campuses in the Atlanta Metro Area. Our influence was also able to expand as we continued to pastor collegiate graduates in various states of the nation.
We are both humbled and honored to serve as ministers of the gospel and missionaries, ready to see a Movement of Generational Influencers harnessed through relational discipleship.
