The Convergence Story

In January of 2008, Rich Ratts and his family moved to Missoula and began the process of planting a new faith family. By Fall of 2008 a group had joined in and together they started as a church that would be known as Convergence Ministries. In November of 2008 Bill and Laurie Center joined the team, with Bill as co-pastor in the genesis of this new church alongside Rich. Convergence officially opened her doors on September 2nd 2009. In December, Tim and Bonnie Netzley joined the Convergence family. Today, Bill and Tim pastor our faith family together.

Convergence is a place where people come together. We seek to live like Jesus-with-skin-on as we share with our community, through deed and word, the hope and healing God offers our broken, messed-up world. The vision of Convergence is to see people encounter God in real and tangible ways, experience Community with our faith family, and engage the Culture around us to bring God’s purpose of redemption and restoration to reality.
