Converge North Central (formerly the Minnesota Iowa Baptist Conference) is a dynamic network of 248 churches. Our immigrant Swedish roots give us a foundation of 155 years of ministry in the Midwest. Yet our evangelical passion, biblical theology and contemporary worship styles have made our churches an attractive option for families looking for something solid, yet something exciting.
Our outreach is to those who have no church home. Many in Minnesota and Iowa are disillusioned with religion. They have felt the sting of legalism with its impossible demands. Some have seen hypocrisy. Others have had no religious background and therefore see Christianity as irrelevant. The missing element has been healthy relationships with mature believers in Jesus.
