At Converge, we believe everyone has a calling; following the crowd will not bring transformation, but a personalized missions project is the best way to discover your purpose.
Converge Interns, hosts, and donors have started businesses and planted churches; established an HIV/AIDS counseling clinic and working pharmacy in slums; installed water pumps and storage facilities; created therapy routines for disabled children in orphanages and curricula for schools; taught forgiveness educations to youth in the Middle East; and much more…
Converge is for you!
Students – If you’re between 18 and 28, and have at least one cross-cultural experience, Converge internships are where you can really make a difference.
* And YWAM’s Discipleship Training School is NOT required *
YWAMers – If you have done the DTS, Converge is an excellent next step on your spiritual path. (YWAM Leaders are using Converge to connect their students to excellent field assignments too!)
Missions Project Leaders – If you seek prequalified people for your business, nonprofit, or church project, you can Create an Internship in just a few minutes. We’ve made Converge for you too.
Student Ministry Leaders – If you are looking for great next level discipleship opportunities, Converge will equip students with leadership skills to make a difference.
Church Leaders and Donors – If you are willing to encourage future leaders to dedicate their careers to the service of Jesus Christ and the Great Commission, Converge requires every student participant to be sent by, and to choose a mentor from, their home fellowship who will encourage them to practice growing in their identity and skills as a servant of Jesus Christ.
DON'T FOLLOW THE CROWDMake a Difference.
Converge connects you with projects and people who share your passion for Jesus Christ. Converge brings together emerging leaders with mentors from their own communities. The next wave of missions is a convergence of short term with long term missions. To truly disciple all nations through every sphere of influence there must be a convergence of the sacred calling with the secular career.
We connect students to missional internships for Christ and for His kingdom.

I’m John Henry, director of YWAM Converge. My wife, Mary, and an extraordinary team of volunteers helped me develop and design Converge, an internship creation, administration, and online training platform. Converge helps Christian leaders create an internship program for their organizations and find qualified interns passionate to learn how to make a difference for Christ and for the people your NGO, church or business serves. If you’re a friend of YWAM and you’re ready to host interns, you can start an internship program for your organization in minutes.
