A one-day interactive discipleship conference
hosted by the Watermark Equipped Disciple Ministry
Online Registration: $20
Day of Registration: $25
Breakfast, lunch, and snacks included
The theme of Converge 2021 is Bearing Fruit Where You are Planted. Each of us are planted in a field of relationships including family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. As we live out life in the field where we are planted, are we taking the roots of our relationship with Jesus Christ deeper? Are we experiencing the abundant life through fruitful living? Is there room for more growth?
Converge 2021 is designed to be highly interactive on a bedrock of sound teaching and practical application. We will hear messages delivered by Al Miyashita followed by roundtable discussions. Additionally, we will engage in topical table talks centered on the root system which lies beneath the surface of a believer’s life as well as table discussions on components of the fruit system which springs forth from the roots. There can be no fruit system without a healthy root system. More iron-sharpening-iron fellowship happens as we break bread together at breakfast and lunch.
Spanish translation will be provided for our keynote speakers,
and there will be Spanish discussion groups for our Table Talk sessions.

What is Equipped Disciple?
Now in its 19th year at Watermark, Equipped Disciple is a ministry that guides participants through the three parts of the Navigators’ 2:7 curriculum in the context of interactive small groups. This ministry helps to teach and clarify the disciplines that root, deepen, and strengthen a participant’s walk with Christ. Read more at watermark.org/disciple.
Do I need to have taken the Equipped Disciple Class to attend Converge?
Absolutely not! Converge is for disciples and disciple-makers in all walks of life and spiritual growth. If you've wanted to take Equipped Disciple but haven't been able to commit to the 11-week session, then Converge is for you! If you've completed Equipped Disciple courses 1-3 but would like to be further encouraged and equipped, Converge is for you! If you haven't even heard of Equipped Disciple but have a passion for discipleship or a desire to learn more about discipleship, then Converge is for you too!
What is Watermark Community Church?
Watermark is a local expression of the Body of Christ that meets around the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. But we believe that “church” is not a building – it’s a people. Every weekend, we encourage the thousands of people who worship with us to go and be the church in their homes and communities.
Who are the main speakers?
Al Miyashita serves with The Navigators assisting growth in intentional generations of disciplemakers. He served as the city director in New York City prior to his current leadership role. Additionally, he has served two terms on the U.S. Board of Directors for The Navigators. In the marketplace, Al worked at IBM for thirty-one years in various executive and management positions. He is married to Moni with two children and lives in New York City.
Additionally, leaders from Watermark’s Equipped Disciple ministry and leaders from the Navigators discipleship ministry will be leading roundtable discussions and topical table talks on a wide variety of topics centered on bearing fruit where you are planted. Come prepared for a rousing good time!
