So here’s the deal. I have a passion to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ transform me, my family, our church, our city and the ends of the earth. This can only be done by Christ. No amount of anything I do will bring about this kind of change. The simple gospel that we see in 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. It is Christ alone that is in the process of making us new creations. With this in mind I desire to connect with other like minded folks. Verge 2012 is such a gathering of people. People united around the Gospel. Learning to live it in community and on mission in this broken world. I would encourage you to check out Verge Network and Verge 2012.
