An advocate and champion for movements of gospel-centered Missional Communities, Verge Network exists for church leaders, students, entrepreneurs, artists, urban innovators, business leaders, community development specialists, non-profit leaders, church planters and everyday leaders – anyone pursuing the mission of God, in community, whatever the context, for the sake of the Gospel. Verge leaders and churches are engaged in the mission of God, centered around the gospel, in community, and understand the value of staying current on issues surrounding the mission of God. Verge Network has a passionate and engaged audience of leaders who want to see the Gospel change them, change their communities, change the neighbors and change the world. Verge Conference was launched in 2010 as a gathering for people engaged in the mission of God with the gospel in their every day context. Our first year we sold out three weeks in advance with more than 2,000 attendees and nearly 3,000 people from 11 countries engaged online via livestream. The conference prompted Verge Network which champions movements of gospel-centered missional communities and missional leaders by offering timely and topical information, video, interviews, articles and on-going dialogue about living on mission, in community, centered around the gospel. In 2011 Verge partnered with Exponential, the largest church planting conference in the U.S., to equip 4000+ leaders to learn what it means to live out the gospel on mission in community. In 2012, Verge was back in Austin and the theme was For The Gospel, For The City, For The Nations. Around 2000 people gathered to learn from leaders like David Platt, Matt Carter, Jo Saxton, Dr. John Perkins, Propaganda, Alan Hirsch, Mike Breen, Hugh Halter, Neil Cole and many more. Verge 2012 was not just in Austin, though. Through livestream, the conference had almost 1000 multi-sites in 49 countries with nearly 30,000 people participating worldwide. It was then that we realized that Verge was now a global phenomenon. On March 1-2, 2013 we gathered to be challenged to make and multiply disciples. The theme was Disciple Making, and it was incredible to see over 30,000 people from all over the world join us via Webcast! Verge is for everyday people and leaders who are pursuing the mission of God with the gospel in their context. Verge leaders and churches are engaged in the mission of God, centered around the gospel, in community, and understand the value of staying connected. Copyright © 2014 Verge Network.
