REFRESH in the Desert 2017

In 2017, Converge Southwest once again offered a rare opportunity for Lead Pastors and their wives to be spiritually and physically refreshed in a safe and nurturing environment. REFRESH included social time, date night, a dinner celebration, guest speakers and live worship. As guests of CSW/Bruce and Kym Sumner, our LEAD Pastor couples enjoyed a two-night stay at the gorgeous Renaissance Indian Wells, CA.

There were only two scheduled events during REFRESH. A dinner celebration on Friday evening - a time to receive nourishment, encouragement, and the opportunity to offer praise to our Lord for what He is doing in and through our member churches, and a GraceNet meeting led by Kym Sumner for the LEAD Pastors' wives. The rest of the time, couples were encouraged to enjoy the outstanding amenities offered at the Renaissance.

This year we welcomed comedian Michael Jr. as our guest speaker on Friday evening. 

Michael Jr. is making the world smile again…

No matter where you experience his humor, on-stage, on-line, or one-on-one, you get the same Michael Jr. with humor that creates waves of laughter. Whether as an actor in the #1 box office hit War Room or appearing on The Tonight ShowJimmy Kimmel Live! or at a large church event, Michael Jr. shows up and delivers the funny!
