Although RockPoint Church is an autonimous nondenominatoinal local church, we are affiliated with the following denominations/networks. Through these ministry partnerships we're able to do more than we could ever do alone! We are proud to be part of those who are doing the very best work in missional church planting, Christian education, bilingual and cross-cultural ministry, and global gospel work!
Converge Worldwide is a movement of churches working together to start and strengthen transformational churches worldwide. As a region of Converge Worldwide, Converge Southwest was made a tremendous contribution to the healthy and successful start of RockPoint Church! Converge helps assess and fund new church planters, as well as provide coaching through the early stages of the church plant process. Matt & Sharon Jeffreys attended the Converge Assessment Center in Minnepolis in 2013, prior to moving to the San Antonio area to start RockPoint Church. The assessment process helps determine whether a potential couple has the temperment, gifting, and marital health to effectively start a new church. Due largely to the rigurous assessment process and ongoing coaching, Converge church plants have an 89% success rate, much higher than the national average!
