Converge is a weekend experience during the weekend of February 1-3, 2019 for college students and high school juniors and seniors. At Converge, students experience authentic worship, relevant speakers, and opportunities to respond to God. Students and leaders can expect a quality experience with lots of time for building community and having fun. You can also expect to hear clear and relevant teaching from God’s Word, presented in a way that students and leaders alike will be challenged to move to a deeper level of commitment to Jesus Christ.
Speaker: Timothy Ateek
Timothy Ateek (TA), became the Executive Director of Breakaway Ministries in 2016. Prior to moving to College Station, TA served as the Student Ministry Pastor of Austin Ridge Bible Church for five years and as the Executive Director of Vertical Ministries in Waco for four years. TA and his wife, Kat, have three boys Noah (9/09), Andrew (10/11), and Jake (9/17). TA earned a master’s degree from Dallas Theological Seminary and is a proud member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2003. In addition to serving as the primary communicator at Breakaway, TA travels to speak at various churches, camps, and retreats throughout the year. With the lasting impact Breakaway left on him from his time as a student at Texas A&M, TA considers it one of his greatest joys to now serve a new generation of students in the same way he once was served.
Worship: KJ Scriven
Hailing from North Carolina, KJ Scriven’s strong, but sincere message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ demonstrates that he uses all of his heart, soul, and his guitar to invoke worship and righteous living to all generations. Not only is K.J. an artist, but he serves as Music Director at Transformation Church under the leadership of Pastor Derwin Gray. An incredible song writer, as it shines through in his music, KJ is a Grammy-award winning songwriter, which he has 10 song placements on national recording artist projects. Above it all, KJ loves God, his wife Kira, daughter Allyson Grace, family and his Carolina sporting teams. KJ believes that, "music is a tool that prepares the ground of people's hearts so that eventually a seed of truth can be planted. But a prepared ground with no seed planted yields no fruit. So music with without ministry is unproductive and pointless."
