Harbor Church launched as a CRM church plant May 2016 in the Berkeley neighborhood of north Denver. Having navigated the waters as a church plant since March 2015 initially, Harbor Church partnered with Converge recognizing their need for access to resources, coaching and a larger support network. Converge came highly recommended. Harbor meets in the historic Oriental Theater where any number of events happen throughout the week. On Sunday mornings, their team transforms the space into a wonderful worship environment. Already, Harbor Church sends international teams to serve at least three times a year. Pastor Joel Thomas and the church are also passionate about partnering with local organizations and utilize a Community Engagement Director to link up with local businesses and non-profits. The most pressing needs are financial sustainability, (currently facing an $80,000 annual deficit), people growth and engagement in small groups. Harbor is looking to Converge for clear direction and support in setting up online giving platforms, a “best practices” guide for developing a strong CMS, consistent check-in and coaching from leadership and LEAD teams.
