Jesus Collective is more than a name to us. It's an invitation to like-minded leaders and churches to enter into relationship and community together. It means we’re not a business with customers; we’re a relational network on mission to shape a Kingdom movement that is centred around Jesus.

So ... what’s your next step?

# Partnership

Partnership is the relational backbone of Jesus Collective – the fabric that weaves our network together. Partners are the churches, ministries, and individual leaders that are relationally connected to the Jesus Collective community and engaged in the vision and ongoing mission of the network. They're our jam. Our peeps. Our core.

Partners share Jesus Collective’s vision and centred-set, third way paradigm and participate in the activities of the network together. We’re all different shapes and sizes and come from different places and backgrounds, but what we have in common is our passion and commitment for placing Jesus at the centre of our lives and ministries.

# Kids and Youth Curriculum

We believe children and youth need Jesus just as much as adults do, and as disciples of Jesus they can have a significant Kingdom impact.

This belief has motivated us, in partnership with The Meeting House Church, to produce a comprehensive, multi-year curriculum designed to help disciple kids and youth from infants to junior high, so they will know Jesus and build a spiritual foundation for the rest of their lives.

The curriculum is designed to help kids and youth see how each story in the Bible connects with God’s overarching story, to see where they fit into God’s story, and to discover the role that God has for them as disciples of Jesus. This is done through a variety of lessons, activities, crafts, and videos that are designed to work with groups from 1 - 1000 (or more).

Img Leadership Formation

# Leadership Formation

Relational, Jesus-centred leadership formation is one of the key areas of focus for Jesus Collective. We create learning and development experiences that equip Jesus-centred church leaders for transformational leadership and mission in a post-Christian reality.

We do this through a number of ways, including high quality cohort-based learning and formation, networking, interaction with thought and practice leaders, leadership coaching, and peer-to-peer mentoring.

Learn more about our learning experiences below.

Online Learning Collectives

We’re excited to be piloting a series of Online Learning Collectives – six week, cohort-based formation experiences featuring facilitated small group learning, weekly spiritual practices, live interaction with thought leaders, one-on-one coaching, interactive online forums, and expert-curated learning resources.

Join our next Online Learning Collective Cohort Pilot: Exploring the Jesus-Centred Way in a Polarized World, including live interactions with Bruxy Cavey, Danielle Strickland, Brad Jersak, Greg Boyd, and others.

Workshops: Jesus-centred Leadership

We host accessible, concentrated workshops featuring live input from thought and practice leaders on a regular basis. These workshops are aimed at providing focused learning, training, and development for pastors and ministry leaders on specific topics of interest.

Examples include Jesus-centred teaching and preaching, approaches to small group discipleship, church governance best practices, kids and youth ministry, etc.

Inquire about upcoming workshops

Innovation Labs

We bring together groups of church leaders to share best practices, solve issues, and collaborate for mission and Kingdom impact. Innovation labs can be structured as single or multi-session gatherings, online or in person, and are custom designed to meet the needs of the participants.

Sample topics include envisioning the future of the church post COVID-19, ideas for effectively reaching spiritually curious people, being on mission in a post-Christian context, Jesus-centred discipleship frameworks and approaches, and church governance best practices.

If you’re interested in proposing or joining an innovation lab, let’s talk.

Leadership Coaching: One-on-one or team based

Every pastor needs a pastor, and every leader needs a coach. Jesus Collective partners receive access to individual or team coaching from a trained Jesus Collective coach, providing support for developing ministry plans, navigating internal or missional issues, discerning vision, and supporting spiritual direction and formation for you or your team of leaders.

Coaching is available to Jesus Collective partners. Interested?

# Events & Gatherings

Online and in-person events are an important way for us to develop relationships, sharpen our Jesus-centred theology and paradigm, and be formed and equipped together for ministry.

We host a range of events, gatherings, and learning opportunities in various shapes and formats. Check back regularly to stay in the loop. We look forward to seeing you soon!

# Invest in Jesus Collective

We’re called Jesus Collective for a reason. This is a collaborative network comprising the sacrificial contributions of our Partners and Friends on many levels, including finances.
