Partnership is the relational backbone of Jesus Collective, and we’re so excited to welcome you on board! You’re joining a growing community of like-minded churches and leaders who share a vision to unite, equip, and amplify a Jesus-centred movement. Together. We’re so glad you’re here!

Below you’ll find some important (and fun) info for new Partners, a few next steps for you to take as you onboard into Jesus Collective Partnership, and some upcoming things on the horizon.

Yes there are some things for you to do, but we promise they’re all good. 😉

If you have any questions at all about anything you see here, don’t hesitate at all to contact us directly.

We’re looking forward to journeying together as a relational collective centred on Jesus!

Peace,
Matt Miles
Executive Director, Jesus Collective

# Welcoming You

As a relational network, we want to be intentional about celebrating new Partners, including you! We would like to take a few minutes at an upcoming Partner Hub meeting to affirm and welcome you and your church into Partnership, invite you to share a bit of your story, and pray for you and your church. Our administrative assistant, Jenn Kuntz, will be in touch to coordinate a date that works well.

We would also like to offer a warm welcome to your leadership team and church if that is something that would be well received. This could take the form of a special separate virtual gathering to pray and celebrate with your team, having someone from Jesus Collective join one of your services or team meetings to share a welcome, or us sending a simple personalized welcome video that you can share with your team or church. Please let Jenn Kuntz know how we can warmly welcome your church in a way that speaks your love language!

# Partner Covenant

The Partner Covenant represents the relational commitments we are each making in good faith as a Jesus-centred collective.

As a registered charitable entity, we also want and need to set up our affairs properly and lay out some standard and straightforward policies and expectations.

All Partners are asked to review the Jesus Collective affiliation policies and sign the affiliation agreement, both of which are linked to at the end of the Partner Covenant (which you can access by clicking the button below).

Fun fact: We use the word Partner because it best represents the spirit of us embracing and entering into a shared vision together, and how we partner with God in his mission for us as a Collective. But just to be clear, we’re not using that term in the legal’ sense of the word. That’s why you see the words affiliate’ and affiliation’ used in the policies and agreement.

# Financial Contributions

Hey, money doesn’t have to be awkward. Consistent with our collective mindset, we believe the best way to sustainably fund the work of Jesus Collective, create a sense of shared ownership, and avoid potentially unhealthy power dynamics, is for all Partners to make modest contributions to a pool of financial resources that support the network on an ongoing basis.

We want to be both clear and flexible when it comes to finances. We would be happy to talk about the best timing for your Partner financial contributions in light of your budgeting cycle. And we don’t want finances to be a barrier to relationships with the right Partners, so let’s talk if you have questions.

The Details

  • Individual partners contribute a minimum annual contribution of $850 CAD per year
  • Partnership contributions for our first round of partners (that’s you) will commence on January 22021.
