The word "collective," in its adjective form, speaks of something that is shared or done by all members of a group.
In light of how the church is described in the New Testament, the name Collective Church is a little redundant. We're totally okay with that and maybe it's even intentional.
The church is not a "place where" but a "people who." The Bible describes the church as being members of one body whose head is Christ. Each of us has a place and a role to play so that the body can be healthy and function as it should, carrying out its purpose in the world.
MISSION & VISION
We are a community on the Westside following Jesus and seeking to reach, teach, and equip others to do the same. Our desire is to become a healthy and multiplying expression of Christ's church in each of the 23 neighborhoods that make up the Westside of Los Angeles.
According to the LA Times, the Westside of Los Angeles is populated by roughly 530,000 people living in 23 neighborhoods across 100 square miles. If the Westside was a city, it would be the 5th largest in the state. This is the specific region where we intend to focus our direct efforts.
In Los Angeles, the Westside is geographically and culturally distinct. We consider it unique in its potential to serve as a strategic platform for kingdom advancement throughout the rest of LA and beyond.
