Online and in-person events are an important way for us to forge 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!

# Featured Event

Nov Podcast

Join our live conversation with Dr. Samuel Sarpiya about how we can navigate polarization in our communities with Jesus at the centre.

Masks, vaccine passports, political ideologies — we’re all experiencing the polarization happening in our culture right now within our families, churches, organizations, and workplaces.

Every few hundred years, there’s a cultural moment that emerges where the church has the opportunity to live and share the Jesus-centred life in a fresh way. We believe that moment is now and that this polarity can actually be an opportunity. How can followers of Jesus lean into these polarizing times with humility and confidence? How can we make peace, model unity, and show secular culture the transformational impact that happens when we put Jesus at the centre?

Join us for a visionary and practical conversation with Dr. Samuel Sarpiya. Samuel is a Jesus Collective Partner and Executive Director at the Center for Non-Violence and Conflict Transformation in Rockford, IL, and he’s an expert in transforming conflict and polarization.

How Centering on Jesus Changes Everything

Together, pastors Andy Stanley and Bruxy Cavey share their personal journeys and unpack how the Jesus-centered way changes everything. We explore what it means, how it applies to the important realities of our time, and how placing Jesus at the center transforms us as disciples and the churches we lead.

(Re)centring on Jesus in a Time of Crisis & Opportunity

Join Greg Boyd, Danielle Strickland, and Bruxy Cavey as they explore the importance of keeping Jesus at the centre. Why does it allow us to be hopeful and see this time as an opportunity? How does it inform how we see God and his role amidst crisis? How do we care for ourselves and our communities well? And if we’re truly focused on following Jesus, what will our churches be known for?

This conversation was recorded during our UNITE | ONLINE gathering.

# Regional Gatherings

Regional gatherings are an opportunity to learn more about Jesus Collective, cast vision together, meet new like-minded peers, and network relationally with people in your neck of the woods. They are informal, typically one-day events that also feature a focused development session with a thought leader centred on themes and topics of interest to this movement.

These gatherings are currently on hold until we’re able to meet in person again, so stay tuned for updates and feel free to reach out to us with any questions

We’ve held events in cities in Canada, the US, and the UK. Check back regularly to see an updated listing, and give us a shout if you’d like to request a gathering in your area.

# Innovation Labs

We host online and in-person innovation labs that bring together like-minded church partners within our network to collaborate around current opportunities and challenges facing our churches and communities. These include focused, facilitated forums, best practice sharing, cross pollination of innovative Kingdom ideas, and mutual equipping and encouragement.

Innovation labs can be one or more sessions 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, we’d love to talk.
