The Collective


The Collective is for young people ages 18 - 30. Some are in college, some are grads, some are married. Together, we want to grow in Christ, live in community, and serve the world around us. We do this through small groups, The Collective Wednesday Night Gathering, The Collective Worship nights, and events throughout the year. If you want more information on The Collective and how you can get connected, please contact Pastor Justin Carmona.

Collective Worship

Once a month, all groups from The Collective come together for a night of Worship in the Salem Chapel led by Daniel Barkley. We have a message relevant to our college/young adult group. This night is a great way to come together and meet new people.

The Collective Wednesday Night Gathering

Every Wednesday night at 8:00 PM we gather on campus in room B209 for a time of fellowship, prayer, and Bible Study—going through a book of the Bible and discussing how it applies to our lives today.
