Our Structure

Collective Church Kinston NC

Collective Church is an independent, autonomous Christian church that is supported by church planting organizations and individual churches, not a denomination. We are led by a board of directors made of up pastors, elders, and staff from our partners churches and planting organizations.

Our Mission

A church for messy people.

Jesus himself was known to be a friend of people who were considered outcasts or misfits by society's standards. He associated with tax collectors, prostitutes, and others who were marginalized, teaching that his message of hope and the forgiveness of sins was for everyone while calling people to the higher purpose of expanding the Kingdom of God. With this in mind, we desire to be a church of messy people seeking growth and living for the Kingdom of God. In this way, we will see mess become a message as Jesus transforms us and our lives become living testimonies.
