Why Kinston

My project-1 (80).jpg

Our target area is a 10 mile radius around Downtown Kinston which includes the city of Kinston and parts of Lenoir County; a population of roughly 50,000 people. According to census data, around half of that population doesn't know Jesus. These 25,000 people are why we are launching Collective.

Messy People

A church for messy people

Life is hard and nobody is perfect. We are all messy, imperfect people who need Jesus. We don't want to hide our problems and hurts because we will never heal or grow if we stay in the dark.

A church of messy people

To make a difference in our city, our families, and our lives, we have to be willing to get messy and do difficult things. We're willing to do anything short of sin to help people find hope in Jesus.

Where We Meet

What You Can Expect On Sunday's

Collective Culture

You can expect a welcoming, friendly, and judgement-free experience from the moment you arrive at Collective. We will have volunteers to help answer any questions and guide you where to go. Dress casual and be yourself.

Collective Kids


Our Collective Kids program will be the best thing about Collective Church. It will be a safe, fun place for kids ages 0-10 to learn about Jesus, play, and make friends. Our best leaders will serve in Collective Kids; all of our volunteers will be vetted and background checked. 

Collective Worship

Our services will last around 50 minutes. We will have engaging worship, church announcements, a relatable sermon, and celebrations. Our goal for our Sunday services will be to help people decide if they want to take their next step in following Jesus.

We will launch services at the UEC Movie Theatre on Sunday's once we build our team to at least 40 volunteers.
