Five Years of Ministry

In February of 2008, Erin and I sat in the living room talking about how lonely our early 20′s felt. Not fitting in and being young has never been a fun place to be. I hope I’m correct in assuming that we’ve all experienced this at some point in our lives. It was here that God started giving us the vision for what Collision is and will become. A community that loves people, is pursuing the holiness of God and is transparent of the broken lives that we live.

As we come into our 5 year anniversary as a ministry, I can tell you that I’m more excited about where God is taking us over where we’ve been. During these years we’ve come together during times of loss, we’ve shared some incredible memories and we’ve seen God’s call in the lives of college and twentysomethings. Instead of resting on what we’ve done right, we’re moving forward with what we can do better.

God is building a community of servant leaders that understand sitting inside the 4 walls of the church is not a Biblical concept. We’re excited to see the passion in the lives of people as they share those “God moments” that happen in everyday life. This ministry isn’t perfect because it’s run by and for broken people. As we celebrate this year, we’re asking that you would see the vision that God has birthed in this ministry.

It’s a joy and a privilege that Erin, myself and our family get to serve you through this ministry. We hope that you’ll come out as we celebrate Collision’s 5 year anniversary on Thursday March 28, 2013. We’ll come together as a community for a night of worship, teaching and dinner with the Collision Community. Stay tuned during this month as we announce something new each Thursday night leading up to this special service.
