In February, over 150 collegiate ministers from across the nation (and Canada!) gathered at our main campus in Alameda, CA for the 2019 Collegiate Church Planting Collaborative (CCPC). CCPC is organized by the North American Mission Board’s Send Network and consists of 3 packed days of collaboration and training to accelerate disciple making and church planting in university contexts.
We’ve hosted the event at our church every other year since 2013. Our members hosted visiting ministers in their homes and loved on them with our Gracepoint-style potluck.
Back in 2013, we didn’t know many others who were planting collegiate churches, or even many others who were focused on college campuses. It's been a tremendous blessing to meet others who share our heart for college students and are striving to live out the Great Commission on college campuses. We've found friends, co-laborers, and fellow Kingdom workers to encourage, teach, challenge, and inspire us to give more to Gospel work.
