Collegiate Church Planting Collaborative

What We’re Doing

It’s been an honor to bi-annually host the Collegiate Church Planting Collaborative. This year we have the privilege of hosting over 120 collegiate leaders from across the nation.

Is the college campus the most strategic mission field in the world? Brian Frye facilitates a discussion between Steve Lutz, head pastor of Calvary Baptist Church – Penn State, and our senior pastor, Ed Kang.


What is a Collaborative?

Collaborative is a gathering of current and future innovators working to strategically plant churches in university contexts. This biannual event brings multiplying leaders together to examine ministry methods, share best practices, learn from other leaders, build relationships among key influencers and tackle the most strategic questions of accelerating the Gospel through university settings.

During the three days of Collaborative, invitees move in and out of large group and small group (Cohort) sessions, participate in breakouts, engage in plenary sessions and share family meals. Every participant has the opportunity to hear from field experts as well as to contribute their knowledge and experience to the collective learning of the Collaborative.

By Collaborative’s end, all attendees will walk away with 1) a deeper understanding of their own system, 2) a broader view of effective ministry in university settings and 3) an actionable, team-generated plan with next steps to accelerate planting through their church.

Valentine's Day of Compassion

Valentine's Day of Compassion

Back in 2006, a few sisters from Gracepoint Berkeley recognized that the mushy, romantic holiday depicted in TV and movies can actually lead to feelings of loneliness and depression in many people. They weren’t alone—studies have shown that suicides and calls to suicide hotlines increase around Valentine’s Day.

These sisters had a counter-cultural idea: Instead of getting caught up in all of the romantic stuff that surrounds Valentine’s Day, they'd go out and show Christ's love to those our society often forgets. With that, Valentine’s Day of Compassion was born and since then has grown into one of the highlights of our year.

This Valentine’s Day at Gracepoint Berkeley, we’re aiming to visit over 50 different locations to spend time with the residents, sing together, and share a message of hope from the Bible. Join us as we fan out across the country to serve convalescent homes, rehab centers, and shelters!

Normally, I really hate Valentine’s Day. I had spent too much of my time as a youth in my college years feeling sorry for myself that I didn’t have a ‘valentine’. But when I volunteered at Valentine’s Day of Compassion, one person told me this was the best Valentine’s Day she ever had. I told her, actually, this was the best one for me too.

GET STARTED

Easier to start than you think. We have some helpful tips and many more resources.

Good Friday Service

Join us as we pause and reflect on God's greatest gift of love to us, Jesus' death on the Cross. 

But he was pierced for our transgressions;
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
    and with his wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
    we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. [Isaiah 53:5-6]
