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.
