Theo's Collective Story


I have belonged to Collective Church since its inception, after I had spent almost a year commuting to the Westside from central LA for work, and decided I wanted to move closer to work and join a new church community there.

In the years that have followed, God has blessed me beyond what I asked or hoped for, with a solid community of believers who have helped me remain focused on Jesus despite many trials I went through during that time.

I learned how important it is for a local body of believers to commit to loving one another regardless of circumstances, and how God rewards those who uphold that commitment rather than retreating from it.

In my case, those rewards include deep, abiding relationships that have stood the test of time. Having been served so well, I now look to serve others in the same way, and am confident our faith will continue to grow.
