Jesus called his disciples his friends. They were family. Then Jesus said that he is sending them in the same way the Father sent him. The Gospel Collective aim has nothing to do with 'seating capacity' but everything to do with 'sending capacity. We invite people into a living relationship with Jesus. As we make disciples, we then teach them about Jesus. We find people naturally form into gospel-centred communities of faith. Jesus continues to grow his church just like he promised. Now that we are friends of Jesus, we have discovered that he has brought us into his family and called us to be on mission together. It's only natural that we are now banding together to make more disciples and multiply into more gospel communities.
