Event Overview

The City Collective 2016 gathering in New York City is a chance to bring core Collective members together for a time of prayer, fellowship, encouragement, and hearing what the Lord has been doing in each of our lives, churches, and cities.

The weekend is invitation only, for those that have been part of a Collective cohort.  Our time designed to be informal and relational, giving everyone space to reconnect, enjoy the city, spend time in worship, and be invigorated by our time with each other.  It's also designed to generate vision and seek the Lord about the future of City Collective.

If you haven't had a chance, please register here.  This year, there is no registration fee to attend.
