Why is the church called "Collective Church"?

There are a few passages in the Bible that describe the group of people who followed Jesus (e.g., Matthew 10:2-4; Luke 8:1-3). In those passages, we see that there were lots of different kinds of people--people who had very strong political opinions and other people who disagreed with those people; people who were wealthy and people who were poor; people who grew up in very specific religious environments, and other people whose upbringings looked totally different than everybody else's. In other words, each of the people who followed Jesus had his or her own story, and yet they were all part of a larger story together. They were a collective, allowing that which connects them to transcend that which might have divided them. As such, we acknowledge that everyone who comes to our church has a story that is theirs, and we want to honor those stories. And yet, each of our diverse stories has led us to the same place in one way or another. We acknowledge the different paths that have led us to the same space and time. As such, our name reminds us of all of the different stories in the room with us.
