Over the next seven years, God would refine, direct, teach, guide and lead Collyde to become an organization that inspires, equips and supports you to live out your calling. God brought together an amazing team of brothers and sisters to launch three entities within Collyde.
Collyde.com is a platform that enables churches and organizations to start “projects” that recruit volunteers, raise funding and mobilize mission trips. Individuals can raise funds for their upcoming mission trip.
Collyde Summit is a gathering of passionate believers in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania area, who love Jesus and are convicted to become world changers.
Inner Circle is a peer group of 12 Senior Pastors that meets with three intentional goals: personal encouragement, missional revolution and leadership development.
