Checkout Chris talking about the collective with WAMC here.
Let's face it: for the undeniably remarkable 2,000 year history of the institutional church, Jesus seemed to prefer being out in the world.
He was always on the move -- in unforeseen encounters, unexpected conversations, unquestionably holy moments that may not have happened in the Temple.
Respecting the wisdom of Jesus's less than institutional style, Clearstory Collective is a loose confederation of ministries that tend toward the spontaneous, worldly settings of first century Palestine. Because, claustrophobic or not, Jesus clearly loved adventure. Our hope is, so do you.
In the end, Clearstory Collective isn't new. When all is said and done, it's ancient.
