The Collective Central Team is made up of three members of staff from Cornerstone Collective who work together to allow the Collective as an organisation to function. This team is not a higher authority than the elders of the individual churches; rather the team acts as a catalyst and a directional lead for strengthening and growth in church leadership, supporting churches within the three areas of missional communion.
The Collective Central Team sets direction for the organisation, focusing on partnering with the churches relationally, missionally and operationally, enabling churches to function effectively in their local context, whatever their size and financial capacity.
