Dan & Susie have been in pastoral ministry for twenty years, fourteen of which were in the United States. The early days of working with Bryn Jones [CMI] gave them their training and passion for sharing the grace of God and making disciples. Dan and Susie served in church leadership in St. Louis Missouri, Memphis Tennessee, and more recently they planted in Houston, Texas .
In 2014 they were sent to the UK in response to God's call to minister here. Susie was born and grew up in Bath. Her parents, Peter & Barbie Reynolds, were part of the work of God here for many years in connection with Bryn and Keri Jones. Their relationships are very wide spread, and their close friendship are with Newfrontiers, Acts29 and Ministries Without Borders.
The Gospel Collective Church is now training leaders of gospel communities to make disciples with the vision of giving opportunity for every person in each of the sixteen districts of Bath to hear and respond to the good news of God's love and mercy.
We have three core values that shape all that we do, all that we are, and guides
the use of our energies and resources.
The gospel is the message of how all things are made new through Jesus. The gospel gives shape to the church, strength for family and renewal in culture. It is the power of God that grows and transforms us. To herald the news that men & women are reconciled to God through Jesus, deserves every passionate endeavour and the upmost dedicated training for the people of God.
The mission of God is beautifully displayed in the sending of the Son of God into the world to
passionately pursue an undeserving people for the radical display of Gods gracious love in
redeeming them for Himself. Because we know who Jesus is and what he has done, we now
know who we are and what we are to do. Therefore we are moved to embark on this discipleship mission with God and unwaveringly dedicated to strategic church planting.
The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are the original family who work together for the
redemption of mankind. We, then, are shaped by the gospel, into gospel communities. We are family, with spiritual mothers and fathers, raising spiritual sons and daughters to be
mature. We share life with one another, we are on mission together, and enjoy life together
for Gods glory.
Here are our essential and strategic distinctives that we are very passionate about.
We believe in gospel centrality in all of life. The good news of God's powerful goodness and
kindness expressed in the person and work of Jesus informs all we do.
Rom. 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes
God's way of sharing his grace with others is by using people. Its not a formula or' system, but it's how God does it. So we help others grow as disciples, and teach them to make
disciples who make more disciples.
Matt. 28:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...'
The church is by nature a missional movement, theres always a pointy bit where we are
expanding and advancing into new frontiers.
Luke 2:49 I must be about my Father's business
We must have a radical dependency on the leading of the Holy Spirit who is altogether sufficient to lead, teach and guide us into all truth.
Rom. 8:14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God
