The Co//aborative is a movement of young people in Central Louisiana, actively pursuing God and seeking to make him known. We are a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church of Alexandria. We believe in the salvation of Jesus Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the believer that enables us to experience abundant life. Through the working of the Holy Spirit we are equipped to proclaim the Gospel with our lives and be unified as one. We exist to connect people deeper with God in a more intimate level, while also connecting more intimately to the people that are around us.

What We Do:
Collaborative Worship Nights: Worship is so much more than just a service! Every Monday night we gather to worship in different ways.
- Full Band Worship Nights
- Acoustic Worship Nights
- Serve Nights
- Fellowship Nights
Collaborative Life Group: Our Sunday morning Bible Study time together before our corporate worship. This takes place at 9AM every Sunday in room S-215.
Calvary Corporate Worship: 9AM & 10:30 in the worship center at 5011 Jackson St. Alexandria, LA.
Collaborate Groups: Meet on or off campus. Louisiana College. Louisiana State University Alexandria. Young Adults.
We have taken a mission initiative as a ministry as we partner more directly with specific organizations. Would you consider partnering with us both prayerfully and financially as we do this?!
Compassion International: We have currently sponsored, as a ministry, one child named Jimmy, from Rwanda, Africa. We would love to, as a community of young people, continue to partner with Jimmy and his community in the sponsorship of him and other children in his community. Reach out about any further questions and if you would like to give, we have set up a Venmo account @collabmissions, where all of the proceeds will be going directly into our Compassion International budgeting.
Central Louisiana Homeless Coalition: There are many people who are less fortunate in our community and we want to be a part of allowing them to know and walk in their value that God places on them. There are several ways we are partnering with this local non-profit organization from serving at their center, connecting homeless locals to the resources there, spending time with the people that come, and more.
Collaborate groups are small groups that meet in a more intimate context where we collaborate the Word of God with real life. This is not just another Bible study group but a community of believers that will challenge, and walk through life together. This semester we will be discussing and walking through different albums on the Move Closer platform and challenging each other to take the next steps in our walk with God.
Louisiana College C-Group: TBD
Louisiana State University C-Group: TBD

Serve With Us!
Serve Team: Our serve team is so vital to our ministry and making sure that what we do can actually happen! These are people who are servant hearted and willing to assist with event set-ups, campus outreaches, food serving, and various other tasks!
Creative Team: Our creative team helps us to express the Gospel and connect with other people through media outlets! We live in a day where the largest medium for communicating to others is through media. This will include serving through photography, graphic design, video, and more.
Missions Team: The heart of the Collaborative is to connect people to God and we believe that we are commissioned by God to reach and serve others. Being a part of this team will include planning creative ways to reach our community, organizing our serve projects, promoting mission trips, and more.
Production Team: Our production team is such a valuable part of our family. As a part of this team, you will help with creating environments for our worship nights, partnering with musicians/speakers for high-quality tech, running sound, lights and more.
Co//aborative House Band
Worship is a huge part of who we are as a ministry. It is an incredible opportunity we have to sing songs of praise and worship together. This band is a collective group of young people who have exceptional musical talent who will be leading the people of our ministry into intimate times of worship with God.
Sign up for the auditions to join the team! We are looking for a wide range of instrumentalists and vocalists. They will take place on Tuesday, August 25th. When you register for the audition, you will be reached out to about scheduling a specific time. If for some reason you can not make any time on August 25th, go ahead and register and make a note of it and we will try to work out another time.
