This is a question we get quite often. We exist in this town to spread the gospel to those who don’t know it. There are thousands of people in the city of Alpine to reach with the gospel, disciple and then train up to share the good news wherever they are in their lives. Also, there is the university. Depending on the semester Sul Ross enrolls up to 2,000 students who don’t know the gospel and/or are not plugged into a church. With the Sul Ross students we have an incredible opportunity to share the gospel, invest in their lives while they’re here, invest in & train up young leaders for the next generation and then send them off to wherever God leads them.
We love Alpine. We love West Texas. We’re glad God paved the way for Collision Church to exist here!
When we felt the call to come to Alpine and plant a church we knew it would be important to create a community of people that reflects the town itself. We desired to create a community that represents the city of Alpine which means incorporating Sul ross as well as those who call Alpine their permanent home. We want to create something that reflects all generations, socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. That is why we are called Collision Church; a collision is where two or more things come together or collide. We want to be a gospel-centered, disciple-making community who truly reflects our city.
