Program: Bible Studies

At Collide, we believe that God uses every day women to do amazing things. He meets us exactly where we’re at – in our doubt, our monotonous routines, our pain, our apathy, and our mess – and collides with us in a way that leaves us forever changed. We’ve been amazed as He’s redeemed our brokenness and empowered women in our community and beyond to walk in confidence of their identity as beloved daughters.

We’d love to introduce you to one of those women, Missy, and share a piece of her story of colliding with Jesus.

Both Collide Bible studies came to me during a difficult time in my life, when I was dealing with financial hardship, mental health concerns, and questions about God and faith. I went through these studies and found that they challenged me, grew me, and gave me hope. I discovered stories from other women I could relate to, and in addition found community while participating in the study group. The Collide Bible studies helped me grow in my knowledge about the Word, find common ground with other women seeking Jesus, and even led me to finding the right therapist. These studies helped me to move forward in multiple areas of my life, and I am grateful.

One of our favorite things in the world is the diversity of stories we get to hear about how God meets individual people in deeply personal ways. We’d love to hear your story of colliding with Jesus, too! Tell us all about it at
