Michael Bartlett - Lead Pastor

From the moment Rae and I graduated from Milligan College in Tennessee, everything we've done has been moving us toward Maryland to plant a church. We couldn't be happier to be in Frederick, starting a church that embodies Jesus's teaching to Love God and Love People. We are excited to love this city and raise a family here, and can't wait to meet you!


Bethany Pennington - Collective Kids Team Leader

After many years of serving the kids and families at our church in Rockville, Chris and I decided it was time to relocate our ministry to Frederick—our home for the past three years. We’re both excited to love and serve this community, but as the Collective Kids Leader, I’m especially excited to have the opportunity to connect with your family and introduce your kids to Jesus. 


Tabi Klein - Next Steps Director

My family and I moved to Frederick 4 years ago because we loved the area but as we began looking for a church, we struggled to find a place where we fit in. After years of searching, we found Collective and we knew this was going to be our Church home. I never imagined that I would work at a church but planning, people, and organization are my strong points and I can't wait to use these skills to help Collective move forward in any way I can!
