David & Cindy Collister
David grew up in the Bay Area, where as a youth he helped his parents plant New Church Berkeley (now “Tribe”). A proud UC Berkeley grad (Go Bears!), he got his Master of Divinity and was ordained in 2008. After serving in pastoral positions at NCb, Shanghai Community Fellowship, and Bridges Community Church, David felt a strong sense of calling to start a new church in March 2015. He is deeply convinced that the local church—though imperfect—is God’s vehicle of grace, hope, and life in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:10-12).
Cindy grew up in a non-Christian home and came to know Jesus in high school. She was born in LA, raised in NY, and has lived all around the bay area. After graduating from Yale in 2004, she moved to San Francisco and spent over a decade in strategy/marketing roles at Archstone Consulting, Gap Inc., and consulting with fashion companies on entering the China market. She loves seeking fresh ways we can live out our faith and be a light in work, parenting, and real life here in the Silicon Valley—such that we might bring glory to God in all we do (Matthew 5:16).
