Where is The Devoted Collective based?
The Devoted Collective is run out of Auckland, New Zealand, but our team is spread across New Zealand, Canada, the United States, and even as far as Norway!
Are you affiliated with a particular denomination?
The Devoted Collective is a non-denominational ministry. You can read our Statement of Belief here.
Where do you ship to?
Our products ship worldwide. If you are outside of New Zealand, you are welcome to purchase through our website and our distributor will ship direct to your location, but you may find it quicker and more cost-efficient to purchase through Amazon. On our product pages you’ll find direct links to Amazon so you can compare shipping costs. If you wish to purchase through our store and your location is not showing as available, please contact us for a customised quote.
Why do I have to pre-order my items?
We are a small faith-based business and at this time print our stock to order. We purchase a small quantity of stock over and above our pre-orders, but if you don’t want to miss out on an item, we highly recommend you order during our pre-order period.
What currency is your pricing in?
Our pricing is in NZD. If you are based outside of New Zealand, the pricing is typically less in your own currency.
How often do your reading plans run?
We offer a reading plan every quarter. They range in length from 8 to 12 weeks.
What do I need to participate in one?
We have a level of engagement to suit every situation and every budget. We have both print and digital options for all our products, as well as free basic reading plans, allowing you to mix and match our resources in any way you like! For each reading plan, we offer the following:
A customised journal with a comprehensive guide to the book we’re studying
Daily devotionals posted to our blog or available in a beautiful hardcover book with hand-drawn illustrations
Small group discussions and additional resources in The Devoted Community
How much reading is involved?
We know how busy life gets, so we’ve broken each week up into five days of readings, leaving the weekends as ‘grace days’ to catch up if you’ve fallen behind and to allow you to review and reflect on what you’ve been learning with our ‘Week in Review’ journalling pages. The daily Scripture passages can vary in length but are usually a chapter or less, which we encourage you to read using our “Three O’s” journalling method. You also have the option of reading the corresponding devotional with the daily reading to further enrich your time in the Word.
What is the “Three O’s Journalling Method”?
Adapted from a method our founder, Aimee learned from her father, a now-retired pastor, the three ‘O’s’ are Observations, Obstacles, and Outcomes.
After reading the passage, the first step is to engage with the text by observing the themes, characters, context, and principles contained in it. Then you wrestle: What don’t you understand or what is a struggle for you to outwork? Record these, they are currently your obstacles. And finally, you pause to consider the application–the outcome–of the passage in your life. What does it mean for you? What action might you need to take? We don’t want to simply consume information but to allow ourselves to be shaped and transformed into the image of Christ by fully enjoying and digesting the Word.
You’ll find ideas and tips for using this method in our reading plan journals.
If the plan has already started, is it too late to join?
It’s never too late to join us! We welcome you to dive in with us at any point in time. The quickest way to join in is to download the reading plan or the PDF version of the journal. That will get you started with the essentials as you catch up with us in the Community (or if you’re waiting on a book delivery). Whether you choose to start at the beginning or skim to catch up with us, we know you will be blessed by spending this time in the Word with us.
What is The Devoted Community?
The Devoted Community is an intentional discipleship space away from the busyness and noise of social media where you can know and be known. It's the place where we go deeper, cultivating true and biblical community as we pursue a lifestyle of devotion to God.
What does it cost?
There are two membership options. You can sign up for the pay-as-you-go option for $10 per month or get two months FREE when you sign up for the entire year–just $100! If you choose the monthly option you can cancel at any time.
Your investment in The Devoted Community is so much more than a financial transaction. By purchasing a membership, you're supporting small business, promoting Kingdom growth, and ensuring this space stays strong and valuable to you.

But this is about more than perks and groups. It’s about belonging. It’s about a dedicated place away from the busyness and noise of social media. It’s about a place where you are seen and known; a place to gain wisdom and knowledge; a place to explore and embrace; a place to go higher and deeper and wider in God in the company of new friends and chosen family. We hope to meet you there!
