We challenge students to live their faith so that God’s character becomes evident in every area of their life. Teaching will include such topics as:
Jesus • Kingdom Impact • Character of God • The Spiritual Journey • Spiritual Disciplines
We encourage students to bring friends, but suggest after visiting twice that they register to be permanently placed in a small group.
Catalyst Retreat • Impact Trips • Summer Camp • Small Groups
Catalyst Small Groups
Catalyst Small Groups are the heart of Catalyst and consist of 8-10 students of the same gender and two Catalyst Leaders. Small groups create a safe place for students to discuss questions about God, while encouraging each other in their daily walks with Christ. To allow for the rapid growth Youth Ministries is experiencing, when students reach 10 per group, sub-groups will be formed for small group discussion time. In this way, students can enjoy being part of their larger group but continue to invite friends and have more chance for meaningful small group discussions.
Retreats are a key strategy to students in grades 7 through 12 embracing the faith and living the faith. When you register for PowerLife and Catalyst; the registration for an annual retreat is included. Retreats are typically a highlight for students, and a unique opportunity to unplug from everyday routine. This helps build relationships in the small group, and fosters more meaningful discussions on regular programming nights.
We are passionate about developing our students’ God given potential, and invite 10-12th grade students to serve as Student Small Group Leaders, (alongside adult leaders) in PowerLife small groups.

A variety of experiences for students to live beyond themselves, impact and be impacted by the places they serve, and be blessed by God working through them. It is our desire that these short term trips turn into a lifelong desire to serve this world the way Christ has served us. 2014 Impact Trip information will be available in late, 2013.
