Catalyst Church Logo



Catalyst Church started with the idea of a place to help spark a change within people looking for something deeper in their lives.

What We Believe

We believe in fellowship, making disciples and being a community of Kingdom workers. We desire everyone around us, from all backgrounds and walks of life, to experience the amazing love of Christ.

God has blessed us all with unique talents and strengths to use for His glory. We strive to reflect the Catalyst mission to spread God’s word and love throughout the communities in which we live, work and play.

From Catalyst Communities to social events to serving opportunities, Catalyst has an abundance of opportunities to make you feel connected and growing in your faith, while furthering God’s Kingdom.

We want each person who walks through the Catalyst doors to experience life-altering spiritual growth. Whether you have never been to church before, or have been walking with Christ as long as you can remember, our goal is to meet you where you are, and help you cultivate a deeper understanding and relationship with Christ.

Interested in Serving?

Let us help connect you to the opportunities available at Catalyst to live out your purpose and serve others. Learn more about our serving teams below.

Catalyst Kids (Infant-6th Grade)
The Catalyst Kids ministry is a wonderful place to get connected and make a difference in a child’s life. If you love to cuddle with babies, “sing” along with preschoolers, or lead a small group of elementary schoolers…we have a place for you.

Student Ministries (7th-12th Grade)
Our very active Youth Student ministry is always looking for leaders with positions ranging from hospitality coordinators, game masters, group leaders and more. Pouring into our kids in 7th grade and higher is a rewarding and fun experience.

The events team works to bring Catalyst to the community and the community to Catalyst. There are plenty of service opportunities for anyone who loves to plan church-wide events or events that bless the Pendleton & Madison County community.

Our Hospitality team is tagged with the amazing opportunity to welcome members and guests into our Catalyst home each and every week. This team consists of individuals who help greet on Sundays as well as the Connections team that works during the week to follow up with guests from the Sunday before.

From playing an instrument to serving on audio/visual and logistics teams, the worship band & worship arts team is an amazing opportunity to use your talents to praise and glorify God, while blessing the church as you lead them to the same place of praise.

The marketing team provides strategic oversight for church-wide marketing and communications as well as oversees the marketing and communication of the church’s brand and message through various media and events.
