We need young adults who are catalysts. A catalyst increases the rate of a chemical reaction without itself undergoing any permanent chemical change. In a spiritual sense, this is what young adults need to be in their everyday lives. They should not conform to the ways of the world but rather create a reaction for Christ in the world by remaining firm in their faith (Colossians 2:6-10).
Statistics tell us that in the five years following high school graduation, 65% to 80% of Christian youth group kids are no longer connected with a local church. Young adults seek relationships and fellowship, but without involvement in a community centered on Christ, their relationship with the Lord erodes as the world’s influence increases.
Catalyst is a Young Adults Ministry where men and women aged eighteen to late twenties can find meaningful relationships and the Christian fellowship they desire. Catalyst is a community that goes against the world’s expectations. Its light shines brightly before men so that the world may know and glorify our Father in Heaven (Matthew 5:16).
Our vision is that through the teaching of the Word of God we will help young adults grow closer to Jesus, increase their faith in the Lord, and see them become godly men and women filled with the Spirit who are sent out to be leaders that demonstrate our church’s four pillars of the Word, Worship, Withness, and Witness in their everyday lives.
6 Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him,7 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. 8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.
