“Our faith isn’t complicated. There are three key relationships. The first two: UP with God. IN with fellow believers. Most or at least many churches stop right there. In doing so they become insular and comfortable. You cannot miss the final key relationship that God calls us to, OUT to the world. This is the giving part of who we are. Let’s make sure we have the balance right and we are healthy faith filled believers ‘going and giving’ like we are commanded.”

- Carl Mutzelburg





    We believe that Catalyst must move from accumulating members, to sending people. Jesus had a plan for mission; that He would see his Kingdom come -through his church. Catalyst planting churches - that plant churches.
