Catalysts learn by doing with a mentor.
Creative, Evangelism, Worship, and Children's Catalysts have many opportunities to experience the power of cooperative mission and ministry to become future leaders, today.
A Catalyst is a student or young adult (ages 18-23) who feels a call to ministry, a desire to grow in ministry skills, and an interest to be in community with other like-minded people. Our commitment is to invest in, mentor, and help Catalysts experience the power of cooperative mission and ministry.
Catalysts will work 15 hours per week remotely (with exceptions) under SCBC staff in the areas of evangelism, creative, missions, church planting, children’s ministry, worship, youth ministry, etc. Catalysts must be passionate about serving Jesus and the church.
A total of $1,800.00 for twelve weeks. This will be paid semi-monthly over the twelve weeks.

What do previous Catalysts classes have to say?
The Catalyst program definitely helped with knowing where I was going in my ministry. Specifically, I’ve learned some things over the summer through the program that have given me a new vigor for what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my life.
The best part was just getting to do the work. It’s about observing and painting the true story of what God’s doing. My favorite part was capturing those small moments that make a big impact. If we weren’t there to capture it, then it might go unnoticed. It’s important that we share with our fellow believers in our family and our body, that God is moving.
The Catalyst program prepared me to understand ministry a little bit better and how to get out, seek others, and be intentional with the word through speaking to others. It’s connecting me better to the community that I live in so that I can understand them and where they come from and how to minister to them better.
