Breakouts

Breakouts are designed to meet you exactly where you are. Below, you'll find descriptions of each breakout group offered at Catalyst this year.
Pick out your top two breakouts!

How to Study the Bible
Hayden and Laura Simons
W125
God is orderly. As a Christian, the Bible is the foundation on which we build our lives. It is active and relevant for every situation that we face! If you are looking for a breakout session that will teach you how to study the Bible in a real, interactive way, this will be a great help to you!
Just Ask Him 
Garrett Whitehorn
W213
God is caring. Do you struggle to know how to pray, what to pray, and if it even works? In this breakout session, you will be encouraged by different ways of making prayer interactive, what God's Word says about prayer, and how it changes your life.
You Are Not Your Thoughts
Leslie Hollowell
W211
God is sound-minded. Our brains are a constant wheel of information, ideas, hopes, fears, and worries! When we don't know how to control our thoughts, how should we respond? Learn what God's Word says about controlling our thoughts.
Engaging in Missions Now
Ross and Christy McGregor
W217
God is strategic. Are you passionate about missions and want to know how to effectively share the Gospel? In this breakout session, you will learn how to share the Gospel with others and seek out opportunities to serve during your current season.
Hot Topics Panel—Guys
Pastor Steve Gaines, Michael Pritchard, Jay Stephenson and Dakota Tucker
F241 and F243
God is clear. Take this opportunity to ask our guest speakers questions about whatever you would like! You will be encouraged with what God's Word has to say about each of the topics discussed.
Hot Topics Panel—Girls
Donna Gaines, Morgan Flippo, Christy Pritchard, and Grace Wade
F245
God is clear. Take this opportunity to ask our guest speakers questions about whatever you would like! You will be encouraged with what God's Word has to say about each of the topics discussed.
Lord Send Me
Noah Sidhom and Jamie Otto
W207
God is worthy. Do you feel "called to ministry"? How do we even know what that means? If you have felt a tug on your heart to vocational ministry or missions, come to this breakout session! We will dive into what that means and how you can serve the Lord right now!
Is the Bible True?
Rick Jones
F227
God is true. Everyone is set on what truth is, but hardly anyone believes there is absolute truth. Everyone says, "live your truth," until it collides with their own. In a world that values truth, but has no idea how to find it, what can we rely on? This breakout session is all about how we can trust that the Bible is true and how that affects our lives.
Let’s Talk Gen Z
Daniel and Hannah Harris
W141
God is sovereign. It is harder now than ever to live for Christ. Learn practical tools on how to go against the flow of culture to walk towards Christ's design for your life. In this breakout session, Daniel and Hannah Harris, our college pastor and his wife, will share their story—how they have lived and learned in their own walks with God.
Move
Katie Moser
Gym A1 and A2
God is active. Do you need a break from sitting this weekend? Come to this breakout session to get active with our Recreation team! You will have a lot of fun playing games and learning spiritual lessons!
Paint Talk
Kristi Hall
Fellowship Hall Room 1 
God is creative. Do you enjoy painting and being creative? In this breakout session, you will earn how you can glorify God through your art! 
The Leader in You
Jason Pyron
W151
God is intentional. Learning about yourself and your personality is an awesome way to celebrate how the Lord made you! This breakout is all about discovering your personality and what that means for your life and your impact as a leader.
