What is different about this year’s event?
Catalyst a new kind of DNOW. For DNOW in previous years, Bellevue has partnered with different organizations such as the Lift Tour, Student Life Tour, etc to bring in production, personalities, and theme. This year we have chosen to create this event specifically for our students. We believe the Lord is calling us to create a new name for the event. Catalyst. Our prayer is to equip and inspire this generation of student to be a catalyst for spiritual awakening in Memphis and beyond. We believe by using our own resources, we have the freedom to pick a relevant, individualized theme and those who come and pour into to our students.  It also gives us the freedom to set our own schedule and add intentional discipleship moments into the event. We are excited to introduce Breakout Sessions to this year’s event, which you can learn more about below. 
what are breakout sessions?
Our students will have the opportunity to pick two different breakout sessions to attend. We have partnered with some of the best communicators who are passionate about their topics to lead our students in a deeper discussion. These breakout sessions are also intended to equip our students with the tools necessary to be a catalyst for spiritual awakening in their world. 
Where will my student be staying?
Your student will be hosted in homes of Bellevue members with a group of students the same age and gender. Each Catalyst Leader and Home Hosts are vetted and background checked in order to insure a safe environment for each student. To find out exactly where your student will be staying, contact their Bellevue Life Group Leader. If you do not have a Life Group Leader, call our Next Gen office at 901-347-5690. Our Catalyst Leaders will send emails directly to parents with all the details in the weeks leading up to Catalyst.
What does the cost include?
Your registration includes admission into each large group session and each breakout session, a Catalyst t-shirt and notebook, housing for the weekend, and all the fun! Students will be given all meals through Catalyst but Saturday night dinner. Please ensure your student has money for a Saturday night meal with their group.  Registration Fees: $60 before February 9 | $80 February 9 – 21
