Our prayer is to equip and inspire this generation of students to be a catalyst for spiritual awakening in Memphis and beyond.

Breakout sessions

Students will have the opportunity to choose 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.

Goodies Included

Your registration includes admission into each large group session, two breakout sessions, a T-shirt, lunch on Saturday, and a whole lot of fun.

Different is good

This year’s Catalyst will be a bit different. To keep our students and staff as safe as possible, all Catalyst events will be hosted entirely on-campus. There will be no in-home groups or overnight stay.
