our story...

Catalyst began in the fall of 2014 with one simple desire...to have a church where it's ok to not be ok.  At Catalyst we believe every one of us has two great desires: to be loved and to be needed. We also recognized that many young people are leaving the church at a staggering rate and not returning in large numbers.  So we set out to take a never changing story to an ever changing world.

We started out at Gadsden Convention Hall and stayed there for approximately 6 months.  We then moved to the Pitman Theatre in downtown Gadsden, AL.  After two and a half short years, we have a permanent home! God is opening many doors and opportunities to better serve our community as a result.  While we're grateful for the growth and location, we're far more pumped about the life change and growth we see every week.

In 2020, we're expanding our Mission and Outreach Opportunities, trying a new approach with our Community Groups, and expecting God to open doors for a second campus. Our purpose is simple.  To make Jesus famous one life at a time.  (Matthew 9:27-31)
