Adam Ragsdale

Lead Pastor

It’s been a pretty incredible ride for the Ragsdale’s to start Catalyst Community Church! Our Partnership Class is the best way to get the whole story, but here’s little about our Pastor to give you a little insight into his life and ministry.


Growing Up

Pastor Adam grew up in a small town in the Appalachian foothills of Alabama. He met his ridiculously beautiful wife Allison there and tricked her into marrying him. That was 20  years ago. They have two daughters together: Kelsie and Maggie Beth. After serving in Student ministry and traveling to speak and perform for many years, he had the chance to be a part of two incredible church plants with Lifepoint Church. All of the lessons from those opportunities birthed the concept of Catalyst in Rags’ (as he’s known) heart.


Working Hard

Adam founded Catalyst with a desire to do church differently. Adam loves his Catalyst family and the community God has placed him in.  God has done some amazing things the first 2 years of Catalyst but Adam believes God hasn’t even gotten warmed up yet! As God continues to grow Catalyst, Pastor Adam’s prayer is that God gets all the credit and that Jesus is made famous one life at a time.

Adam also has a non-profit for Veterans he founded called Valor’s Voice that he’s extremely passionate about.  You can check that out by visiting www.valorsvoice.com.
