Who is Catalyst for?
aimed at people who have a burning desire for their lives to matter for God, regardless of age and circumstances;
suited for those who are completing their secondary education and seeking to get clarity about what a life of significance for God looks like;
designed to equip, empower and deploy disciple-makers;
grounded in the teachings of Jesus on Kingdom, Spirit, Community and Mission and is embedded within the unique calling of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
It begins with a week in the wilderness where Jesus began his ministry and laid down the foundations of discipleship; you will encounter him in a fresh way, rediscover yourself, embrace your gift-based missional calling and experience purposeful community.
Then we regroup on the campus at Avondale University for immersive, experiential, communal, missional learning and community engagement.
