CATALYST is a movement of youth in and around Gothenburg that are exactly what we have named ourselves –

“an event or group of people who spark a change.”

Mission:   Create Irresistible Environments where youth can Meet, Follow, and Love Jesus.
Vision:      Our goal is to create environments where students are encouraged to make wise choices, positively influence their friends, and experience personal ministry through serving others.
Strategy:   Create a large group gathering where each and every youth is warmly welcomed, provide practical teaching, and move students to life groups that are building and reproducing Jesus followers and leaders.


– Sunday nights at 6:30 (doors open at 6:00)
– Wednesday nights at 7:00 (in-home SH groups)


– Our large group gathering meets at The Family Life Center (1510 8th St, Gothenburg, NE 69138)
– We have two small groups that meet midweek.  One in Brady, and one in Gothenburg.  Contact us for specific locations.
