About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

What's the bottom line? Catalyst is relentless about "Loving People to Life Change". We believe everyone can take a Next Step to being more like Jesus. It doesn't matter where we begin, we are all on a journey to live like Jesus day by day.

Where we come from

Catalyst was started in 1951by a group of families. Back then, these families imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. Catalyst hosted its first gathering that same year.

Where we're headed

We want to be the best Catalyst for spiritual growth in the greater Wilmington area. Our desire is to grow both our church and our people to make a generational impact in our community.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Catalyst. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the Catalyst family. If you're ready to plan a visit or have any questions, we're here to help.
