What we do

Worship Catalyst is a ministry that works almost exclusively with church planters. We currently have 3 avenues of ministry focus:

1. Hub Cities: In 15 regions across North America, Worship Catalyst has fully developed "Hubs." These hubs help new churches by training those who are currently serving while working to add and build up stronger teams.  In these hub cities Worship Catalyst Connectors pull together the talent and resources of more established churches to help new church plants as they are just getting started. This intentional process of assessing needs and deploying resources to new churches is something we offer at no charge to the church plants. We are able to do all of this through the generous donations and support from churches, individuals, and para-church organizations. 

2. Worship Leader Essentials: This is the core training and mentoring process that Worship Catalyst utilizes to train and mentor worship leaders.  It is a 5-month mentoring process that begins with a 2-day on-site training for the worship leader and his or her pastor and continues with in-depth weekly mentoring for the worship leader. Topical highlights of the training include spiritual development and disciplines of a worship leader, value set development, creative service planning, leadership development principles and much more.  The investment for the 2-day on-site training and

5-month mentoring process is $899 (per church). Many denominations and church planting organizations have funds available to offset the cost.

3. Conferences and Seminars: The various leaders of Worship Catalyst have been privileged to speak in dozens of training conferences and seminars across North America, reaching thousands of pastors and worship leaders.
