IRVINE, Calif. — More than 3,000 leaders who love the Church will gather on Thursday and Friday (April 16-17) for the 7th annual Catalyst West event — focusing on “unifying, equipping, and challenging this community of change makers to evoke lasting change within our culture and world,” organizers said.

This year’s event, held at Mariner’s Church Irvine, will bring a host of fresh voices and thought leaders, including a change maker panel featuring a conversation on how the Church is partnering with community agencies in LA to create holistic change. The schedule includes team collectives that will offer a time for intentional connection and reflection on session topics, as well as special musical guests and entertainers.

Catalyst will also showcase its new app for the first time for Catalyst West attendees. The Catalyst App includes interactive, informative and fun activities to enhance the live event experience as well as exclusive content and access to community 365 days of the year, Catalyst states. The Catalyst App is available for both iPhone and Catalyst is unique in its ability to reach across denominations and backgrounds in order to gather leaders around the call of being ambassadors of reconciliation in the world.

Catalyst believes that through the commission of Jesus the local Church is the hope of the world and thus, fosters a community of leaders who are passionate about furthering the mission of the Church by gathering to be unified, equipped, and challenged.

“We want to embolden every leader who loves the Church,” said Tyler Reagin, new executive director for Catalyst. “That means any leader who is pouring their time and talent into serving the Church – from full-time pastors leading entire churches to marketplace leaders who are volunteering on Sundays, supporting church plants, leading small groups, etc.”
