Catalyst is the name of our student ministry here at FBC Fort Mill. Our purpose is the unleashing of a generation of Christ-Centered world changers. Stating it more clearly, our desire is to make disciples who make disciples. Please contact us: Derek Kiser, Student Pastor; Taylor Braswell, Associate Student Pastor.
Our purpose is this:
To glorify God by equipping students to become fully devoted followers of Christ. Breaking it down even smaller to make disciples that make disciples.
We talk to your students about Jesus. We talk about faith, doubts, questions and fears openly and honestly. We live our faith out loud. We serve here and around the world.
We shatter the stereotype that living for Christ is restrictive and boring. As we get to know Jesus, we have fun and get to know each other, too, in small groups, Bible studies, camps, retreats, on mission trips and during special events throughout the year. And together, we share Jesus with everyone we know.
We want our students to learn what it means to be a servant from an early age. We have a High School Student Leadership team that helps facilitate small group discussion on Sunday Nights for our Middle School Discipleship Groups. Some of or students on the Student Leadership Team also serve children Sunday nights in Awana. Every year our students have the opportunity to serve at Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the children in the Summer. In addition to this, our students serve at a local event every summer called Engage Fort Mill. During Engage Fort Mill our students serve our schools by helping teachers and administration get ready for the school year. Students need to learn what it means to serve before they become adults. We don’t want our students to fall into the trap of thinking they are the church of tomorrow because we want them to realize they are a part of the church today and can serve now.
