In Catalytic Strategy, a few missionaries will focus on a large scope with multiple universities and work to win and discover students, volunteers, and church partners who will form the movement team for local movements. Missionaries work with students toward the end goal of a campus movement that is:
The focus of all our efforts is to see God raise up the critical mass needed to launch a new movement in every university. We are trusting God to raise up a team of like-hearted disciples through whom He can supernaturally work to connect, build, and send toward fulfilling of the Great Commission. Catalytic missionaries focus simultaneously on multiple universities, usually 7-20, as they take the initiative to network and evangelise, discovering where God is working and where He is preparing hearts, resources, and partners. They use a variety of strategies to connect and discover potential volunteers and leaders through whom the movement will grow.
They work to see each location move forward along the following continuum: (a) pioneering and networking to (b) recruiting a few key volunteers (KV) who are aligned with our mission, and then (c) those volunteers form a team that will (d) grow and launch new multiplying movements.
Their role is to discover, envision, equip, encourage, and empower others to execute the mission and vision. We believe that God has promised in His word that He is already working, preparing believers and even non-believers to be a part of a movement in many locations. He is the sovereign Lord and we cannot make any guarantees, but our job is to go out by faith and discover where God is working and join Him there. Not all schools will be ready, not all locations will go at the same pace. Just as the New Testament letters testify, this kind of ministry is full of adventurous challenges. The churches we read about had problems and issues that needed much prayer, correction, equipping, exhortation, and shepherding, but they saw God do amazing things. Few things are more exciting than seeing young students begin to lead as they experience and follow Christ! All over the world, God is working and hundreds of new ministries are growing, do we dare join Him?
