In 2007, Catalyst Christian Church began with a few families in Pastor David Kibler’s living room. We held our first services in March, 2008, meeting at East Jessamine High School. In 2009, we moved to 4000 Park Central Avenue behind the Boot Store off 27.
In 2015 we start a new chapter as God has provided a new location in downtown Nicholasville. Starting in January of 2015 we have moved to 101 North 1st. St. directly behind the Jessamine County Courthouse. This will provide us the ability to minister directly to the city of Nicholasville.
Since then, we have been dedicated to our mission- “Build the Body, Change the World.” Since 2009, we have sent many people overseas on short-term mission trips to Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Kenya, Nepal, and India as well as sending full-time missionaries to Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Honduras. In 2012, we adopted 53 children in an orphanage in Dommeru, India which was named Catalyst Orphanage India.
Locally, we have partnered with Regeneration Church- a church plant in Huntington, WV- helping them get started. You will also find many Catalyst members involved in programs such as Amachi of Central Kentucky, partnering our adults with children affected by incarceration; going into prisons and teaching fatherhood skills in the Inside/Out Dad program, encouraging foster care and adoption, and other ways of reaching people on the margins of life.
