The CATAPULT conference returns on April 29-May 1 at Christ United Methodist Church in Mobile, AL. CATAPULT's goal is to launch leaders into Kingdom mission. More and more, we see the need to understand all Christians as missionaries. CATAPULT equips for that mission. Through inspiring talks during Community Sessions by leading voices in the missional movement, you will be encouraged and challenged to see where God is already at work right around you. Through helpful nuts and bolts teaching during Breakout Sessions by active and effective practitioners, you will be given tools to accomplish the dreams God is planting.

Over the past several years, your support of CATAPULT has allowed thousands of dollars to be given through CATAPULT grants. Several of these grants were the fulfillment of missional imagination cultivated at the conference. Feeding ministries, GED training, archery courses, among others, have allowed local churches to connect with and build relationships with new people in efforts to make new disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our announced speaker list is exciting. The Rev. Rudy Rasmus of St. John UMC in Houston led an inner city church toward renewal through serving new and more diverse people. The Rev. Becca Stevens is an author, chaplain, and founder of Magdalene House and Thistle Farms, a home for women and social enterprise. Hugh Halter has been a significant voice in the missional movement for over a decade. He is the lead pastor at Adullum in Denver as well as a co-author of The Tangible Kingdom.
