Lead Pastor Brandon Matheson found that in Towns, Union, Clay, and Cherokee counties that there were approx. 70,000 residents and over 20,000 households and 164 churches. These churches represented all faiths, denominations, and doctrinal beliefs. Yet despite all of those churches, Pastor Brandon discovered very little of the 70,000 person population attended church and even fewer knew Christ as their Savior. In fact, he discovered between 50,000-60,000 people in our little pocket of the world do not have a church home.
This consumed Pastor Brandon's thinking and his heart. 50K became his battle cry. Somebody needed to begin reaching out to these 50,000+ people who for whatever reason don't attend church. 50K is the simple answer to why start another church? Catalyst Church began in the heart of our Pastor during his research and began to come to fruition in October 2011 when along with his family and seven other people Catalyst Church began.
