Catalyst is a one year university course delivered by Stirling Theological College, designed for young adults and emerging leaders who are passionate about making a difference. Catalyst provides students with a unique learning experience to discover a wider worldview, discern calling and develop gifts and theological understanding.

The course includes two cross cultural immersion trips (local and international), discussions with leaders from around the world and ongoing mentoring. Catalyst has a core commitment to integrative mission and holistic gospel - in vocation, justice and leadership.

DISCOVER more about what it means to follow Jesus, the needs of our global community and what motivates you. You will be challenged and inspired as we investigate a range of issues and innovative responses.

DISCERN what mission and ministry means for you as you experiment, reflect and engage with leaders from different sectors of society. You will become a greater interpreter of history and society, learning how to listen, act and take risks so others can flourish.

DEVELOP into someone who embodies a faith that loves, restores and creates hope in all spheres of society. You will develop skills critical in today's rapidly changing world such as communication, collaboration, conflict resolution and cross cultural understanding.
