What we do

When church leaders experience stalled small groups, a missional strategy that’s faltering, an uncertain or foggy future, or a team that’s not producing their best, they turn to Catapult.

Not a church? We also work with networks, denominations, missions agencies and a variety of para-church organizations.

%

The average church's % of attenders in a small group.

Catapult Stat: 150%

We help churches get a much higher percentage of attendance in a small group, and we do it through people experiencing deep spiritual transformation at the same time. In one church alone it was more than 150% of their attendance in group life.

How is that possible? We work with you to create group life strategies built for spiritual transformation and rapid reproduction.

%

The % of church growth through adding new believers

Catapult Stat: 41%

Churches termed as “growing churches” tend to add numbers by transfer growth, not because new people are coming to faith in Christ (which only happens at a rate of about 6% even for growing churches).

One church we worked with grew from a struggling church plant to more than 4500+ people. The catalyst for that growth? 41% of people who were part of the church came to faith through that church family.

Why are we seeing this happen?
We have these 3 ingredients in everything we do.

What is the Disciple Making Innovation Lab?

There are lots of disciple-making models you can import into your church, but whether it’s small groups, Missional Communities, curriculum or something else, it’s almost always developed in someone else’s church. And often times, it doesn’t work like it did in the original place.

EBOOK: HOW SPIRITUALLY MATURE ARE YOU?

In this ebook for small groups and staff teams, people identify their spiritual growth stage, barriers for that stage, the “spiritual gold” they pick up in that stage and practical next steps to move forward. Included are discussion questions that make it easy to jump straight into a meaningful conversation about what God is calling people into for their next season of spiritual maturation.

DETAILED INNOVATION CASE STUDY: EAST END FELLOWSHIP

Kickstart Disciple-Making is the disicpleship model created by EEF’s unique innovation for discipleship that came straight out of the principles of our Innovation Lab. The idea? There is No Plan B for Jesus. His whole plan for changing the world is disciples making disciples. Located in the inner city , this is truly a unique context and result.  Take a sneak peak.

STATE OF DISCIPLESHIP INFOGRAPHIC

We took a survey with a group of 2,132 leaders in the church to get a sense of their experience of discipleship in their local church and the larger Western church. We then took that data and turned it into a free downloadable PDF infographic, using this unique visual format to draw out some conclusions that are both illuminating and challenging.
