It’s a simple
Rather than the medieval contraption hurling things through the air, what we’re referencing is the catapult system that propels a jet off the deck of an aircraft carrier at 165MPH in under two seconds. What’s impressive about the catapult system is not what is seen on the surface, but what lies under the deck. Above deck, you see about two feet of metal on a small track. But below? There’s a semi-truck-sized machine with unbelievable sophistication and power. In the world of naval warfare, this innovation was a game-changer.
This is the posture we take as we engage those we serve. We want to be under the deck, propelling you forward towards the God-sized vision He’s given you.
We exist to help leaders build successful ministries that scale.
