Job Description:


Catalyst of Austin is a brand new church in the fastest growing city in the country - Austin, TX.


Our vision is to be "an urban church proclaiming the gospel of Jesus, making multi-cultural disciples and equipping them for the Kingdom mission in Austin and beyond."


We launched in January 2016 and in a few months, have seen God use our new church to make Jesus known in Austin and beyond.


Just this June, the largest Newspaper in Austin, the Austin American-Statesman, published a full feature story on our journey to start a church in Austin. Through God's grace, our story of faith was shared with over 2 million people.  Here is the link to the article: www.statesman.com/catalyst


Pastor Steve Blake was also recently featured in a Christian publication highlighting urban, mult-ethnic ministry. Here is the link to the article: http://christianstandard.com/2016/06/a-new-church-for-a-new-america/


We are humbled that in such a short time, God is using our church in such an amazing way!


We are now seeking to build our team of Associate Pastors to assist our Lead Pastor with shepherding, preaching, discipleship, outreach, worship, and oversight of specific ministries at our growing church. Along with continuing to build our Worship Ministry, Children's Ministry, Small Groups and Ministry Teams, we desire to build the following ministries in this next season: Marriage and Family Ministry, High School Ministry, Youth MInistry and College Ministry.


The ideal candidates will be gospel-centered and have a passion for discipleship and mission. Catalyst of Austin is intentional about building bridges with those who are unchurched. As such, we desire to be guided by the Holy Spirit to contextualize our ministry to a city that is almost 90% unchurched. The ideal candidates should be comfortable with building relationships with people who currently do not share a Christian worldview. 


If you are considering being a church planter in the future, this would be an ideal residency position.  Catalyst of Austin is a part of a church planting network and our prayer is to be a church planting church that plants other churches in our region in the near future. We are always looking for future church planters.


This opportunity is also for those who have a desire to be shepherding and/or teaching pastors. Our members have open hearts for the Word of God and for deep community.


For those who want to continue in their ministry calling in a unique context, this is the perfect place to be. If you feel God calling you to devote yourself to a specfic ministry such as Marriage and Family, Youth or College Ministry, this is a great opportunity to work with a team to build the ministry you feel God has laid on your heart.


We are not offering any paid positions at this time but we are offering an open door to embark on an adventure unlike any other. Stipends may be available in the near future with salaries being a possibility as the church grows. If you are willing to raise support, we can help you with that as all of our staff have had to raise support.


If this sounds like the Book of Acts to you, that's what we are going for. What if Austin could be like Antioch? Disciples being made from all cultures and disciple-making churches being sent out.

About the Church

Catalyst of Austin

Catalyst of Austin is a new church in Austin, TX. We are change agents changing how people embrace God and engage our community! We embarked on this adventure out of a desire to create a culturally relevant expression of Jesus’ church that is still true to his life and teachings. With God’s guidance, we hope to create a church that is more relational than institutional. We want to create a spiritual space where God's people can truly participate rather than simply spectate.
