     Launched in January 2020, Vibrant Faith Catalyst is an online community and resource center for Christian leaders committed to transforming the way we envision and design faith formation for all ages in the 21st century. Vibrant Faith created Catalyst to build a community of Christian leaders who support, encourage, and challenge each other toward vital and vibrant faith formation in their churches, and to provide resources, tools, training, and enrichment to develop, sustain, and grow lifelong faith formation.
