The three-day leadership conference known as Catalyst West offered abundant insight, inspiration, and engaging experiences. Dozens of leading figures in the Church, organizations, and several industries added valuable content to the fun atmosphere. It was one of the most creative environments I’ve ever experienced firsthand. Read some of my favorite quotes from the speakers like Don Miller, Tony Hawk, Jon Acuff and Andy Stanley here.
I attended Catalyst West with my friends Nick Ristow and Christian Shaefer, my young adults pastor and a fellow ministry leader I mentor, respectively. We enjoyed the California sun, the beautiful campus of Mariners Church (the location at which the conference was held), and live music from artists including Gungor, All Sons & Daughters, Josh Garrels, Kevin Olusola, and comedic antics by duo Tripp & Tyler. Plus, there may have been a gospel choir and something involving Big League Chew. Here are some photos of the vibrant occasion:
