Catalyst church in Bangalore

"Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6)

Catalyst—APC's school outreach initiative started in 2008 is geared toward impacting young lives in schools across the city, to help them know their Creator and discipling them to have a personal relationship with Jesus. We believe that the Catalyst initiative will also inspire change in every area of their lives—be it in their values, choices, decisions, reactions and even in their lifestyles, as they step out of their schools and into the world. Our end goal is to make each student a 'catalyst' in the place where God leads them and to impact lives across the world for Christ's glory. Our mission is to disciple them every year in the ways of the Lord. Upon the completion of their schooling, we pray that they would live as children of God and as citizens of the heavenly Kingdom.

For the Scripture program, we use our own curriculum, which is a four-part program.

Part I – Who Jesus is!
Narrating various Bible stories, we tell the children about Jesus

Part II – Salvation Series
We talk to the children about sin and its consequences, and the salvation that Jesus Christ provides through faith in Him, and lead them to accept Christ.

Part III – Wrong Attitudes
With the help of Bible stories, we highlight wrong attitudes and ways to deal with and overcome them.

Part IV – Right Attitudes
We teach about attitudes that please God.

For the Value Education program, we use the ‘Dare to be Different’ curriculum.
