Hope Revolution isn’t all about a few key leaders, in fact, quite the opposite. Leadership is important, but it’s role is to empower everyone in the body to be equally valued for their gifts and talents. Hope Revolution desires to be a place of deep spiritual growth, adventurous faith, a community of compassion and a loving family where everyone and anyone is welcome.

The goal of leadership is to raise up a new wave of body ministry to work alongside the leaders spearheading this vibrant healthy church.

Katalyst Church was planted in 2011 by Mark and Cheryl Wilson, with the support of The Baptist Union of Victoria, Pakenham Baptist Church, Beaconfield Baptist Church and Berwick (Narre Warren) Baptist Church.

In 2016, Katalyst sensed God’s calling and appointed Matt and Tanya Patterson as Pastors.   In July 2019, Nathan Dawson was also appointed as a Pastor for a three year term (concluding June 2022). The Pastors along with the Elders and Deacons provide leadership and oversight of the church.

At the end of 2021, Katalyst Church was renamed to ‘Hope Revolution’ in response to a sense by the leadership that God was calling the church into a new season, with a new name.

The Hope Revolution leadership team have a firm conviction that Biblical leadership of the church is governed by the Five fold ministries of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. When leaders anointed in these five areas join forces to extend the Kingdom of God and equip believers, the church takes on the broad design that Jesus intended.
