Catalyst Student Ministries has able-bodied and able-minded teens ready to work for you! If you need help with raking leaves, yard work, gift-wrapping, setting up your remote control, babysitting, cleaning out gutters, etc. We have the teen for you!


Catalyst’s Rent-a-Teen program provides opportunities for our students to pay for upcoming camps, mission trips and retreats. Members of TBC hire teens to perform various tasks with the money earned going into a youth group’s account, under the teenager’s name. This money is then used to offset the cost of various student ministry events. This is a wonderful program that enables youth to not only attend events but also to build relationships with the people in our congregation.


If you have a need that our youth can help you with, please click here to submit a request form. The Rent-a-Teen program operates year-round so requests can be submitted at any time. Upon receiving a request, we will respond confirming receipt and again as soon as we have found youth available to rent. Thank you for your support!
