Who We Are

Ellen Livingood
Ellen founded Catalyst in 2005 and continues today as its director. With unique expertise built on wide experience in both agency and church, she brings to Catalyst an extensive background in communications, mission agency administration, mobilization, and consultation. For a number of years, she served as both coordinator of TEAM’s church partnerships office and director of global outreach at Grace Point Church in Newtown, PA.

Today from a base in suburban Philadelphia, Catalyst serves the missions community across North America and around the globe, calling on the expertise of various other experienced mobilizers as needed.
